nothing exciting but good when you dont have a lot of time and need to squeeze in some cardio. patches of snow and ice but mostly muddy and no shade. no traction needed. only saw like 4 other groups on a sunday.

Snowpacked and muddy among the trees. But that adds charm.

Mountain bikingNo shade

It was my first Mountain Bike trail, overall I loved it. I went on a Saturday, more mountain Bikers then hikers. Everyone was very courteous when passing, or letting me by. The climbs are not that tough it has a decent mixture of smooth ups and downs. No shade out there.

HikingGreat!No shade

Well-marked, excellent signage. Beautiful views, trail goes through grasslands and scrub oak groves. Relatively easy elevation gains and descents. Rocky in spots. 32-spot parking lot at the Coachline Road trailhead. Take the 9.5 mile loop or use one or more of the many bypass trails to shorten. Recommend!

HikingGreat!

Mileage is a bit closer to 9.5 miles r/t. Relatively easy trail that flows up and down throughout. Depending on time of day, there can be a variety of wildlife, especially near dawn or dusk. There are a lot of mountain bikers on weekends but most are very courteous.

This trail is fine, but not really anything to write home about. It would be a super convenient trail system for anyone who lives in the surrounding neighborhoods, but otherwise I don't know that it's really worth a drive. This would make a good beginner-friendly trail running area. It's not too technical. There is no shade.

it was my first time on a substantive trail. I took my hybrid which was clearly unsuitable for this Trail. the trail is challenging but not too hard if you have a mountain bike. The view at the top is beautiful. there are also some places where you can take a bypass, which will get you through, or back to your car, faster. all-in-all all it's great exercise and has good, but not great views.
