My fav place for hiking. Tough to get to in winter because of seasonal roads but the best trails and miles of them! Marked and unmarked so be careful or you could easily get lost. Beautiful old forest.

I'd rate this trail Easy to Moderate compared to Breakneck Ridge (Hard) and Mount Hadley (Moderate). The trail is not too steep, and with an even surface throughout. There's many variations that could upgrade it's difficulty to Medium-Hard because of very steep sections but definitely there's no scrambling involved. However, the scenery is beautiful, and I encountered lots of wild life such as deer. Trails are not well marked in several sections so I'd recommend bringing a map or a compass just in case. I'd definitely do it again because of the many variations that it offers and because of it's low traffic (I didn't encounter anyone on my Saturday morning hike)

I loved this place. Great scenery and enough elevation difference to consider it a real hike. I didn't do the loop trail when I was there. Did an out and back one but I found a nice area for pitching a tent a little ways in where there was also a lean to. Altogether I got in about a 7.5 mile hike and I'm looking forward to going back to do the rest.

Well worth the trip. The trails are well maintained and full of character. Fun fall ride today, perfect temp for peddling around here.

I recommend entering the park through Prospect Valley Road, especially if you have a vehicle that's low to the ground.

Climbed today 3/6/14 great hike. Little icy still but great to get out there!!

A cool fall day but a nice hike in the woods!
