Great view and well maintained trails. But there were groups of rude mountain bikers, which is unusual. Most mountain bikers in other trails have been so nice and courteous. Trail is narrow, and they rode without slowing down. one after another. We had to climb up side of the narrow trail so that they would not hit us.
It was a beautiful sunny yet cool day. I noticed my dog was seeking for shady areas constantly. And I got the worst sun poisoning when we got home. Do not forget bringing a lot of water!

Led a meetup group around this trail 1/13/18. Really great trail for most beginners because of its moderate incline and relatively short distance.
It's been a warm, dry winter, and there was no snow on trail.

Great location. Trail takes you down first so the first 1.5miles coming from Sawmill Trail nice decline. Then some moderate incline the remaining mile but overall pretty easy hike. Lots of shade and wind so it was cold but no snow yet!
Love this park!

Beautiful area! Nice easy trail until you go past the campground and the Sawmill trail ends. We took a right on Maverick trail and it was uphill with a lot of rocks. When we got to the top of the mountain we took Belcher trail to the upper parking lot. Nice hike!
