Ok trail, the eastern/first half is nice with a variety of landscapes. It was however Boggy and the ATVs that go through there have made heavy ruts. No real view points throughout but some nice marshes. The western/second half is a dirt road used by ATVs and maybe some trucks. The bugs were bad on our hike, so bring some good bug spray with you!

First section of the trail is definitely a bit muddy in sections; tons of deer flies (poor dog had about 50 circling her the whole way) middle section is quite nice with rock parts and moss covered rock; last section is snowmobile/atv track(keep an eye out for them!) and the part where you have to walk on the side of the highway can be a bit unnerving. Nice spot, however! Bring the bug spray!!

Gave the dogs a nice quiet walk, the trail was easily walkable with just a few slightly muddy patches. Wear decent shoes and long pants and perhaps a little bug spray. We plan to come back, through all the seasons.

Just Terrible! swamp-bog

You have to dismount to trailbalze around huge muddy pits every 10ft. This is not a bike trail.
It's fine if you want to hike, but definitely not a mountain bike trail.

the DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME IF YOU PLAN TO RIDE YOUR BIKE!
