Great trail for the area. Rocky in some spots but easy overall. Hiked it with my 2yr old and he enjoyed it.

Came with my dog & there were about 3 or 4 signs that said no pets (aside from service animals) so if you’re wanting to use this trail don’t bring your pets

Getting ready for backpacking trip so hiked this one today w/35lb pack & gear. Trail is well groomed w/minor elevation changes through medium/dense forests. A couple areas where trail is rocky but not too challenging.
Tick/mosquito repellent highly recommended.
If you're looking for a leisurely hike through the forest this one is worth it.
