Trail was cool until we encountered a swarm of bees. Happened about 1 mile in not too far after turning left onto McKenny trail. Everyone in our group was stung multiple times. Luckily no allergies. Not sure if it was a nest or what, took off quick back toward the car. Bee careful!

I was going off the mileage (7.9) posted on this app, but I ended up walking 10.2 miles (adjusted for pre-hike walking). Not sure why there is such a huge difference. Other than that debacle, really good trail: I experienced all types of terrain though it was all in moderation. You should try this out if you are nearby.

Nice hike on a sunny day. At the start of the loop, we went left and dealt with the elevation gain up front. Made for a nice downhill hike for most of the remaining 5.5 miles or so. Trail was in good shape mostly.

Very very well-kept trail. Lots of shade with a few open breaks. Only saw three mountain bikers and no one else on a Tuesday morning and afternoon. Very quiet with no car or airplane noise even. Nice even doses of easy uphill, easy downhill, and nice straits. Just a very good trail all the way around. Would definitely come back again. If you follow the directions on the app GPS you end up driving past where the trail crosses the road by a few hundred yards. The actual coordinates are 46.925837 -123.112538.
