First, the trail is absolutely beautiful, but the mosquitoes were other worldly. Despite reading previous reviews of the mosquito issue, I thought it wouldn’t be a problem due to our trip taking place during early Fall. However, I was sadly mistaken. I wanted to take more pictures than I posted in this recording, but slowing down below 5 MPH to take a picture led to being swarmed by dozens of mosquitoes within seconds. I literately couldn’t open the camera app on my phone fast enough before I was covered, and that was with a liberal coating of Deep Woods Off from head to toe. I couldn’t imaging going anywhere near the trail on foot during month outside of November through March. It finally got so bad that we had to turn back less than half way through to end the suffering. Perhaps I’ll try this trail again after a good hard freeze.

Very secluded. Much more than we anticipated. We went on July 6 and the mosquitoes were so horrendous we had to turn back after only .3 miles! The mosquitoes were attacking us even with bug spray and they were also all over the dogs. Very beautiful clear trails perfect for dogs, just not during bug season! Might be nice in fall and winter.

Nice trail, but a bit long for my first time out on the bike this year.
