I ride this a couple times a week, it’s roughly 3.4 miles, not 2.8. There are some limbs & spots that could used cleaned up, but alternate routes are easy to access. The first couple times I rode I had wished things were better marked, but all in all it’s a good trail for a quick conditioning ride after work.

Overgrown and littered with trash. Only was able to go about 1/4 mike before turning back and was covered in ticks. Doesn’t look like the trail ha been maintained in years.
