This is a good for trail running, hunting, fishing. Great area for trail running when hunting is not in season! Also there is a great pond for fishing and having a picnic. The trail is relatively flat and doesn't have many roots which make it great for trail running, or just a walk in the woods. You start in a pine wooded area--walking on needles, then venture through other forested areas with diverse ecosystems. A lot of these areas are actively being cut back as you will see. The next area is a water one with a creek and waterfowl. The pond makes a great picnic area to fish and have a bbq. Be sure to sign the hiking log before and after your hike.

lots of long, easy trails. The markers are sparse and can be confusing.

There are a few trails on this marked area! The two I saw were the Plantation Trail Brown Blazes and the Swamp Trail Green Blazes. The former is 2.5 miles and the latter is 2 miles. I hiked the Brown Blazes today. It was a nice, quiet trail. They seem well kept. It's a bit hilly, I felt my ears pop at the top!

My only small complaint is that the trail isn't well marked at 2 or 3 junctions. I have a good sense of direction, so it was no problem to figure out where to go. Someone less experienced could also use w compass or googlemaps/alltrails to figure out where they need to go. I will be back!
