This is a SHARED multi-use trail. Although marked Intermediate, it is extremely easy and for 3.5 miles should take no more than 20 minutes. There are several bridge/overpasses and none of the climbs are to difficult. Please be respectful and stay on the trail, although there are what appear to be off chutes they are actually not.

       Did the full loop around the trail. You have to look for the trail connections due to the camp grounds, but it's there. All total about 8.1 miles.
