I would not recommend this trail. It goes along a bunch of homeless camps and mainly used by bike riders. I would take the bike less trails and stay off any little side trails. They more than likely lead you to homeless camps. Pogonip used to be better but now it’s full of homeless in every nook and cranny of the park!

I would call this a biking trail. If you prefer quiet hiking, I’d go elsewhere.

Trail was great. A lot of trash and homeless shelters. A lot of mountain biking traffic on a Sunday afternoon made it less pleasant to hike with dogs.

A tree fell down blocking the trail today.
