Great to see the new growth after the fire. Great trail, not a lot of elevation gain.

The trail is in great condition as of May 2018. A lot of mountain bikers on the trail (and a few dirt bikers), but beautiful and pretty quiet aside from that. The trail has some steady climbs and would definitely be safe to run, as the path is clear and pretty rock-free the whole way. Beautiful views, too!
