Snow is a bit iced over in some parts but still a beautiful snow dusted place to hike

It is crazy the amount of trees down from here from the recent storm. That said, they are doing a great job of at least clearing the trail. There were some cool rock formations, stone walls, and a cave my kids enjoyed. An overall nice walk through the woods.

I would rate this trail as easy. It was very buggy. It’s a straight out and back trip and it is not very stressful. If it wasn’t for the bugs it would have been a pleasant walk in the woods

This trail had a lot to offer with a very beautiful setting. While this was a down and back trail, it was also very easy to turn into a loop taking the red trail up and the white trail back. In fact the two trails intersect in a couple of places. The small brook was nice to look at and the trail starts and ends with a small pond. I will definitely return.

Great out and back trail for all ages! A few ups and downs but nothing major. Headed out for an 830 hike during COVID and did not see 1 other person along the way or even another car in the parking lot. Saw a ton of wildlife from birds to deer, frogs, snakes and chipmunks. Multiple trails in this area so doing a longer hike is always an option. Will definitely be back!

This was a great hike! My friend and I went on the white trail and it was really nice. We did see some snakes but overall this hike was amazing!

The red trail gets muddy since it’s by the creek

Fantastic! Challenging for me as a somewhat beginning biker but nothing too crazy. Lots of up and down. You feel like you are very far away from everything. Also not very heavily trafficked. Well marked. Some off leash dogs but I don’t mind. My dogs loved this trail. Just beautiful.
