Great trail. No bikes on a Thursday 10-2. Runs along the creek so you can hear running water through the hike!!

Easy walk from where I was staying to trail head. Encountered a few bikers but a good morning hike.

Spent two hours meandering this trail with my toddler. It was perfect for him, 3 bridges which he could throw rocks and sticks off, mostly shaded and through forest, a place to dip feet in the steam. On an August Tuesday from 10-12pm we saw 1 biker only.

Nice trail. Mostly uphill on the way out but numerous level patches to ease the walk. Good mix of sun and shade for the hot July noonday we walked this on. LOTS of flowers and berries (not yet ripe in early July) and a riot of trees. We only saw wrens and woodpeckers, but heard many other birds. A smattering of exposed geology to admire. This seemed definitely to be a favored trail bike route - we were the only hikers but were overtaken by 7-8 individual riders - so you want to keep an eye out in front and behind. All the riders we saw were in control and courteous.

NOT KID FRIENDLY. It was a nice hike until my wife and kids were almost run over by downhill bikers. We were actively watching for bikes, unfortunately they were absolutely not watching for hikers. Would not recommend this trail for anyone on foot.
