Trust the Blazers even though they're not always clear. It's a decent walk nice exercise not much to look at.

As others have commented on, some of the stream crossings are a little bit sloppy and the bridges, if you can call them that, are not maintained in all places. Near the beginning, there is an outflow coming from a residential areas that looks like sewage and it is rather unpleasant. That said, the walk itself is relatively pleasant otherwise and the elevation changes are not significant and barely noticeable really.

This is a nice woodsy trail. it was very muddy and wet though this time to year and because of recent rain. Therr are a lot of little streams and some of the foot bridges were blown out or non existent. It was a challenge to get through these parts. I tried to do the whole orange loop but actually ran into a black bear half way through and turned around and ran back. Beware of bears!

Orange blazes have a lot of little streams and brooks to cross. Bigger crossings have decent foot bridges and smaller ones are pretty easily traversed with careful footing and well placed rocks. Medium streams were a little harder to cross, as the foot bridges were falling apart. Made for some fun obstacles, though!

Too many people making their own side paths. Respect people’s property lines!!!!! Keep your dogs leashed like the rules.

Narrow trails that are t very clearly marked. Sections are poorly maintained with several areas that need extensive repairs. Marked as a beginner trail (easy) with some more intermediate areas that are technical and require practice to clear. Trails are very choppy with little area of flowing trails. Lots of uphill covered in loose stone and roots. No great, but not horrible.
