Really well marked, easy elevation, but a little tricky to follow at the end. A mix of woodsy trails with open pastures. Would highly recommend!

A very nice and relaxing hike. Many interesting rock croppings, wild herb plants, meadows and insects.

This is a beautiful place with various topography - swamp, streams, forest, open space, even a farm. It is also beautifully marked. I had one very big problem though. We intended to follow the Blue Loop trail and ended up on the longer, straight blue trail. I wrote to GOSHA about it and I was advised that to keep on the blue trail LOOP, you have to look for the area right after the farm where it turns left. I think it would have been a lot easier to have flagged the blue loop and the blue trail with different colors. We just followed the blue marks but Instead of a casual walk we ended up hiking from Lambtown Road all the way to Route 184, then of course had to double back.

Nice flat. Bugs are starting to come out. Part of the blue trail is on Lambtown road. Very clearly marked. Nice walk.

Today was just a pleasant and sunny day. The trail is very well marked with very nice views of meadows, mountain laurels. Spotted a barred owl in the tree. Many rocky outcroppings and vernal ponds. Easy walk, for kids.

Great for children. Easy walk around the edge of the pond. There is some water, but simple to navigate.

Lots of trails to choose from. so many one could get lost, not that I did just saying. Somehow I ended up on a trail that had blue and white tags. Thought I'd never find civilization again. but a very fun journey!

Great scenic trail. Options along the way to lengthen your hike. Great mixture of scenery to take in ranging from rolling farmland, to wooded forest. Water features throughout including a large pond. Trail is very well marked and also dry.
