Ok... So arriving at this trail had me confused because it seemed like the entrance to the Veterans Trails which it actually is. This route however is if you take a right instead of a left at the beginning and is honestly much more fulfilling. This section has a decent percentage in forest and there are many birds including hummingbirds, quail and some raptors. I would recommend bug repellent in the forested areas as the mosquitoes are in abundance. The climbs are moderate but much more interesting than the Veterans side. The mountain bike activity seems lower on this side as well which is nice for hikers and birders.

Indeed a nice trail, ut not Freestone - the trail you indicate includes parts of buckhorn, Shane's, and the Central Ridge Trails. Freestone is on next ridge to the north.
