Love this trail. It’s beautiful and well maintained. Some decent elevation changes for a bit of a challenge. The only drawback in my mind is that it’s open for horseback riding as well. In my experience the horse waste does not get cleaned up all that well so you have to keep a bit of an eye out.

Im recently looking for hiking trails in the area, and while this one is great, Ive found the mountain bike trails that are seemingly unmapped through the park to be much longer and better. They offer great views too, just dont get lost and keep an eye out for bikes coming through!
