The trails are great for a nice run! I was on an hour run and only came across one person and a dog. Very peaceful run. The trails are wide and very easy to run across, up, and down. I took two nice ling runs.

The day would be the best way to go, we opted for just one trip down the alpine slide. Small children have to be over 3 to ride with an adult . And over 48" to ride alone.
