Nice hike. Not very difficult but long enough for some exercise if you do the full 4 miles or so. The only thing I would warn people about is the inconsiderate dog owners who refuse to leash their dogs.
I saw several people there today some of who had dogs with them. About half of them had their dogs unleashed. You know the situation, your walking with your family and LEASHED dog, when around the corner comes an unleashed dog that of course is going to come right up to your dog sniffing, then the barking starts, then the idiot owner says" she's friendly, don't worry." Meanwhile my wife nervous, kids are a little scared and I'm pissed off. Some people think the rules apply to them i guess. Thanks for screwing up an otherwise great afternoon.

It's a bit treacherous crossing the streams with random planks of unstable wood. I had two of my sons and myself step into the river on a chilly day.

From the parking area, we took the trail on the right side to Carr's pond, returning to the parking lot the same way. The trail was adequately marked and easy, except for a very wet swampy area. We managed to skirt along the edge of the trail there and walk over some downed trees without getting our feet wet. Part of the fun! We also passed the remains of an old car and stone foundation on the way to Carr's pond, which is pristine and beautiful! Out and back, it took about 1 1/2 hours. Would recommend taking a gps, as we needed to refer to it a couple of times on the return.

We are definitely coming back with the canoe. It's a nice hoke in the woods with options for good short hikes or longer ones.
