Mostly level loop trail located in the Big South Fork area. This trail slowly meanders through some mixed pine and hardwood forest with a historical farm located on the far end of the loop. This trail also intersects several other trails used for biking as well as horseback riding. There is a visitor's center and campground located very nearby as well.
1st part easy, back half near rocks, not too bad. Saw copperhead!
This is a great trail for kids and dogs. We use this a hike for Cub Scouts, either just as a nice hike or for a Leave No Trace activity.
A short way in from the parking lot you can go right or left. We went right and the trail was blocked off with caution tape after a mile or so. We backtracked and took the left fork. Steep steps/ladder were difficult but doable for our dogs. Headed back to the parking lot after a half mile or so. Didn't get to the farm unfortunately.
Easy trail, follow well used trail. Had nice lunch on front porch.
Decent loop. Trail is mostly level, the farm at the far end was very interesting, and the horses there were friendly. However, there is nothing especially spectacular to see or experience here compared to many of the other trails in the area. I would recommend this trail to anyone who is looking for an easy trail walk located close to the main visitor center for Big South Fork.
