Nice trail to prepare for hiking trips. The trail is unmarked in one part but it’s easy to figure out. Good ~10 mile hike!

Good for distance and building up endurance for other adventures but certain spots lacked signs for first time out on the trail to easily know where to go from there.

Good distance loop that’s good for training for other adventures. Trail isn’t very inspiring and mountain bikers (though courteous) tend to rule the trail and run you off to the side. Trail is clean but could use improvement on way signage.

For the most part the trail is well marked , but at times can be a bit confusing. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the trail system. A lot of bikers on the trail but they are very polite. Trail a little torn up from horses. Orange trail more rugged but shorter. Great place for an urban setting.

AllTrails map is shorter than the actual marked trail.
