On a clear day there is a nice view up the Lahave River. Trail has little elevation change and would be suitable for a family excursion.

I started this hike at the West end, north of where the bridge construction is. there was a place to park just off the hiway but I drove on the 4x4 path right to the trailhead and there was a place to park there too!
the trail terrain is consistent throughout. lots of turns, and lots of small inclines and declines. lots of shade as the trail is fully forested. i kept a good pace and only stopped to take photos. I got the excercise I was looking for on this hike! it is an excellent workout trail!! :)
at the loop section of the trail you have choices of what loop to hike and which direction to go. choices, even small ones, always add to the enjoyment of any trail! well marked and color coded, so you couldn't get lost even if you wanted to!! there was one place I ventured off trail to investigate something pretty, but the pic didn't do justice so I didn't post it :(
there are a couple nice views but partially blocked by tree growth!
if I was to take my time on this trail I'd want to bring a small mat to sit on!
taking lots of time would make this hike easy for all. but I think it's the kind you WANT to break a sweat on!!
