Steep, initially yes. The steps and ropes help in some places. The view from pill box 1 is beautiful. We tried to take the loop at the top, but couldn't find the turn from the road - it's confusing at the junction of 3 roads - so came back the same way. (Some blazes mark a side trail the used by mountain bikers.) It was pleasant nonetheless. Once back by the beginning of the road found the other end of the loop, but it's obscure. Use the map on this site to keep from going off trail. It began to rain as we began our downhill return. The mud, rocks and roots get slippery fast with very little moisture. A walking stick might have saved me from my fall. Not a flip-flop hike although there were plenty of people in them.

Trail is very pretty with some cool trees. There is a neat bunker at the top that you can walk in. The trail is not marked well and I ended up taking a different trail for a while.

Just finished this hike. It's VERY steep and slippery from the mud so take a trekking pole or stick if you have one. Use the rocks to stop your feet from sliding and hold on to the trees that line the trail for balance and to help you lift yourself up. You'll need your hands so be sure to take your belongings in a backpack or leave them in your car. Once pass the steep muddy stretch you'll see a picnic table that has a view of the beach. Rest here if you need to but from that point you're only a few minutes from the Pillbox. The trail splits off to the right which I didn't venture off to since no other hikers were going that way. The view from the Pillbox is nice and it's super breezy up there. I'd recommend doing this hike with at least one other person because you may need to help each other on the muddy sections. Overall it's a great hike for beginners. I'd definitely do it again.

The hiking trail wasn’t clearly marked and I don’t feel like I got in the full 9+ miles, but still a great area to trek around. The whole area is a network of walking/biking/atv trails.

It’s mostly woods and bike trails, so unfortunately no epic views, but I think it’d make for a great nature walk/zen session. The only steep/difficult areas (for hiking) are the entrance/exit and the specifically biking areas, so strongly recommend for those who are looking to get into/new to hiking.

Seems like a great place to take the dogs.
