Short, easy trail. Make sure to check out the cemetery!!!

A short trail that goes out and back (it's a loop but a very narrow loop) in some nice woods.

The draw here is variety...nice woods and some open fields. Starting and ending at Kendall Lake is easiest in terms of finding one's way. (You can get to it from the parking lots on Quick Road and the trails are marked but it's a bit more touch and go.) This trail gets away from the roads and that means low traffic noise. It's a good distance and some worthy elevation changes. (The local schools use this trail as their cross country track, ergo the name.)

Short and sweet, but prone to mud. Virtually completely flat. The trail makes a nice add-on to Ledges trail if you just follow the trail down to the Octagon shelter. Very pretty standard walk in the woods.

Very short loop trail. Connects to much nicer Ledges trail. Most interesting thing is the remnants of a circa 1800's cemetary at the trail head.

Nice, short, wooded trail. A very easy walk on a flat path loop through the woods. To get to the trail, park in the lowest parking area (the first driveway on the left after you drive in off of Quick Road. Walk behind the octagon pavilion and all the way across the huge field to the very back. The path breaks into a loop just a short walk from the edge of the field.

Really my kind of trail. Single track and out in the woods. The weather has cooled of to about perfect for hiking.

This is a beautiful hiking trail. I loved the vegetation.

I'm not sure what loop that would be 2.3 miles this refers to. The Haskell Run trail itself is about half a mile, and it connects to the Ledges trail, which is itself 2.2 miles. The Haskell Run trail is nice, if a bit short. There's an old 18th century cemetery full of wildflowers near the trailhead, and the trail has a nice incline to it and takes you through some beautiful vegetation.
