I rode this everyday before work! There is a bathroom at the top of the trail and people, horses and bikes are allowed on this double-wide packed trail. This is a great trail for any level just to get some milage in. It's very scenic with 6 back-switch's. Starting from the top you go down hill and down one switch back towards the river. The bridge takes you up another switch back and on a refreshing "catch your breath" path. Up and down a few more and over another bridge you go. Underneath the bridge is a great place to swim, picnic and camp! Up the last two switch backs and you're at the top of**orgeaous water fall; Ousel falls. At the top you can walk around and even climb down into the falls. There are also more single tracks around for more fun!Let me know if you go! I miss it so much! Courtesy of Singletracks.com

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.
