Nice, exposed in areas so if it’s hot and sunny it can get warm on high side of road. You could run this trail easily. We saw a big elk.

Very nice, easy trail with well maintained path. As others have said, very close to the highway. Still many opportunities to see some wildlife.

Moderate, nice but very near the street...

Trail on the north side of the road better than the south. Be wary of the tunnel if you don't want to eat a bunch of gnats.
