Not much to this trail at all. The “trail” is a sand road that goes through the Nanticoke Wildlife Area. There’s woods on either side of the toad but nothing else. Unless you feel like walking a sand road, I’d skip this one. Not really sure why it’s even listed on here.

It was okay. Not if you were looking for a nice trail, but okay if you just want to get out in the woods.

Like James said, it is not really hiker friendly. Make sure you are prepared to navigate.

Hiking

This is an un-kept hunting area that has markings for deer stands, not a hiking area at all.
