A 4.1 mile wooded, dirt trail. Features a few cool sights such as an old farm house, ruins of a house from the 1800s, Ridley Creek, etc. A somewhat hilly terrain offers light to moderate exercise. A 4.1 mile wooded, dirt trail with some slightly hilly terrain, which offers a light to moderate level of exercise. The trail is a well-maintained dirt trail that features some interesting and scenic views such as an old farmhouse, downed trees, Ridley Creek, and some old ruins from centuries-old buildings. There's a fair amount of rocks and tree roots on the trail, and in the fall, leaves cover the path so you'll want to be careful and watch where you walk. And the trail intersects and sometimes merges with several other trails and roads in the park. The trail is very well marked, so as long as you keep an eye out for markings, you'll be ok. Overall, a nice, peaceful wooded hike with some cool features to look at that provides a long enough distance and hilly enough terrain to consider it a light-to-moderate workout.

Good hike but shorter and less challenging than the white trail
