Loved the climbing and descending. Great trail to get quick climbs with instant downhill reward. Sun exposure pretty solid with some moments of shady reprieve. It was breezy today and that was helpful. Be in the lookout for bikers! Everyone was friendly. #runninggoddess

This was a beautiful hike and trail, however, about 90% of it is sun exposed and I prefer something with a little more variety. There were a lot of mountain bikers who were all super kind and courteous!

Gradual climb with nice eastern facing views. It's wide open except for about 1 mile on the western side of the loop. It'll be too hot in summer, but very nice now. Lots of fragrant chokeberries blooming.

An easy loop with the minimum amount of elevation to interest me, lots of wild life. The only qualm I have is sharing the trail with mountain bikers. Go on an "odd" day and bikers can only do the loop one way and it can/might save you a headache.
