I loved it! It was a little hard to explore due to having all the kids but still a great time. We're planning a second kid free adventure for the next time.

By the way…the kids loved it too :)

This was a wonderful trail!!!! I really enjoy how maintained it was. It was a little hard to understand where the trail head was because it was not very well marked from the far end of the parking lot and the beginning sections were not clearly marked either but once on the trail it was very nice walk for a Sunday stroll! I will be back again!!!

Nice easy trail. We have completed it several times with our dog, toddlers walking, and baby in the pack. For the loop, we suggest starting on the Low Gap portion and returning on the Mason Ridge Portion. There are several stream/drainage crossings, so it gets muddy if there has been rain.

Although there are fewer horses on this trail than the Grubb loop, it's still pretty pock marked and muddy. Well maintained toward the end and results in terrific campsites on the lake. Can get pretty crowded if you don't get to a site early on the lake.
