This was a great trail/hike! The fall colors were beautiful, huge rock formations, uphills, downhills, small creek crossings, and several more connecting trails to explore. My dogs and I will come back again for sure!

Very technical mountain bike trails. Built by local riders for hikers and riders. Lots of great rock features and most fallen trees are left in place. Can ride up to 12 miles if you can find the tunnel under Interstate 78 and include the Cistern Park trail system.

It's a really scenic hike with enough rocky and narrow parts to make it challenging in a fun way. There isn't a ton of things to look at, but there's a few large rocks about halfway thought that are fun to climb or at least sit on for a break. There's also a stream with a wooden bridge over which I found kind of neat. The markings were easy to follow despite the orange trail crossing paths with other trails.
