Great trail running! Narrow track in most places with some rocky sections, smooth dirt, sand, etc. Some beautiful birch tree sections too.

Awesome place to train. Saw 2 mountain bikers which would be fun as well, but lots of blind curves so you'd have to be careful ripping this trail.

I like this trail for mountain biking but two challenges exist right now as of May 2017. The "lower-lower" section by whites creek park is really washed away by flooding. You actually will have to walk through a deep rut for about 50 yards right after leaving the park going uphill - but then it gets better. Secondly, about 3 miles up track you hit a construction zone where the trail is closed for construction of a housing development bridge. The detour is not well marked and takes you on construction streets. Keep a sharp eye out to get back on the trail asap.

Very pretty in early spring. Creek was rushing birds were singing. There was a sign indicating closure for flood damage but it was minimal and still very passable.

Don't waste your time. Not scenic,no shade and not worth the trip.

Great! My four year old walked the whole thing. It was actually 4.3 miles exactly so longer than we expected but still great, even in the snow!
