Painter Ridge is a short loop trail with a figure 8 pattern and additional lead-in spurs. Terrain is fairly rocky and has some moderately steep grades, but nothing technical. While you can hike it, the trail was designed with mountain bikes in mind. Other reviewers noted presence of odd "benches" - well those are obstacles for the bikes. We hiked this on a 90 degree day with fairly low humidity, and teh shade of teh surrounding forest helped keep the sweat to a minimum. The painter Ridge trail makes for a nice hour diversion on foot if you are already in the vicinity. I'll bring my mountain bike next time and give it a go that way!
