Easy hike. Minor trail construction. Very muddy in a few sections. Slight trail rerouting which added a few extra hiking yards

Great easy trail. Connects to Green Mtn trail easily but you would have to park cars at both trailheads.

After bearing left at the loop junction we enjoyed a tranquil uphill slope along the ridge On the South side of the small wooded valley. We stopped often to photograph fungi and moss. Looping back on the north side it warmed to 84 as we followed the opposite ridge then descended. We were pleasantly surprised to reach a lovely stream with rocks for sitting midstream and cooling our warm feet. The cold water was rejuvenating and there were decent photo opportunities as i sketched the tiny waterfall and swirling water. This was the best part of the trail..time spent 3 hrs because of the creek.

Nice loop ride for a new MTB rider, especially the western side of the loop. Eastern side was narrow, rocky, slippery, and muddy (heavy rains this week). I made multiple loops in counterclockwise direction to get a good workout. Would definitely do this again.

A short and very easy hike. There's not much of anything to look at, except the beautiful fall colors in early November. the loop took us just under 45 minutes to complete. This would make a good warm-up to some of the better trails in the area!

Perfect for a quick and easy hike with impatient kids away from the rat race.

It was very quiet and peaceful - not difficult nor was it busy. I walked with a local landowner who confirmed he has seen bears on the trail (rarely) but something to be aware of. Good for dogs and kids - the loop is two miles and easy to do a few times. Look for the chimney about a mile and a half, also good access to water for dogs.

Very easy trail, not breathe taking views, but lots of wildlife. We saw a snake slither across the path and were intrigued by the brick fireplace. Does anyone know the history behind it? Would definitely recommend for a leisurely hike for those not feeling super adventures or looking for something less strenuous than other hikes in the area.

Cold and raining but a great hike. The understory is so varied it is interesting. We passed one biker and a family starting out with dog. Rain won't stop us!
