I take my bike on this trail at least twice a week. It's just a nice trail to add to my 19 mile ride. There are a lot of people that use this trail. A lot of dog walkers. Which I love to see all the good looking dogs! So far all owners have been gracious to be aware of me passing and coming toward them. I try to be respectful of them and slow down and give them a heads up before passing.
This trail is gorgeous and I love how wide it is! Just an easy, low key trail and I'll keep using it. You can't beat the views from this trail!

This is a great leg-stretcher or dog walking trail. I did it today in the snow. The scenery is always beautiful. This is a good place to walk off a nice dinner on a summer evening.
