This is almost exclusively a biking trail. We hiked it counter to the bike flow, which I strongly recommend. It requires keeping an eye out for bikers and being ready to step aside, but better than always looking over your shoulder. We enjoyed getting a better sense of the biking experience which we hadn’t seen before, but it doesn’t make for a peaceful communing with nature. We cut the loop in half to total ten miles of hiking and involved a 1/3 mike walk on the side of the road (not a problem, wide shoulders) to get to the other side of the loop. It was a nice leisurely end to our week of more strenuous hiking but there are definitely other exclusively hiking trails around the area that will rock your socks more than this one.
