Q: Went out today on MLK day and it was cold so I didn't see ANYONE else on the trail which was nice. My question is how crowded IS it usually? Roads were pretty narrow and would hate to have to deal with alot of traffic coming the other way? My guess is winter is less crowded, spring maybe a little crazy?
