My least favorite of the Backus Woods trail system but still a nice hike. This hike comes out of the forest into an old field being restored to its previous natural state. It passes by an old farm pond and then through another field. There is some confusion on one piece of the trail that leads up to a private residence. The back end of the trail re-enters the forest and does offer some nice vistas especially in the fall. Because of the long grass and prairie type field there is a lot of ticks through this piece.
