Cost to go hiking is $15. Absolutely ridiculous! Very disappointed.

Left from the Park Ranger station heading south. The trail was well mark and easy to follow. Just after the first bridge there was about 100 feet of muddy trail and lots of water but the trail can easily be followed by going parallel in drier ground until the area is bypassed. Plenty of gypsy moth caterpillars everywhere you look. Minimal wildlife encountered, dead snake near the trail and a deer that was very comfortable around people - staying about 25 feet off the trail as it was passed.

Nice and quiet. I would rate it on the low end of moderate. Soggy in spots, but easily avoided. We took our time. We took 3 hours to complete it. Will definitely do this one again.

Easily marked! I walked the blue to the red trail, definitely a killer hamstring work out!
