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.
