This trail is one I use on a regular basis for every day exercise. Many locals use it regularly, especially in the evenings. There are some hills, a little rocky and stumps too. Great for kids and dogs - some nice bridges with easy access to water for the dogs, the trail even drops to the Messalonskee if you want your pup to swim, or if you want to cool off. I consider this an easy trail for myself, but it's a challenge for someone who is a beginner hiker. Such a gem in the community. Very peaceful.
