 Great scenery. Trail ok near top. Gets bad nearer bittom from hikers. They hike up a little then turn around so just lower bliwn out. Expect wide trail and deep footprints in the kitty litter. No point to climb. Wont b fun. Decent trail down, but not the quality trail u get from just bikes using it.
