Pleasant trail
Just did this trail today (May 3, 2013) and found it very enjoyable. The trail (blue trail) is very well marked. Everything was just starting to get green and this made for some nice photography. I have posted my photos (made public) at  https://plus.google.com/photos/111556440125679527092/albums/587390013259... There are a few minor hills (10-15 feet) and for the last part of the trail (maybe 1.5 miles) you are on a road shared by cars, but the traffic is light and the speed limit is either 10 or 15 mph.
