This is a lovely trail with little rivers and pretty scenery. There's hilly terrain and I went during the winter so parts of the trail were icy. I got lost trying to do the full loop. The trail can intersect with a nearby trail if you aren't paying attention. So I suggest using this app to stay on course.

Great loop trail with moderately difficult hike up a steep, winding trail. Great hill to train on!
Mill Creek adds a nice touch to this enjoyable trail. Horseback rider was on the trail too.
