Good trail, not hard. Has access to the tow path and sandrun
Definently not hard.
It was a nice trail, but I didn't think it warented a "hard" rating.
Really loved seeing the river and wildlife. Made the mistake of going off trail and got lost, but still a great workout!
Great views and lots of wildlife
Nice loop, 1.2 miles long. hiking staffs are helpful
Good and challenging! Trail seemed pretty well maintained and I only saw a little poison ivy in one place.
Great hidden trail. Nice big hill if you're looking to work some leg muscles! Only downer is getting eaten alive by Mosquitos. I went in the evening after it rained but I don't think it would be so bad earlier in the day when it doesn't rain.
