Not a difficult hike, just too expose to the sun, pretty views. I think it would be way better mtn biking.

A lot of hill. Kinda hard. Super pretty. We actually cut it short by two miles because none of us wanted to walk up the last steep hill about halfway through the hike. Ran into what I think was a bobcat. Only saw half of it before it ran into the bushes. About the size of a medium sized dog.

The views are phenomenal and the elevation gain is challenging. You’re on paved roads for a portion of the loop, but it’s minimal—maybe three miles total? I ran this alone and encountered only mountain bikers, insofar as humans are concerned—keep an eye out for snakes on the trail and coyotes venturing out to do their business on the road.

No I didn’t follow the trail map. The trail gave me a general idea of where I wanted to Hike today. Hiking alone presents dangers when few hikers are on the trail during these pandemic conditions. I will hike to the second lake when I have someone to hike with. Beautiful trail.

This trail is a great hiking trail just be watchful of bicycles. They'll pop up at every corner. the trails are well marked and easy to follow. Brought my dog he loved it. some parts are steep and slippery even when dry so have some good shoes. some views were really fantastic and some trails very tight. I am definitly going to hike it again.

Easy stroll with decent views. Lots of mtn bikers during weekends, so be ready to share the road at times.

Walking

Simple trails that is rarely crowded. Being lost in wilderness without leaving the city. My little piece of heaven. Great for mountain biking, but please share the road with walkers and runners, don't zoom downhill at 20mph, you will end up hitting someone or crash into the bushes.
