Easy hike for anyone with some muddy spots that can be avoided by staying in the edge of the trail. Found some newish campsites there as well near the water that would be nice when the weather is warmer.

Wonderful hike, some parts get pretty low and can be pretty muddy so be prepared. I wasn’t and now have two wet socks and shoes.

HikingGreat!

Nice, easy walk the whole time—very flat. Lots of beautiful views! We saw osprey, snakes, a turtle, deer, and more! The informational signs were nice and there is a random slave house exhibit that looks like an abandoned building, definitely check it out!

It was a great trail overall - we enjoyed walking to the historic church before starting the hike and finding other historic buildings along the way however BEWARE, when we came home we found 10+ ticks on our dogs and on us.

easy to light moderate for walking and a good stretch. Bikes would have to deal with tree roots but mostly bike-able..

Very poorly marked trail but easily navigated with the app. Lots of fun on a little beach about halfway.

The trail had rocks and trees in the trail a bit, and the rain made it muddy. The trail was beautiful and had plenty of shade. Definitely recommend.

First to Review

We enjoyed hiking this trail. The views of the woods and water are beautiful. There are, maybe, a half dozen benches along the way and several small bridges. Since we hiked on a warmish winter day, the ground was fairly soft with stretches of the low areas extremely muddy. We encountered several large blown down trees across the trail, but they weren’t difficult to get over. Other than the muddy stretches, the trail, which is amply marked with blue painted roots and rocks, is well worth hiking.
