Beautiful trail! Took us a little over an hour to hike the trail did a little running also. Hardly anyone on trail. We did the black diamond trail and it was very easy to navigate. After a great hike we went to lunch at the inlet cafe. It was a perfect day date :). Enjoy. You will love!

Well maintained trail. A bit more crowded than I would like. Gotta keep an eye out for mountain bikers or they may run you over. We saw some wild life, including deer and a fox.

Nice, frequent elevation changes keep it interesting.
