part of the trail on the west side is still closed due to the fires. You can navigate around this area and complete the trail, but it's a bit tricky finding a "through route".

I’d say it’s longer than the length advertised, parts of the trail are still closed but we were able to follow most of it. It’s a nice hike!

Unfortunately all the trails are close due to the fires that came through the area

Nice trail. Moderate climb on a fire road up to Robbers Peak. Single track most of the way back. It is popular with bikers so use caution on the way down

So long as you are cool to share the trail with mountain bikers and the occasional horse, there is plenty to enjoy. Interesting footing along the sharp turns and rocky climbs. There are a lot of crisscrossing trails so be sure to either keep your phone handy for reference.

Fun hike! We saw a lot of spring flowers, small frogs everywhere in the lowland marsh area, and a rattlesnake in the middle of the trail. Not too difficult, but a nice workout for sure.
