Fun hike, minus the gnats and skeeters! Met a bear in the blueberry bushes by Ilgenstein Rock. The trails are well marked and maintained.
The trails are nicely marked but this red infinity loop covers multiple trails - not many views and not too strenuous. You need a map or to use your phone but no maps at the trail head
Awesome! My friends aren't avid outdoorsy people but we also didn't want a basic trail path either. We took the red dotted trail and it brought us up in to different elevations and a more scenic route that we thoroughly enjoyed.
Great woods. Very rocky trails, so wear appropriate shoes. Not too difficult although we didn't have any maps, none at the trail heads at all. You have to keep an eye out for the trail markers or you can get off the trail. We accidentally went off trail, but found our way back quickly. This time of year (late winter) the trees and brushes are obviously bare, no leaves, no greenery, so the trails are harder to determine because everything looks more open. Still very beautiful and nice workout. We ran into quite a few streams and a lake. We had two dogs with us and they had a blast.
