       You have to pay a day use fee to park inside the park. This is a popular trail with horses, and bikes. Lots of rock gardens, and large loose rocks in the trail... keep your momentum! And may be less busy during the week, I went on a Saturday and quite "crowded"..

       Day use fee is $3 per bike if you park down the road at In N Out and ride in. Nice trail to add some cruiser miles and sweet views to a 50 Year ride. A little rocky but it mostly flows well. Maybe I’ve been lucky but I’ve rarely encountered serious crowds on this trail. Nothing like some of the trails on Lemmon, or even TMP, at least once you’re a mile or so out of the park.
