Lots of mountain bikes made this trail far too busy, especially with a dog that is hard to pull out of the way in time for fast-moving bikes. The whole thing is quite sun exposed as well. Not a great choice as a hiker.

This is a great trail for young ones! My six year old loves walking this area.

decent family hike maybe, some decent views but too many houses and roads near the trail.

Easy walking trail with very little shade. There were more mountain bikers on the trail than hikers.

Loved the trail and the view. I hiked it but I think a mountain bike is more the idea on this one.

Super fun! Perfect for all levels. Connects to Lory state park and coyote ridge areas.
