What was supposed to be a easy 2.1 mile hike turned into over 3 miles following the "all trails" map taking us in circles? There are several different trails on this hike to venture on. Luckily, the trail on the left side of the road was a breeze with zero questions on which way to go. As we ventured across the street to the right side thats when thing got a little confusing? We ended up following a trail that took us through the rustic woods? Trees were down and we were crossing boards over swamp areas finally leading us to the back of the fenced housing area? At that point we turned around and re traced our steps taking us to the main trail. I think this trail should of been better marked and if trees were down crossing the main trail, the county should out closed the trail off. Needless to say we made it out of there in one piece however, were puzzled as to the main trail took us to a area that was a dead end?
Tried the trail on the right side of the road, confusing and not well hiked, lots of side trails. It was nice seeing a young guy out there fixing up the muddy part. Defiantly gave him entertainment for the evening trying to get back through the mud in flip flops

The inner short loop is super easy & great for little kids but if you go the longer loop it's got areas where you have to scrabble up hill so not as easy with little ones or if you have lots of gear. The tire swing was missing the tire & it goes out off a slight cliff so only for the "not faint of heart".
