This is a very scenic ride with some rarely noticeable elevation. The trail is in good shape, mostly dual track with some areas that narrow, making it hard to pass. The mileage is well marked and accurate, making it easy to create a loop of any length. The trail has light traffic during weekdays, but can get very heavy on the weekends.

Very nice gravel trail to bike. Trailhead can be accessed in a neighborhood but the main parking lot is at mile marker .03 which is no big deal. Best to start early in the day as it can be fairly packed late morning or afternoon.

Love love this trail. Great for everything. Biking, walking or running. Family & pet friendly. It's a flat dirt trail. The Gunpowder River runs along side of it. Things to see at different areas along the way!

Depending on the day, you can have a really relaxing walk or a nearly stressful jaunt with too many bikers, dogs, and kids.

The trail is extremely crowded which makes it difficult to enjoy the natural beauty of the area.
