on Leatherman Cave Trail

Definitely a moderate hike. A few challenging rock climbs that had us crab crawling up. Overall, beautiful scenery and cave is definitely a plus. I did some reading up on "The Leatherman" before going. It brought some historical perspective to the journey which I found interesting.

It was a good hike, and not far from home just wish it was longer and tougher... I would go again but only if I did not want to drive to far to go for a hike...

Attempted to use this trail as a family with my 2 kids and hubby, but it was so overgrown we really couldn't even pass through. We drove by the entrance 2 times before we found it. Probably won't come here again.

mountain biking

I love this trail for biking, but the last time I was there, it needed repaving to smooth out the very jarring bumps. Beautiful views.

hiking

Beautiful, peaceful, pristinely maintained and well-marked trail. At many points, all I could hear was nature sounds, which is all too rare on CT trails. I turned around at the 3-mile mark and walked back through a steady rain. A lovely retreat into nature.

trail running

One of my favorite trails. I use the white trail/carriage path loop to walk up to the summit, then I run down. The last part of the loop is back up again. I love that it provides differing levels of intensity, and the views are pretty.
