Nice variety. Woods, a stream and open fields on this hike. In many parts it's also a horseback riding trail so be forewarned.

Very scenic and not overcrowded like delaware trails

Nice trail, easy to follow! Lots of horses and a few bikers. Just watch out for the horse poo

Absolutely loved the wooded adventure and saw plenty of deer. Unfortunately, the trail has numerous intersections and is not well marked. My dog and I were out for an extra hour because of the lack of a specific route.

Excellently maintained. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because there are sections that are either poorly marked or not marked at all - when multiple trails converge. Otherwise the trail itself and the scenery deserve 5 stars.
