Hiking

Beautiful easy stroll trail, the only downside is the heavy traffic of mountain bikers otherwise pristine views, beautiful sky, serene greenery down in the valley, high and dry spots in the higher part of the trail. There are many ways to hike it and the signage isn’t too good, we ended up losing the trail at some point and following Apple Maps back the car. Some parts down in the valley with beautiful meadows and cotton tufts drifting in the air felt very peaceful and secluded. I haven’t been to Swiss Alps but thought they must be like this Wonderful :)

This an excellent trail for hiking or cyclists of all levels. I take our 4yr old and 6yr old on this trail and they love it too!! There are areas where you will have to walk your bike but it is well worth it. Great views too!!

The trail was pretty confusing to follow (no signs) and when we would get on the trail where the app said it was, it was clearly not a trail. It could’ve been my signal, but it was still a very pretty hike! We saw a lot of people out and that was comforting when we felt lost :)

Nice easy trail, perfect for shaking the cabin fever. A little rocky and lots of dried mud but otherwise a nice little hike.
