Nice little piece of wilderness. Its a shame that more of it couldn't have been rescued from the developers. Really noisy however due to plane traffic , automotive traffice to the east and barking dogs from the residental neighborhood on the north side. I was surprised at the number of people in the more rugged portions of the trail.

Its a nice bit of hiking and it has a few spots in it that will make your legs burn. The lack of solitude is a real turn off for me however.
