The trail was slightly rocky, but an easy hike/trail run for myself and my miniature Schnauzer. If you bring your dog, there are stickers and needles on the trail, so I’d only recommend bringing short haired breeds. There was nothing of note to see on the trail, but it does connect to old Gorman trail if you’d like to get to the falls. There is a bench about mid way through to stop for a rest if you so need. No restrooms at this trail. No hydration stations. The summers can get extremely hot so bring 1 liter of water per person per hour you will be out. You may encounter wildlife, trail info warns of big cats and I heard wild boar. It was a decent however uneventful trail experience.

Low value if you are only doing the loop on foot (if that was the only thing you could do here I would have rated it lower). It is a decent 'warm up' lap for mountain bike riders as well as a central hub connecting to other trails.

Easy hike, becomes more rocky around the head of Dogleg Canyon.
