Beautiful trails and views. keep an eye out for mountain bikers. They are very courteous. Try to give them the right of way when you can.

Can be narrow so if a biker comes, hard to get out of the way. However I feel it’s a gem of a nice short trail. Good weather and has different options!

Fun little hike after the rain. Really cut down on the number of people that were out. Some parts of the trail were flooded but just makes for a more interesting outing.

Beautiful views all around! Lots of small trails that branch off and then connect again. Share the trail! We saw horses, bikers, hikers and dogs! The trails are narrow so we had to step aside to let others pass to maintain social distance.

Middleridge Trail offers excellent views and opportunities to hike some elevation gain. Not too happy that AllTrails app decided to stop recording for about an hour in the middle of the hike.

Nice local trail. There’s a lot of traffic noise and the trail isn’t well marked. Hikers seemed mostly respectful with masks and left plenty of space from each other to socially distance.

Went mid week very few people on the trail you’ll get your exercise plan you up and downs gnarly rocky downhill at the turn could be pretty sketchy when it’s dry this summer

Came out on a drizzly weekend and was able to get a good parking spot around noon. There were several bikers and hikers around, but we were mostly by ourselves on the trails. We had our two German Shepherds with us and they enjoyed the adventure. Lots of great dog owners who stepped aside to let us pass since the trails were mostly narrow. Very little signage with lots of forks in the trails so we didn’t end up following the recorded trail as marked, but was able to easily find our way around. Lovely views for the area! Be sure to check for ticks after. We found several!

Really great area, excellent views and certainly is moderate intensity. As others have noted, on the way back stick to the Middle Ridge portion so it’s mostly out and back instead of the lower “Shade” trail due to the preponderance of mountain bikes.

Peaceful, shady trail with beautiful views at the top. We took some wrong turns and ended up near the neighborhood but easily found our way back when we looked at the app.
