My 2 daughters, 2 dogs and I were here this past Tuesday. The trail was was pretty and challenging but there was so much rock that one of my daughters fell several times. And SEED TICKS!!! It is now Friday and I am still trying to get them off of my dogs. I would highly recommend leaving your dogs at home for this one!

Challenging enough and quite beautiful not heavily trafficked is a plus

Definitely go counter clockwise if you want an easier path. When you go clockwise, it starts along the creek on flat ground with a bit or gravel, then you go uphill and downhill and up hill again where there is a lot of large rocks. Good cardio workout. Once you reach the top, there is a bench. Then you walk a little less than a mile on flat dirt and there is another bench, right before it goes back downhill, where there are a few large rocks, but not too bad at all. Beautiful view of the woods. Saw a few deer and my dog loved the path. There is also an off trail path next to the kiln, but I don't think it reaches anywhere. Expected a little more from the creek, as there wasn't a lot of water but it was very clear. All together, it was a good workout but a bit boring for me. Still scenic though, despite the seed ticks. Be careful for them because I got them after my hike here. They look like baby ticks.
