Easy trail to follow as it was well marked. It was moderate and had some rocky ground as well as smoother. We saw deer, chipmunks and toads.

Short but can be connected to other trails at the lake for a longer hike. Few geocaches along the way. Nearby Deep Creek Lake as well as a discovery center and bird aviary. My daughter and I did this in the winter in moderate snow cover.
