Mountain bikes are not recommended for this trail, although using it as a connector to Twisted Pine and High Roller Trails is OK. Mountain Bikes are permitted, but many of the switchbacks are too tight for bikes. $7- State park fee.

When entering the trail, I suggest using the trail to the right and do the loop counter- clockwise. Take your time. Many great views along the way. I considered elevation change moderate to hard.

this was a fantastic hike. did it in about an hour and a half. the elevation gain ks not too severe. Trail is a bit rocky. There were so many amazing view points to stop and look at. i would recommend this to anyone looking for an easy day hike.
