Great trails that are well marked. I would consider yellow to be easy and orange intermediate but I passed many small children on each so it is definitely doable for beginners though they may take longer. Well trafficked on weekends with families and dogs. Also a bike trail. For these reasons I prefer weekdays.

Uncrowded, fairly well-maintained (though some smaller spurs were impossible to find through the leaves). Trails weren’t always as well-marked as they could be.

Decent trail! There were a lot of bugs and sometimes it was a little worrisome dodging the mountain bikers. However the small amount of elevation was nice and the trail was easy to follow. Perfect for a light afternoon walk!

Actually covered a lot of trails between Yellow, White, Orange, and legs of Forbidden drive. Really good day out in the Wiss.

the trail is really great a lot of nature a lot of great scenery the first hill is pretty intense it's long and goes pretty high pretty fast you will have other with hills like it as well overall very good hike they're definitely mountain bikers and joggers and some people with dogs off leash. Keep an eye out for the trail markers because it's easy to get off Trail, I did several times.

A nice route. Just one big hill right at that the beginning. Lots of interesting things to see throughout this hike. Watch out for mountain bikers. They were all very pleasant, but there sure were a lot of them!
