This is a nice, shaded and easy trail to hike. It was not highly trafficked on a Sunday afternoon, and only a handful of bikers passed us. We accidentally came very close to a bear with cubs on the trail about half way, and were forced to turn back the way we came. The Ranger later told us that there is a bear den very close to the trail, so be on the lookout if you decide to hike here. Make sure you know what to do if you encounter bears on a hike! The National Park Service seems like a good source.
