This is a great trail! Beautiful scenery and points of interest. Backcountry sites were very nice. The trail is well marked and in great shape. We hiked in May and had plenty of water sources. Well worth the time to complete!

Easy trail, with some slight ups and downs. Heavily trafficked in June. We took this trail in combination with trails 4, 5, and 8, to make for a good 3-hour walk.

Great trail. Only had a few fellow hikers a long the way. Well maintained. I would highly recommend.

Nicely maintained trail. Would rate at moderate difficulty. Has a large parking lot and there is good signage.

The trail on the app says 5.2 miles. But following the signs it was 6.5. App needs updated. Signs did need some updating, but over all wasn't to bad, pretty weedy as well. So bring your bug spray for sure.

Heads up: this trail is a little closer to 4.0 miles in distance.

I hiked this trail clockwise with my parents (who are in their 70's) and it took us a little over two hours. This trail is relatively easy and could easily be hiked by older adults, with a recommended mobility aid (trekking pole, etc.)

Overall this a great trail for hikers of all skill levels, just watch out for some of those roots!

*side note: we hiked this trail June 25, 2017 and there were several trees down along the trail.
