SAFETY WARNING: this trail is located 5 miles from birdseye trail in birdseye. This trail has no mile markers and doesnt lisy the distance at the start either. it is 3 times the distance 11.8 miles. Most importantly this trail is not listed in google maps, whereas birdseye trail in birdseye that is 12 miles long and unmarked IS. I dont know what ridiculous oversight allowed this to happen but any experienced hiker knows this is extremely dangerous to a non experienced hiker. the trail being rated as "easy" , this should certainly be noted. This is a disgrace. I almost died as the sun was going down and there are bobcats in the area and i had no extra water or food beyond the 2 bottles i brought and an apple. Found out i can call 911 on satellite.

Not a difficult hike. Crosses with dirt roads. Good to be outdoors.

A gentle trail, mostly packed gravel, but certainly has areas without it. The low hills, winding curves, a few deer and a nice gravel road or two makes for an enjoyable trail run.

I followed horseshoe marks in the mud, but otherwise, not marked enough to follow without doubt. Crossed an overflowing rapid creek on a huge sycamore tree... and was thrilled for the challenge. Early spring 2016

This is a beautiful trail to ride on horseback. I've been a few times. Easy trail with lots of room to Trot or Canter!

One of my favorite loops. Lots of historic sites along the way and overall nice terrain.

Hiked the whole 11 mile loop today. Very nice trail. Got caught in a thunderstorm at mile 9. Great hike.
