**Go past the private road sign, past the mailboxes and gates to the horse enclosure and then down a bit is a small grassy parking area.** You’ll follow a moderately worn trail through a wooded area, go down a hill and into a field. (It looks like it opens up to one field right adjacent to the horse enclosure, but you need to go down the hill. Go right and just follow the trail! It goes along the edge of the field all the way to the river and then up a little hill along the horse enclosure. You end up against the boat launch from Fiddler’s Reach Road. Turn around and head back the same way! We went in late March after a mild winter with little snow and there was one spot that was a bit muddy, everything else was dry. I wouldn’t call it a hike, it was a nice walk though! It would be good for families with little ones. The wooded area is probably nice for bird watching and you can see the horses through the trees. We were the only ones there, which was nice. I’d go back! The one negative is a couple trail markers would have been nice. Just one or two. We followed the worn path but I see in the reviews someone else said they went a different way. I don’t know if one of us were wrong or if they were both fine. When we were uncertain it was nice to use the feature of the map within the app tracking where we were on the path and we knew we were going the same way as the map in the app (towards the boat launch).

Very pretty walk, short and easy. Mostly open meadows with lovely views of the river. As a previous reviewer noted, continue past the sign that says "private road," and you will soon see a small grassy parking area on the right, with a vehicle barrier across the trailhead.

First to Review

This is a pleasant and easy trail if you are looking for a quick walk with some really nice views of the river! The trail is not marked and so at first I took a wrong turn and ended up at the nearby boat landing! My hints: the trailhead parking is located on a private road. There’s a big sign that says “private road, turn back” but you actually have to go beyond it and just after it is a slight curve and the trail is on the right. Limited parking, 3 or 4 cars. The first part of the trail is clear, almost a woodsy road that runs along a fenced in field with a horse farm. When you get to the end of this kind of trail entrance you will be in a field. Keep right, go all the way to the river, then hang left. This brings you to the opposite side of the field which is lined with trees and follows the river a bit before bringing you back to the same area you entered the field.
