Nicely groomed trails through deep wooded area and along a couple ponds. Trails at some points are a little steep and go along a several rock walls. Trails marked White, Red and Blue that interconnect with unmarked fire trails that are extensive and lead to a gorge and waterfall. Approx. 250 acre parcel ideal for mountain biking, hiking, walking the dog and snow-shoeing. Most trails are clearly marked, but they do end and continue on as unmarked fire trials and along power-lines. Watch out for ATV riders. Trails at some points are a little steep and go along and through several rock walls. Trails marked White, Red and Blue are looped. But the White trail interconnect with unmarked fire trails that are extensive and lead to a gorge and waterfall area off trail in rough terrain.

Walked around Haines Pond. Nice short walk, beautiful view of the pond. Walk back goes along and on the old train tracks, which is a bit awkward to walk on.

Was nearly run down by the local kids on motorcycles. My daughter was so scared she refuses to go back.

Sort of creepy given the press anoint sex acts in the summer of 2016 not maintained well and truly more of a mountain bike trail.

Took white-red-blue east and white trail back. Easy terrain, white trail is flat, great for running. Nice view of the lake through the bare trees. Short run, but enjoyed it.

Mountain bikers paradise. Lots of thin trails obviously used by bikers meander throughout. The main trails need maintenance and downed trees cleared. Dogs off leash is huge plus with 2 spots for him to swim. Otherwise, hikers can do better.

Went up to Farrington's Pond and got a bit lost following the biking trail. Easy hike, not too much variety for hikers up there. Will try the white trail along the lake next time.
