Decently marked trails. Even in wet weather, the trails don't get too muddy. Lots of equestrian activity.

I did the total yellow loop. Very nice trail, but be careful after heavy rain. It is clear that lots of parts flood after a storm. Give it a couple days and it will be ok. I went on a Sunday and traffic was low to none in some parts. Very nice interaction with trail runners, hikers, and horse riders. This trail must be very beautiful when foliage blooms in a month or so. I highly recommend it!
