This trail is an easy half mile loop that only has one confusing path where it appears trees have fallen. Easy enough to get through on foot, but not on a bike. In the fall leaves cover the trail making it a guessing game as to where the trail really is in places but you'll get there just fine.

Not a bad short trail that also connects to a trail that goes farther up the road, then the road to the top. One property has goats, so that's always a fun sight. After a good rain the trail follows a temporary larger stream, adding to a small sense of adventure. Too short of a trail, but at least it's woodsy and quiet and not a far drive.

I would like to do this hike but don’t see any place to park a vehicle and the road is a small 2 lane with no shoulders.

not a bad trail at all, fairly steep trail system. this app says it's only .8 miles long but from parking area to top and back was alittle over 4 miles long.

EXTREMELY hard to follow trail. This is mostly because of when I visited. Recent ice storm wreaked havoc on the trail with a lot of downed branches and obstacles. On top of that, there were leaves all over the pathway making it nearly impossible to find your way through. Had to stop many times to get my bearings and figure out my next move. Towards the end of the trail the landowner walked in and apologized for the current condition it was in. He said they would have a crew make it easier to manage in the near future. Very nice fellow. He even suggested a new trail nearby! Looking forward to going back to get the full experience soon.
