Wonderful trail to take your energetic pup for a long walk he’s wiped. Beautiful flowers there are a lot of mountain bikers so if you do take your dog off leash make sure the pups well behaved, we didn’t have any issues. Wasn’t too hard but was a lot longer than the expected 8.1 miles. Not good peak views during summer but I bet you will be rewarded with views during winter or end off fall when the leaves are stripped. The plus not too many bugs but I deeted the crap out of life. Not a well marked trail with lots of trail branches which was not confusing if you have a map. I love all the trail options which allow for creative hiking and multiple uses of the switchbacks. Would 100% do it again!
