this trail has btwn light & moderate traffic. excellent trail for good exercise tho. if u go left @ the bottom of the loop, the first half is single lane & the 2nd is quite wide and gravel.

loved every pedal of this trail, single track even the wide fire road areas. little wet soggy in the climbing section going clockwise around the loop but worth anyone's time looking for a close ride to town!

Very bottom and top loop are very beautiful single trail. Looking forward to seeing the flowers in the next month, definitely coming back to see them all in bloom. Creek is burbling, lots of birdsong, a little traffic noise down low. Nice hike so close to all this humanity.

Encountered alot of mosquitos in the beginning of June so beware, wear pants & long sleeves. Great workout, uphill & downhills, lots of birds.

Half of the loop is so epic and the other half is private commercial land.
