Found that after about 20 miles I lost the blaze after crossing a bridge onto a road. Could turn around and see the reverse blaze to go back but could not find the blaze to go forward. It was somewhere around Milton. Disappointing.

Great hike! Completed in Feb of 2013 in about 6" of snow. We had a large English Mastiff with us which proved to be a challenge at the many fence crossings (can't exactly lift a 190# dog over a barbed wire fence). The shelters were great and the trail is well marked. The scouts have done a great job building solid bridges over the larger streams.

Mostly used by Boy Scouts. Some parts may be over grown at times. Good trail for this area.
