Difficult climb on dead cow trail as it is full of channels and holes. But a great down hill ride after the climb.

Really peaceful Canyon, mostly wide trail, better to hike in cooler evening. I've hiked in midday and the sun kinda wipes you out as there are limited shade and breezes. Well travelled by bikers and hikers, listen for the bike bells and step to the left!

As I anticipated the Cheeseboro Canyon Trail was very busy with hikers, hikers with dogs, and bicycles. Parking lot was near capacity at 9:30 when I arrived. I was walking a friends dog which complicates the hike. She is getting old and now moves rapidly away from aggressive dogs. I usually sit her down so in her haste to get away, I don't trip over her. In a couple instances we had bicycles and dogs converging at the same place. Once a couple horses were thrown into the mix, If you want a more peaceful experience from this trailhead get off the Cheeseboro Canyon Trail and onto one of the many other options. You won't have the trail to yourself but it'll be way less crowded.

super crowded. It should say heavily-trafficked trail with lots of mountain bikers. It is pretty, but poor signage is confusing. There is a ranger trailer with a very nice, helpful ranger. If you're looking for a nice, peaceful hike this is not for you. If you're a mountain biker or runner, you'll love it.

Went for a quick hike about 11:15 on a perfect Saturday (first weekend of March). Parking lot was full. Managed to get a spot that I assume someone else had recently vacated. People were parked in most every conceivable place that wasn't designated no parking. By 11:00 parking will usually free up some but not this particular day. When planning a hike in Cheeseboro Canyon on a weekend, I'd have an alternative in mind. Between the parking lot closing because it's too muddy and it being full because its a good day, you may need to go to plan B. If you're in a group with multiple cars, carpooling is recommended.
