First part of the trail was very fun but the second half was just walking on wide forest road. Anyway the trail nature is very beautiful, during midweek is almost empty.

I didn't meet up with Leif Erikson but this was the closest thing I can find on the app. I took Fire Road 15 out and did a lollipop Circle - 12 to BPA to Wildwood back to 15. . Took1 hour 50 minutes, and I consider myself pretty slow (I was wearing a medium-weight backpack for training).

Everything is super well-marked so you are not at risk of accidentally turning down the wrong way. Very quiet, saw maybe 10 people total, a few with dogs, a few trail runners.

15 is basically going downhill very gradually except for a couple steep spots. When it meets number 12 it is at the lowest point, and from their number 12 goes up up up until the BPA. BPA is basically a Powerline Road, so in extreme weather or you will either get sunburned or you will get rained on so be prepared. From there Wildwood Trail is quite lovely with just small rolling hills, so it's a quick mile there back to 15 with a few well made sturdy bridges. 15 from is there an uphill on the way home so you get a burst of cardio on your way out.
