Great terrain, but the path is too narrow for hikers and bikers to share.

I rode the orange trail and there were roots and rocks everywhere. I'm a beginner so perhaps that is why I didn't like it. Good workout but not flowing.

I really enjoyed this trail, if you’re looking to do the 6.5 mile loop I suggest starting at Shelter 8 and then going to Walnut Grove, the signs are easier to follow that way. The violet trail consists of 3 loops (2.85, 1, and .7 miles) and a connector (.76miles) so you can change up your length and/or direction. Part of the violet trail is also equestrian so there is some poop to watch out for. I went on a Sunday late afternoon and it was pretty busy but then I also went Tuesday and Wednesday after work and the trails weren’t too busy. It is very rocky, there are some roots sticking out and some fallen trees (makes for a more interesting hike in my opinion) also various inclines. I’d suggest bringing water, especially in the heat and there is a nozzle on the connector that you can refill. Lastly it does close when/after it rains to avoid damaging the trails so be aware of that.
