One of my favorite hiking spots if you just wanna get outdoors. Lots of friendly dogs out there. There are a few spots that might be moderate, but overall pretty easy. Bring a simple bug net for your face in the warmer months, just in case. I’ve been swarmed real bad by gnats & mosquitoes on early a.m. hikes.

We got confused with the blue markings that are also used to mark the rails to trails area lol new hikers here, other than that... beautiful place to hike!

Very nice walk in the woods. I'm not sure if it should be posted as moderate.

A pleasant 2.6 mile clockwise loop through the Belding Wildlife Management Area starting on the north side of Valley Falls Road on the blue blazed Shenipsit Trail, and parking in the Valley Falls Park lot. Trail heads north crossing Bolton Rd, then westerly to a small pond before turning northerly again and eventually looping back easterly joining the yellow blazed Belding Path trail then south to rejoin the blue blazed Shenipsit. Much of this hike parallels the Tankerhoosen River which meanders along in the most tranquil of fashions. An easy to moderate hike and a strong recommend.
