Great trail but it's definitely moderate to difficult in many areas, so be ready and in shape. Really pretty with a lot of photo opportunities. Trails are well worn and easy to follow, but if you are not familiar with Busiek I suggest bring a GPS. If you get lost on the trails near dark, plan on staying the night or fire/rescue can come and lead you out. :) Also, there is wildlife in the woods, so be "Bear Aware." Being raised in this area, I've spent thousands of hours in these woods and know the area extremely well. Overall, a great place to hike/camp.

I ran this for the first time. It was thoroughly enjoyable. Difficult hills and rocks added to the beauty. The water crossing were not. A problem either. When you start running it’ll take just a minute to warm up. All the negative reviews are for people with no imagination and find little discomforts like rocks and flowing water to ruin their time.
One of the most vivid memories of my run was a particular oak tree that stood out amongst many other trees. I can’t wait to run the whole trail system when it’s all green.

Nice little workout. Took us a total of 3 hours. You do have to cross the creek a couple times but we took our shoes off and just walked across.

This was a very nice hike in 30 degree weather. We took the red/yellow trail first and then stayed on the yellow trail and took some of the yellow/grey trail but stayed on the yellow trail. It was pretty steep the way we went. If you go on the yellow trail it’s pretty rocky and steep from the red yellow side. Red trails are a lot easier hike.

I love this section. It is strenuous and you will get a good cardio workout. Trekking poles recommended. Rocky and steep with one steep downhill section with loose gravel. Always take a map and compass with you and know how to use them. I love All Trails pro. I can navigate with no problems. You should also take enough water to drink.

I took the Yellow Loop to the Silver Loop then the Silver Loop section over the mountain. Going over the mountain was the most difficult part of the trail. Both sides are steep with one side very rocky. I do suggest trekking poles for that. It was a great hike though.
