We walked this trail on a beautiful fall day. The trail was very flat and easy but parking was very limited at trail head. Trail is shared with motor bikes and ATVs

Easy flat trail, rocky surface wear good shoes. Wide pathway with scenic stop by Deering Pond.. many off shoot path trails to investigate. Bring own trash/ dog poop bags no trash bins available . Short walk from Hanson ridge to Deering Pond, can walk in kayaks.

Very easy walk for most. If you have a good eye there are even a few small paths off of this one but they’re not marked or maintained.

This is a railroad bed converted to a dirt road. Easy to travel on by many forms of transportation.
