I was hoping to give this trail a higher review, but I cannot because parts of it were so overgrown that I could not see the trail markers, which are very obvious. Also, it has not been well maintained; bridges have rotted and disappeared, baby trees have grown up enough to block the trail, and the field in which one must walk is very tall and thick laden. In short, I had to turn around and go back the other way in this loop and still couldn't complete it. If you are going to attempt this easy hike please where long pants and keep your eyes peeled when the brush starts to get thick. Much of the trail was easy to traverse, but I could not complete the loop because it was so overgrown. :(
