I have one word only --Beautiful! We rented the bikes and they are basic bikes. No fancy gear shifters. We asked for baskets to carry our cameras around and took tons of pictures. I think we were lucky enough to get a great family shot for our Christmas cards this year. Fall is just starting...so it looks. There are a few red patches so if you go after the 22nd of October, you might get better color than we did. We will certainly go back next time we're in the area. Also, if you do the bikes, the outbound trip is a little up hill, but way back is mostly down hill. I suggest you budget about 4 hours, if you're like us and take pictures at most of the spots.
