This is a very large trail system. Although landlocked, you really do feel like you are deep in the forest (despite hearing the highway traffic in some areas). Hikers do need to take caution, as these trails are primarily used for mountain biking. I actually kept one headphone out so that I could hear anyone coming up behind me so I could step aside. I covered about 3-4 miles, and probably passed 8-10 bikers. Overall, a great, well marked trail with a lot of cool boardwalks, and trail variation. Can get buggy!
