Trail was ok. This is more of a walking road next to a creek, with lots of bikers. Look forward to exploring some of the other trails.

Trail is ok. Not much diversity. Flat, wide gravel path thats always full of people. Bikers constantly flying past you. A good path for a stroll, but not really a hiking path. Hike the trails on the eastern side for more rugged terrain and less people.

Some fairly rocky parts which I enjoyed on my mountain bike. My two issues with this trail were the large mounds of horse shit and the amount of trash near the parking lots closer to Lincoln Dr. Next time I’ll probably only do the first half of the trail starting from W Northwestern Ave.

We took a new loop and the Wises Hill Rd connection does not exist. You can see where we doubled back a few times since we thought we just missed the turn. Lovely trail regardless.
