The trails are well done, with a combination of dirt and gravel that makes for easy walking. The difficulty comes in the elevation changes on some portions but nothing too bad. Plenty of plant diversity. We saw some prickly pears putting out fruit, which was neat, and the flowers were starting to appear. Recent rain made for mud on some portions but the good trail bed limited the problems here. Solitude was less than usual because we walked during an organized event (www.ava.org); usually there are few people on the trails. There are a lot of trails and plenty of distance.
