I took the Yellow, White, Blue, Red, Blue option from the trail head by marker #242. The terrain is woodland with a few moderate climbs/descents. A nice hike with multiple options and connections to other trails.

Offers a number of possibilities to increase or decrease your mileage on the trail. Connects with the Rocky Hill and Iron Ore trails.

Great hike on a sunny day with reward of lovely lake view. Take blue trail and then hook up with red trail to loop back.

Trail will be nice for snow shoeing, but don't bring dogs. Dogs covered in tiny ticks. Not good.
