Pleasant forest trail with a few good views and just enough elevation change to keep it interesting.

This is a very popular route for trail runners as well as hikers. In July there is the forest frolic race on this Figure 8 Loop. About 160 Runners took part in this race in 2017.

although one mile of this 4.2 mile Loop is on a seasonal Road 75% of it is in the woods. there has been a recent reroute to eliminate a muddy section. for those wishing to avoid most of the seasonal Road the Kuzia Cutoff can be taken to create a 3.1 mile Loop.

this was a beautiful trail however I would say its easy. most of the way you follow an old road and for a little bit you follow an actual trail. beautiful hike though

Great trail, interesting terrain, well-marked but helpful to have a map because it starts and ends on the FLT, so the second half isn't marked as a separate trail.

Did this hike just after Christmas. There were about 12 inches of snow on the ground. I used snowshoes with pretty decent teeth. It was a great hike. Lots of water to cross, had to remove snowshoes a couple times because the stream was too wide to jump over. Trail comes up behind chair two of Greek Peak ski resort. View was very pretty when you come out under the power lines. Well marked where it gets a bit tricky. Very enjoyable.

I parked in the grassy area on the corner of Odell and Bladwin rd. And the took the trail beginning with the wooden bridge on Odell rd. (There is no trailhead sign from what I saw). Then just follow the white markings. The first half of the trail was beautiful! Through the woods and very well marked, when you come out of the woods at the top the view is very pretty! I was not a huge fan of walking the rest of the trail primarily on exposed gravel road (and neither was my pup). Also of note, the trail markers change from white paint to orange paint by the electrical towers. I thought I was lost because I noticed no more white stripes, so I took a different way and luckily found someone who pointed me in the right direction. They said that following the towers would also have brought me to the right place.

This is NOT A trail. this is a seasonal road that is a loop. be prepared for some mud! was definitely disappointed when I got here to find out its not a trail at all. however if you follow the road you will find a fingerlakes trail.

Walked this trail this afternoon combined with Virgil Mt. Area Loop for a 9.1 miles figure 8 hike. Beautiful view of the Valley from "Stone Pile Junction" and an overall nice trail even if muddy at times. Conditions were perfect for a late fall hike with temperature in the mid to high 40s and blue, sunny sky!
