Walking

Parked on the side of the road across from the trail head, plenty of shoulder. We went just before dusk and some of the blue blazes weren't easy to see in the dimming light. The trail is covered over with lots of leaves and pine needles in places, so pay attention to the blue blazes and the small white signs to keep to the trail. The trail is meandering with lots of up/down dips and tree roots along the way, so watch your step. Overall a very pretty walk in the woods.

Tried mountain biking and it was extremely challenging. The mud and uneven terrain was only for hiking and even that was difficult.

this has been my dog walking grounds for a couple years now, as well as my childhood woods. Excited to see some trails put in. You cant go wrong with an apple orchard right next to the trail!

First to Review

A wonderful walk through thick forest next to the Randall Orchards. Be sure to buy to apples in the fall. The trail meanders over uneven ground and marked with blue blazes and a few trail signs. Should be a good snowshoe hike in the winter and will have to return after a good snowfall. More trails are expected in 2019 and 2020.
