The app has it listed as a biking/hiking trail of moderate difficulty which couldn't be farther from the truth. I walked 3 miles out and 3 back on a wide, paved walkway. There are parts that are a little gravely but otherwise it's basically a sidewalk. There are lovely views and plenty of delicious blackberries so that was very pleasant. Bring sunscreen as there's little tree cover.

road the trail yesterday on my road bike and have to report that the trail wasn't as fun as I hoped. it was like riding on a sidewalk (alittle rough). it made the experience less enjoyable. I have been on gravel trails that were similar. I'm glad I road it for the experience, but wouldn't ride it again.
