Nice hike- open (no shade), relatively flat. It’s great for a cloudy or overcast day- and you can tack on a bit of distance and check out the cave!

Good trail, little elevation gain. Still some ice and snow in patches. Parking lot full but saw very few people.

Good trail for mountain biking. I am advanced beginner and I completed it but with a little difficulty. No shade and very dusty but awesome views. Only a few rocky patches on steeper incline but I walked those.

Had a really fun ride today. We went clockwise in the loop. It was 95% downhill after we reached the Boyd Cave area.

easy ride...1 technical spot, make sure you close the gates (2) unless sign says otherwise, access to several caves (Boyd Cave being one of them)...nice ride, only bummer is constant gun fire due to range on China Hat road, otherwise great MTB spot.
