    We are an American couple that biked the Brown trail on a February morning. The bike rental is operated by a solo employee in a tiny building and we were the only bikers there that day, so be clear about when you will show up. Rode up gravel trails (saw mtn goat- seriously), thru beautiful forest with DARK tunnels of canopy, and elevated wooden pathway through clearcut timbered slope. Some hills but never very steep, we easily biked with brakes reversed from our usual. Enjoyed lunch at Thyme & Thatch afterwards, in nearby town.
