Ran part of this trail and liked it. It’s a good hidden one closer to the road but not very loud early morning.

Didn’t hike too far but a lot of road noise on this section. It runs right along the parkway

Nice undulating trail. A couple muddy spots after the rain and a couple small creek crossings Which are easy. great trail for dogs. went out and back for a total of about 1.7 miles.

My friend and I did this trail one afternoon. We are both young and active, and we did not enjoy this trail! We can only assume it is called mountain to sea because of the frequent elevation changes. We don’t mind steep inclines if there is a rewarding view at the top. However, this hike had continuous inclines followed by downhill treks... closely followed by another steep incline! We saw no views until about 4 miles in when we had to go off the trail to scale rocks to at least make the view worth while before turning around. The view was finally beautiful, but we didn’t even get to see the final overlook because we had to turn around, and therefore felt defeated by the strenuous terrain. Would not recommend!

Simple trail in the woods. Not too hard, not to easy.

Fun, simple trail that is easily accessed from multiple spots. Parking may be limited at times and difficult for vehicles with low clearance. Road noise is a bit of a down side but it's perfect if you want to go for a hike/run and not feel like your completely in the wilderness.

Very noisy with the trail being so close to the highway but other than that good.
