This is a single track trail mostly for mountain bikers. I didn’t see anyone else on foot. There is parking at the base and no restrooms. It’s an easy quick trail, with turn offs to hike into the cemetery or see the peaks from. There is little shade cover and I would NOT recommend this trail on a hot day. Too dusty and no shade.
