The trail was wide and easy to navigate. Great beginner trail for hiking/biking. Waterfall close by. Saw motorcycles on trail. A gate blocked vehicluar traffic at the primary entry point. Parking scarce though. Parked in nearly deserted fire station lot but was told not to do that in the future. When asked for best place to park in the area, she shrugged and implied that it was a public works issue and that she had no recommendations. Would get more stars if parking was better.
