Nice trail but the app directions were hard to follow as there are many offshoot trails. If you get off the trail onto some of the offshoot trails it can go from easy to hard pretty quickly. I went down a hill and ended up sliding about 10’ down the hill on my rear. I did comes home with something to talk about.

#tenlegstosunset Tried out a new trail, which turns out to be a series of bike trails. The saved course on All Trails didn’t do much good at first since there are a variety of trails and all off shoots seemed well groomed enough. GPS and map worked well since it’s pretty close to neighborhoods and the city. It was a nice workout regardless and once I got a handle I realized it’s a good option close to home. Went late in the day, so we ran into nobody else. My concern was where I parked, not sure if it was someone’s property or an easeway.

lots of fun!!!
great scenery. Wide enough to feel safe, enough options to keep the ride interesting.

What a blessing to have such a great trail right in the middle of west side neighborhoods! Great views of the valley to the east and klamaths to the west. I turned back at the vista point, but will be sure to revisit to follow it further.

I do not think this is an "easy" trail. Comparable to Hornbeck.

Nice paved trail, would be great for biking. Great scenery, quiet and hardly any traffic.
