Very overgrown. The recent rain has made it pretty water slogged. The house is very spooky and unkempt. We didn't even stop there for the lunch we brought but opted to just go back to the car and eat. I hope it gets more maintenance. It's in a great spot.
Nice trail. There are some self guided civil war history notes along the way. You will also see some trenches. Trail gets very wet and muddy during rainy periods and can be impassable. I suggest going when there hasn't been much rain. Parking is very limited also. Maybe two cars at a time but you shouldn't worry too much about it. It's a fairly new trail and it's not very known.
