dogs on leash
This is a fun trail during the summer and spring, and is even a pretty decent night hike, but it is by far at its best when covered in snow. A fairly easy hike year round, but be aware that down trees are not uncommon, particularly near the trail heads and may occlude the path.
This was a pretty easy hike. I brought my dog, and even had her off leash for about five minutes with no problems at all. Light traffic when I was there. Due to the weather the trail is now very muddy. I highly recommend boots of some sort. The view was nice, but I'm sure it is much more enjoyable in the summer or with snow. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a good time without the pressure of a long hike. I spent approximately 1.5 hours here.
I absolutely loved this trail. You went through dense foliage, came to clearings that overlooked farmland, and had a gorgeous view of the valley at the top of your hike. Plus there are new benches along the way to sit and take in the views!
The hike itself wasn't hard, it was a perfect way to get outside and get some fresh air in the middle of the day!
