As others have said, lots of mountain bikes (which isn't a problem) but severely limited parking (which is). The trail itself was a really nice out and back with plenty of wildlife to see.

As others have mentioned, very few parking spots available so I would advise against going during popular hiking times. Lot's of mountain bikers on this trail network, moreso than hikers. Opportunity to see deer, prairie dogs, turkey. I'd list this as closer to easy than moderate, but there is a lot of uphill in the beginning.

There are ten parking spots and no alternate lot. Good luck.

Love this one. Just enough ups and downs. Beautiful colors. Watch out for the mountain bikers, friendly but will run you over if you aren't paying attention.
