Reviews

Fun hike or trail run to get your heart beat up. The Stream trail is pretty mellow, super easy, I saw four year olds with their parents on it. The real fun happens on the French trail - lots of steep up and down on hills. I wouldn’t rate this route “advanced.” Stream is beginner and French is intermediate. If you are looking for a good workout, skip the stream trail altogether and out and back on French.
