Easy to moderate. Challenging enough and still able to jog at many points.

I loved this hike although I went off route near the end, but I just kept going with it and was pleasantly surprised. The parts along the stream were especially nice.

HikingGreat!

I’d rate this on the easy side of moderate, but still really enjoyable. There was still a beautiful amount of foliage, even if it is a bit past prime time, and the trail was nice and dry. I found the trails well marked, however, there were a few points I got off track. There are multiple well-managed trails that connect with this one, but aren’t on All Trails. It was easy enough to get back on track though.

Love the pines, a little trouble following in a few spots but the AT app got me right back on track! Not a busy as I expected on a nice Sunday afternoon. I guess there are so many options for routes in this area it keeps everyone spread out.

Mountain bikingGreat!

Been Mountain Biking this for decades. Love Arcadia, and especially love this route. This can easily be expanded for a much longer ride/hike. Kudos to the people doing trail work on this route who put in the bridges.

HikingGreat!

This was the first day of fall and a great day for a hike. As others have noted, going counterclockwise, the trail was pretty easy to follow with GPS. The white markings seemed to be on every trail so we didn't trust them very much. Following this easy loop, we stumbled upon an abandoned campsite with several cabins in disrepair. Further down the trail, we came upon a shelter and picnic area with several picnic tables. The area reminded me of what Sleeping Giant State Park looked like before the tornados wiped out the picnic area and surrounding trees. We had no problems tracking until about 3 quarters of the way through the hike. Then things got dicey as the prescribed trail didn't match up with the surrounding area. We easily figured out how to get back on track, but it involved deviating from our map. This trail is dog and child friendly.
