  • This is a great trail for either hiking or biking; if biking, make sure you go at the right time in the summer season – too early and you’ll hit snow, too late and it may be a bit overgrown to ride comfortably.
  • This is a great hike to backpack to the end and camp; there are several spots to pitch a tent, including one really nice spot with stunning views.
