Wonderful trail to take your energetic pup for a long walk he’s wiped. Beautiful flowers there are a lot of mountain bikers so if you do take your dog off leash make sure the pups well behaved, we didn’t have any issues. Wasn’t too hard but was a lot longer than the expected 8.1 miles. Not good peak views during summer but I bet you will be rewarded with views during winter or end off fall when the leaves are stripped. The plus not too many bugs but I deeted the crap out of life. Not a well marked trail with lots of trail branches which was not confusing if you have a map. I love all the trail options which allow for creative hiking and multiple uses of the switchbacks. Would 100% do it again!

A gorgeous, scenic trail. You will enjoy the greenery and soothing nature there. BUT in terms of trail signs and marks this trail is the worst among others in the area. Even with GPS there is a good chance of getting lost. Overall 4S!

Great clear trails but not well marked, most are not marked at all. I highly recommend having a trail map or this app tracking. We ended up taking other trails inadvertently many time. Some we backtracked from but others we just stayed on. We ended up doing just over half the loop and that was still a nice hike. We enjoyed the changing terrain, chipmunks and many little bridges. it seems as though one could spend a day hiking in there and not hit the same trail twice. This is a great mountain bike trail but we only saw a few out there.
