Pretty cool trail for jogging, fat biking, although you may run into hunters as I did.

this was a gorgeous rainy day hike, although the mud was a challenge. there was not a lot of people, but there are plenty of ways to get lost on this trail so keep that in mind.

Very muddy this time of year but it wasn’t busy so the dog could be off the leash most of the way. Definitely could get lost, there were many trails that veered off the main one. Overall ok though because of the beautiful view of the mountains.

Great winter hike. Features a creek, beautiful mountain vistas, spruce and birch forest, as well as open hayfields. Did from Plumley to Maud just one way. About 3 miles. Trekked in snow machine tracks most of way. Wildlife included one bull moose on road by Trailhead.
