Great trail. Our four year old son navigated it just perfectly. Lots of rocks and roots to climb over which will keep a kid's interest in climbing. He didn't noticed how high we were getting until we reached the top. Plenty of great photo ops as well with all of the moss covered boulders. The trail is marked very well with yellow dots and gives you the opportunity to chose different options in a couple of spots. We will be returning soon.
Love this hike, looking forward to doing the others.
Fun time with family. We saw a family of deer and one squirrel. There is a play ground and a beach. It was a lot rocky. would not do it with a 5 year old.
From the bridge near the beach. Elevations range from 900 to 1100 feet. Trail leads past Oriskany Sandstone outcropping on Warm Springs Ridge, Indian Run. Pine and mixed hardwood trees, laurel, flowering shrubs and wildflowers in season. I did this one in October so the flowers were long gone but it was still beautiful.
