The posted signs say "No Motorized Vehicles" so I would take that to mean No. However, I have seen them on the trail. Seems most will disengage when approaching you on the trail or when groups are present. As a multi-use trail I could see a good argument for them to be allowed as they become more popular.

E-bikes are fine, I think those signs are to deter motorcycles and dirt bikes if I were to guess. I see E-bikes all the time any trail I’ve ever been on in the last couple of years and I wouldn’t even notice them if it wasn’t for the fat, battery part of the bike! :-)
