Fantastic! Very well-marked trail; even with bridge out was fun and challenging. Bugs not too bad. Beautiful points near river/creek with benches to rest. We did have to turn around where we came upon an impassable rock cropping...but we may have just lost the trail. A wonderful escape from Covid!!

Hike is beautiful but gets a little confusing. Lots of downed trees look like a waste land. Very buggy. Sometimes I’ve felt a little sketchy there but- we still go back at least once a year.

Nice wooded trail mostly flat with some hills. Nice rest stops with benches. Bridge is out cutting off one trail. Some deep mud spots. Heavy foot traffic due to other trails in the area being closed.

Great trail. A few muddy spots but most had boards or rocks to use to get by.

Hunting season. I’d be sure that your 4-legged companions are wearing blaze orange. Nice walk, plenty variation in terrain. Passed a number of other dog walkers and a fellow along the wetland doing photography with some long glass.
