Wasn't impressed, didn't hike the whole trail. Would be a good bike trail but not much for site seeing.

The trail is fairly straight, level, and containing mostly the same scenery. Overall though, i enjoy coming here if I'm doing an 8 mile tempo run. As i said, it's flat and relatively straight; very good for quick runs. If your biking (wide tire) or hiking, i would suggest you make an immediate right once the trail starts. It's a more interesting path through the forest.

Walked from Willow Springs Rd. to Tri-State Tollway(3 Miles)
Between the loop course is a great path for mountain bikes.
Wide trail for walking

Very easy, level, paved trail. Hikers, runners and cyclist make it often times crowded. Nice walk along Cal Sag.
