Beautiful day for a hike now that SPs are again open for day use. Bruno was ready to go today. Not anything difficult about this trail. It has a lot of shade which will be important come summer. Really enjoy this trail.

Loved it! With the exception of one short section of the trail that was a little but overgrown, it was well maintained and well marked. I was there on a Wednesday and had the trails to myself. Can't wait to go back.

My daughters and I went biking on this trail. The scenery is fantastic. After a recent thunderstorm it was muddy and water logged in multiple spots. This trail actually leads to the River Loop Trail which does make a loop and has a place to view the river from atop a cliff. I would have ridden this trail multiple times if it hadn’t been so muddy.
