It was kind of busy with bikes and through out the first 2.5-3 miles. I wouldn’t mind the bikes except there were many corners and the path was only wide enough for one of us. I had to dodge some bikers as they came down hill in some sketchy spots. After that I only saw a couple and this was on a Friday afternoon. I wasn’t too happy with the footing. There was a ton of loose gravel on steep inclines. It did have some epic views and a 2 cool tunnels towards the end. It does end on the last 3 miles on a flat smooth surface. I wasn’t a fan of that, I’m a ginger we need constant shade when we’re out in the wild
