An old, unremarkable, road through the woods.
A very easy hike on a wide trail. We encountered three sets of dog walkers and saw signs of a horse. The side trails are quite difficult and used mostly by motorbikes.
A very boring walk. I did this trail just to get out and hike. You never know what you'll like or dislike til you do it. No signs or indicators at all. This trail was only an access trail for emergency vehicles. We hiked about 1-2 miles in to where it forked towards sweet pond. The hike was very easy. The trail is often used by motor bikes with the evidence to show it. I did like the heavily wooded pines and there were hundreds of butterflies. So to recap, I would say Pro: decent wildlife and easy hike, Con: very easy with not much change. Granted there are intersecting trails but if your bored and just want to hike IF your in the area, do this trail.
