There are three bike/hike trails here. Violet loop is an advanced trail that is pretty rocky. Orange loop which is an intermediate trail. The violet trail is a lil too rocky for my liking. Although, the orange trail is a blast! You pick up some serious speeds at times.I ride it at-least once a week.

Very busy with lots of off leash pooches to greet you.

We actually did the Orange, Gold, Red and Violet trails on this one hike. Very rocky throughout. Wear hiking boots for sure. And bring water!! Be careful of bikers in the narrow parts of the trail.

These trails are for mountain biking. If you look at the map at the trail head, it identifies them as biking trails. We hiked them because of the reviews here and found out quickly that they are too narrow for a biker to pass a hiker without said hiker having to step completely off the trail and into thick underbrush. The park is lovely, though, and there are much better places for people not on bicycles to have fun (including actual hiking and walking trails south of the lake.)
