Very easy. Did this in mid December where it was wet and muddy. Still doable even after some snow fall but had to turn back halfway due to a flooded river with excess mud. Kind of flat, same scenery for miles.
Did the Buck Mountain Loop and added the Perimeter Trail down to the North Falls for about a 20 mile trip. Very relaxed feel in the woods with the mist from a stream. A little muddy and rocky but worth it.
A little Rocky, but all and all a fun experience.
I have biked this trail a few times. I hiked it with my dog last week and up hear the top, the rain turned to snow and we got snowed on for about 2 miles.
Actually took "Buck Mountain Loop" - this was my first longer venture out with my dog (since the main falls trails don't allow dogs) and it was nice. Lots of horses on this trail during the weekend.
