The Alambique trail heading towards the creek from the crossroads is closed, so doing the figure 8 is not possible (as of 06/03).

You're not allowed to mountain bike on this trail. Do NOT start from Woodside and expect to ride up and then back down. That being said, if you do decide to mountain bike this track, it's a nice ride. Coming back up on Alambique isn't difficult.

I agree with Elizabeth: this is rather a moderate run. Large trail, not so steep uphills. Very nice !

Very nice, but not many viewpoints. Did the whole loop in two hours with easy to moderate intensity.
