Flat, kinda boring, but good for a quick jog or if you'd rather walk in nature vs. your neighborhood. The trail is great for bikers and continues well past what is shown here. Try the hiking trails that are off of this trail. The white trail to the yellow to the teal leads to a great view and is just about 2 miles RT

Very flat until the turn onto the Iron Mine Trail. Then there are some moments of steepness but nothing all that severe. The flat section gets a decent amount of mountain bikers. But the Iron Mine Trail portion was as quiet as can be.
