Decent hike around lake hope area. Shared with mountain bikes but I only saw a few in my whole hike. Lots of ups and downs but no great views. The sandy trail was really overgrown.

The trail is 60% mountain bike trail, but there weren't many bikes on the trail (early May). It was a quiet hike through the forest with plenty of wildlife (deer, beaver, hawks, woodpeckers). My tracker (android) also gave 14.2 miles.
