We did the blue loop on a hot Saturday afternoon in mid-August. There were a lot of bikers, especially closer to the trail head, so we were having to hop off the trail pretty frequently to let them pass. Everyone was friendly, but I prefer less traffic for a quieter hike. The trails are definitely designed more for biking based on the minimal signage for hikers and the fact that there were very few benches along the way. Despite that, the trails themselves were fun to hike- a nice variety of woods with plenty of hills and a few meadows where we got a reprieve from the bugs. The mosquitoes and gnats were really bad in the wooded sections; Deep Woods OFF didn't cut it. I think it would be more enjoyable when it's less buggy and less crowded.

Not well marked for hikers, but we made it! It had rained the night before and the trail was still in great condition.

Hiked the Blue trail on about April 17th.
because hikers hike opposite direction of bikes the marking is more for the bikes than hikers. poor in the beginning but better at end. this app helps greatly on poorly marked trsils.
lots of bikes but most are decent to share trsil.
lots of good hills and switchbacks.
Did 12 miles.
Good facilities at trail head.
