Great easy trail. We hit it on a sunday afternoon and couldnt believe how dew ppl were there. It was a fun and good flowing trail. Very easy, minimal climbs, a few scattered "rock gardens" and a couple of obstacles. But with as easy as the trail is dont be turned away from it, the north and south loops were incredibly fun and leisurely ride. We rode counter clockwise the trail flowed very well.
