WATCH OUT FOR MOUNTAIN BIKERS!

Great hike! Not too difficult but definitely need to watch out for hard core mountain bikers! First 1/4 mile not a lot of shade but after that tons of shade which was nice on a warm day. Definitely going again. Maybe this time we'll hike farther. Hiked about 1.5 miles then kids were ready to turn around.

Nice pretty and scenic hike. Not crowded today. Trail was in pretty good shape. Moderate fits this difficulty well. Good length though we cut 1 mile off the back loop by not hiking up snow basin road to find the trail opting to just pick it up lower past the road.

Great moderate hike for families and animals. A lot of the trail is gravel so it's good in the rain. Lovely landscapes in the spring. Perfect for a morning hike.

Did the full loop today, not many people other than near the bottom. The upper sections were muddy, but that's to be expected since it has rained a lot and the snow hasn't been gone long.
