I ride the trail several times a week. It's now closer to 17 miles one way. Last summer (2011) they added another 12 miles to the west side of it, and this year they are adding another several miles of trail. There is so much diversity on this trail! cliffs, forest, desert, tough climbs, incredibly fast downhill, burmed hard turns, and it doesn't quite go right to the lake, but less than a mile off the trail on a gravel road is a super nice lake where the dogs can swim. I take my dogs off-leash on this trail all the time and it's just amazing. Has something for everyone. I started on it as a beginner, but there is some tough stuff if you look for it.
