This part of Lebanon Hills Regional Park is mostly known for Mountain Biking. However, it also has a 4 mile trail for hiking and open through the winter season for snow shoeing and cross country skiing. The trail is very well marked and easy to navigate. It's a great hike through the woods. This trail has great terrain for those that are looking to do some trail running. Because of the rocky landscaping and many hills, it would be a good challenge and probably not for beginners. There was barely any flat landscaping here except for some of the turns. Even thought it's more known amongst Mountain Bikers, the hiking trail is separate and very well marked. The only time you may see bikers is at a few intersections and for a split second they run parallel with the hiking trail.
