The trail markers go up to 4 miles, but I only got up to 7.5 miles on my pedometer round trip so the math is bad. The trail connections are not well marked, still trying to figure out how this trail was measured at 10 miles when it seems to have ended a the 4 mile marker. Also, not a lot of shade - it was 79 degrees today but on the asphalt it felt like 95. Some parts stuck to my shoes. Last issue, bathrooms - hunted everywhere and finally found ONE port-a-potty, the "nice" restroom in Merriam was locked and inaccessible. As a woman, that's not acceptable to me. I won't use this trail again unless there are NO other choices. Plenty of other trails seem to be more welcoming.
