Easy nearly all level forested hike, good for all experience levels. Wear lots of insect repellent; there were a ton of ticks, mosquitos and spiders.

Did this hike, due to the ease of access from our campsite. Was a very nice and easy hike through the woods with a nice view of the semi secluded pond.

My son and I do this loop with our dog quite often in winter months as they do not allow hunting near this trail. Be careful because in the fall and winter it is easy to lose the trail as the leaves falling cover it up. Never seems to be much traffic in the winter and there are a couple of areas that are pretty steep to navigate with the leaves on the trail. It is marked well but needs a little tending to alert hikers of where the trail is. Overall, we love this loop and the peacefulness that comes with hiking here.

More challenging then TP Lighthouse, no where near as scenic. Worth doing before or after Lighthouse if your looking to tack on mileage with your scenery.

Nice trail, some good small hills. Easy to moderate. Pretty pond views for a short part of trail.
