I rode about 5 miles on this trail (and back) in July and it was a great experience. The trail is a little rough in some spots but not a problem for a mountain bike. A road bike might have some problems.
The trestle bridge about half way through the trail has washed out and there is a detour to an adjacent road for about 1/2 mile and then back to the trail.
The many gates are a necessary nuisance but it's easy enough to life your bike over them. I saw no signs indicating that bikes were not allowed and saw several hikers; none of which expressed any objection.
It was a 90 degree day and a quick swim in the river was very refreshing.
I am already planning my next trip on this trail. Great experience! Photos have been submitted - enjoy! Here's a Google Maps link showing the bridge detour:
Navigate the trail virtually until you come to the blue line...or click the "detour link" on the left.
