This is a beautiful trail that has gorgeous views and an abundance of wildflowers in the spring. I have run the first 4 miles of this trail two separate times. My first run was in April and the trail was clear. In June, however, many places had grass growing over the trail chest-high and it made for an uncomfortable run. I would recommend this as a good trail for a springtime hike.
