Super easy, quiet trail. I've literally never come across another person while walking here. I have, however, come across a mother boar and her piglets, and many, many, spider webs housing very large arachnids. If you're fine with dodging those spider webs the meadow and river view at the end of this short walk is perfect for a picnic or reading a good book in the sunshine.
