This hike goes around the outside of the Nathan Lester Park property. The eastern edge of this tract follows the power lines. Hikers may choose a parallel blue trail that stays in the woods. The trail is mostly flat and wooded and comes close to Vinegar Hill Road. Great loop to walk your dog! There are several trails through the middle to shorten the loop. The Nathan Lester House is open Memorial Day - Labor Day for tours. The trails are open year round.
