This trail combines two great loops that are good in about any season. If other trails are off limits in the deer season, you can get by walking or running this one. It takes you around the classic "Clear Pond" before heading over to the Riverview trail where you finish where you started.

Trail travels near the paved road for long sections before descending toward the pond, so it is not ideal if you are seeking a more immersive experience in the woods. A few interesting inclines and declines, but mostly flat terrain. Some nice, brief views of the pond. Used as cross-country training trail.

Basically good and interesting but some parts can have bugs surrending you.

Great trail in about any weather. It takes about an hour or 1.5 hours to do completely. It offers some nice views of the pond, the forest (great in the fall time), and has just about 5 minutes on the asphalt before you veer back into the forest.
