Nice trail. Rained on me several times. But still made it through the full trail. And scenic off shoots.

Started at ~10AM and did the typical loops. But I also went to Bill Couch Mt. and the scenic trail which added ~2 more miles to the loops. My total distance was 12 miles and time was 4 hours and 20 mins. My favorite part was probably red mesa loop since it had a lot of cover and the most forested part of all the trails. The rock piles at the top of the scenic trail was fun to climb and get a decent view from up top. The last leg was pretty rocky and when you are fatigued and have two bad ankles you ought to be extra careful. Good practice for 14ers although not nearly the altitude.

Mountain bikers be aware that the Meadowlark Trail is closed to bikes so you must ride clockwise - Plymouth Creek Trail is a rocky technical & narrow uphill that direction with lots of hikers - we turned around and cut our ride short. Disappointed in this trail for biking.
