Enjoy this trail year round but especially in the fall when the foliage is changing. Mostly shaded, not too challenging. You won't see many far off views but there are a couple and the fir forest on the north end of the trail is truly lovely. Preserve maintenance has come through here recently and the trail was very clear of vegetation. Led a hike group here today with several cars; we do a car shuttle and start the hike at the south end so we finish at the north end where we can enjoy our lunch at the picnic tables.

Nice trail. Mostly flat with a few hills. It's very overgrown right now so bring bug spray!
