I am 58 with RA and recovering from foot surgery. That being said, I loved this trail. It was so green and beautiful. The trail starts out very narrow which to me just means I have to watch my steps (to protect the ankles.). There are some trees blown down across the path that you will need to step over or go under. We made it to the loop and went right. However, within 1/2 a mile or so it had patches of muddy trail. So we turned around and hiked back out. To be fair we had not intended to hike the entire trail this time. My son was with me and would like to come back and bike it. There was one girl mountain biking, but she turned back at the same muddy spot we did. A couple more weeks and I’ll bet a lot of the mud will be dried up. We will be back.

Great trail! Did this with my 13 yo nephew. We made two days out of it by backpacking and overnighting. Definitely plenty of places to set up camp. Also lots of good tree coverage for hiking in the shade. Only downside was the mosquitos and all the mud. Pretty sure the mosquitos are probably a regular but the mud was definitely due to all the snow melt.
