      Did this trail with my 8yo yesterday. We were both on rigid single speeds. The trail is fun and pretty, although there are some sketch sections. Some parts of the trail are very narrow, with around a 5 to 10 foot drop on the side. I kept smacking my shoe and pedals into rocks coming out of these sections. Another thing to note is the overgrown thorn bushes. Basically, there are some parts of trail where you're squeezing through lush thorn bushes. My handlebars were basically plowing through the rose bushes on both sides. Problem was my hands on the bars getting shredded by the thorns. I let go of the bars out of pain and almost ate it coming out. The trail is pretty. I took lots of pictures. It even has a feature (balance beam). No shade past the beginning or the very end. There isn't much climbing either, just small ups and downs here and there. My 8yo did a lot of walking, with me carrying his bike. He almost slid down the sketch sections a few times just hiking.
