Excellent. Even on a hot day w/o any canopy. Went down Emerald Cyn Rd & up Old Emerald Falls Trail, got lost and went down Moro Ridge Rd rather than go back up to Bommer as I had intended. Was still worth it and what a run. FYI, Old Emerald Falls needs a lot of manicuring(workers were out today doing that) plus a lot of cactuses right up on the edge of this single track. Definitely do not want to MTB this trail as one will definitely end up with many a spike in their legs.

It was fine. Good beginners' challenge. Looking forward to adding Lizard Trail onto it or Bomner. A bit crowded, but not bad. Again, it was fine.

Love the views and love the uphills that keep the momentum going! Wish it was dog friendly, but I understand coyotes are popular in the area and that would make it unsafe for everyone if dogs are around. I highly recommend this trail to anyone that loves a good nature hike!

Beautiful scenery throughout this very diverse trail. The route type changed 3 times; steep, mountainous incline to moderate rocky trail to flat plane. Signage is a bit tricky to follow so this app was very helpful. Great hike
