Trail seems pretty underrated to me. Nice scenery and very peaceful, very little traffic. Generally a pretty easy walk too. Trail isn’t pristine exactly, but, then agin, it’s a trail, not a highway. Makes it seem more like the genuine article. Also not very well known, which is a definite plus.

This is by no means an easy trail. There are some significant changes in elevation, some especially steep climbs in the clockwise direction, on a pretty rutted and washed out trail. Signage is a little confusing in two spots, first where the loop begins, the again where it joins the road about halfway through. Some very pretty spots but I've yet to see ladyslippers, despite having done this trail when they should be blooming.

Nice scenery. Poorly marked in several places. Milage is misreported and is closer to 8.5 miles. Do Nancytown Loop instead.

Trail is very poorly maintained.

Every Trail is worth at least two stars. God's creations are always a pleasure to view! However, this trail "is nothing to write home about." It's beyond poorly marked. So, if you plan to come and hike this trail I strongly recommend that you have a full battery on your GPS (if you plan to finish it). There's a split in the trail about 2.7m in and it will lead you to the last mile of the loop, almost cutting the hike in half.

Good workout. Lot of uphill the first mile and on the way back up the mountain. Would not call this an easy trail. Lake Russell trail is easier. Definitely use the app to stay on course. There aren't many markers to direct you. P.S. Lot of acorns on the trail today. Some were the stuff of squirrel legend. As big as a squirrel head. Bring some home to your hometown squirrels so they can know the legend is REAL. :)

Terribly marked. As the sun started to go down, we couldn't find our way out. What was suppose to be a 3 hour hike turned into 6 hours. Very disappointed. However, just around the corner is a short, well-marked trail called Nancytown Falls Trail. It isn't listed on ALLTrails...but it's worth seeking out. It's located on a gravel road (probabaly a Forrest Service Rd), but there are only a couple spots to park. Very short hike (approx. 1.0 mi. in and out) with a beautiful waterfall about 0.5 mi. in from the trailhead.

This trail has easy footing most of the way, but be warned, the first one and a half mile is a constant incline. Once you get past that, the main thing you need to worry about is that the trail is not marked well when it is interrupted. (There are several crossings with gravel roads, and, weirdly, a huge open expanse that has been tilled.) This turned our hike from 6.2 miles to 8.9 miles. It was a big difference, given what we were expecting! If trail markers were improved this would be a much more enjoyable experience...

The trail markers need updating badly. The trail was great once you made it to the top of that first climb.. I wound up on a forest service road that dead ended.
