This is my favorite walking trail in the area. I have done it many times. It is even beautiful in the rain.
However, with it's ease, also comes many unleashed dogs. Many, Many. And not sticking close to their owners either, which is frightening when you come upon them loose.

This trail starts at fox farm and leads to gurney lane, it's a beautiful trail with a couple hills, if running it it's a little difficult but definitely give it a go, very relaxing! It's also a very well built area with a few bridges!

Nice easy trail, wide and easy walking. My only gripe was where All Trails directs you to park: in the Courthouse parking lot so that you have to walk over Rt 87 on a busy road. Not very pleasant or safe. There is designated Rush Pond parking right where the trail starts: on the WEST side of Rt 87. See photo of trail map. There's also parking at the other end of the trail, off Aviation Rd on Fox Farm Rd. Otherwise, there was some road noise at times, but mostly quiet. It was a welcomed change from the rigors of Mt Buck and Mt Black. We needed an easy one.
