This was (past tense) a great mountain bike/hiking trail. Unfortunately, it is no longer maintained. If you're mountain biking, plan on carrying your bike more often than riding it. It could be great again. It used to have a great flow but no longer.
The trailhead is just north of the lodge parking lot. There are three loops. The first loop is 0.4 miles long, Loop 2 is 1.75 miles, loop 3 is 4 miles, according to the large map at the trailhead. The loops are connected so you can select how far you want to hike as you hike. The trail and loops are well marked, especially if you follow the directions and take the loops clockwise. I would classify the portion of the trail (loops 1 & 2) we hiked as relatively easy with hills. The terrain is rocky so some of the trail surface is a little rocky and slightly uneven. Lots of trees so it is well shaded. Mountain bikes are allowed on the trail. We hiked during the middle of the week and encountered no other hikers or bikes.
