It was a beautiful trail but about 3 miles in the trail became very muddy with trees down. We were unable to continue because of a very large tree that our horses could not get over and there was no clear way around it. I was disappointed because I had heard that there was a beautiful meadow with great views to see. It would be an excellent hiking trail but not so much for horses.

We went in November - gorgeous secluded trail with an amazing aspen grove and lovely creek.

Our three year old needed very little assistance (mostly crossing the bridges) the first 1/4 mile goes through private property so stick to the trail(and lock gates where posted) The trail winds through beautiful lush forest and follows a small creek (mostly run off I believe) I highly suggest it to anyone with kids. No biking! but horseback is allowed and would be so fun there.
