Great and beautiful ride from the views to the flowers and the trees. Trail heads have porta johns and parking. People are courteous and friendly. Challenging places with climbs, roots, rocks. Just awesome!

I'm not much of a hiker but this was a great trail to hike on. There were multiple trails for different comfort levels and the scenery was sweeet. This is a beautiful area.

Close to town and easy to walk to. You do not need a 4 wheel drive to be able to hike and enjoy the mountain scenery. The trails are busy with bikers, but expected that so if you want solitude this is not for you....More
