While not very difficult, this is a fun trail to get out on & just fly. Overall it's about 13 miles and the terrain varies from pine forest, to open meadows, to swamp, to aspen groves. As the description states, Markers 1-8 are the most challenging part of the trail, in particular one section is about a .6 mile climb followed by a sweet .6 mile downhill section. The rest is fairly flat but you can really crank up the speed. Plus there's many places to stop and enjoy the many lakes in the park or the Rifle River.
