Tried hiking this trail several times, however too many bikers. Some are good at letting you know they are coming, but others aren't and are rude and make you feel you shouldn't be hiking on this trail.

This trail is a little too rough for roller skating. There are a few bridges to go over. There are plenty of stops for restrooms and water. I suggest going early in the morning so that you have some shade. Overall a nice trail.

Definitely mostly for bikers very few walkers or joggers. We did the entire trail over a few days totaling 29 miles going out and back. We really enjoyed it trail clean and well kept. Improvements being made and hope they pass the bond issue to add 30 more miles. Will use for bicycling when we relocate there most people were very polite had two her were rude and yelled to get out of their way.
