There are better trails around town for hikers. This has some nice views and varying terrain, but probably better for mountain biking.

Good hike. Great views after mile 3 In the talus field. Then great views of Wilson Peak and Sunshine Mountain. Pay attention to the map because it's easy to get sidetracked if you follow the bike tracks. (I ended up over a mile SW because I didn't prepare)

Trail is well marked. Not out and back which is good. Not much of a grade, also nice. However, clearly caters to mountain biking, views are limited and can get monotonous. Hiking on the slopes not aesthetically pleasing IMO. I would rate it 3 stars if it was only 4-5 miles.
