This loop takes you through some great forest of Hemlocks, Beach, Oak, Sugar, Red Maples, and Birch trees. Along the Howell, Cartwright, and Criss trails you go along many creeks. Like the Flatbrook, Criss, Forked and Parker Brooks, making for a very scenic hike, especially with the Foliage. You will also cross over a wild Trout Stream, the Parker Brook. Along the loop you come to one great viewpoint overlooking Stokes, High Point and the Poconos. Down in the Valleys you also come to old stone foundations from farms that once worked the land. There is a dried-up well along the Cartwright Trail and many springs along the Howell trail. Along the Flatbrook there is an old foundation from a Grist Mill.

Diverse set of biomes covered in this trail, including low land marshes, rivers, rocky inclines, and the Appalachian trail. Unfortunately, route seems to have a few outdated sections where trails don't technically exist anymore. More often than preferred will stumble upon rented property, especially midway through the hike. Expect bushwacking occasionally before reaching "yellow dot" trail toward "swenson" and the AT. GPS will lead you off the trail in later sections of Swenson as well. All together a good hike. Challenging at points but very fulfilling once completed.

lots of changes to this original recording. I would recommend alternatively to hike the blue trail. still a fun outing. if you do follow the original recording, when you get to the hike along the river I would recommend hiking the opposite side (on blue trail) than the app says.

Just hiked half but loved the trail. Not another soul on the trail in 4 hours!

Agree with Kshitish's comments. I got way way off trail a few times - the new 15 mile trail needs to be marked better. The first part of the trail I covered was beautiful, there was some evidence of bear activity however. But once that trail hit the road I completely lost track of where I was supposed to go. It also seems strange to me to choose to use blue dots while there is a blue dot Appalachian trail that connects to this. Don't follow my track!

This trail has no recent uploads here and the new blue trail is 15 miles long unlike the prior uploaded track. We got off trail quite a bit and ended up on the Appalachian backbone trail. We ended up doing a in and out instead of a loop due to that and with significantly less miles, just under 13. The terrain is moderately rugged and while the elevation is not something most regular hikers will worry much about, the combination of miles, changes in elevation and the typical northeast rocky terrain under your feet will make you realize the full 15 miles of this beautiful trail. It can get very lonely as it does not appear to be a very popular trail.
