On a bike, the first down hill is very fast and very very fun! The creek crossing was low and not a problem in September. After that there were 3 grueling hills! It's a good workout, but not the most spectacular scenery. (still pretty though) Lots of inconsiderate hunters passed us at about 40mph because the last 2/3 of the trail is on a commonly used road. I think it took us, whom are in good shape, 2 hours to complete.(Maybe less?) anyway the big horns are great and i can't wait to explore more!
