Light traffic. No issues. Quite peaceful. Did 6.7 miles starting at Dogwood trailhead. Good markings. No ticks on me but I kept moving....no sitting.

Walked most of the trail during an overcast, chilly day. Easy trail to hike (fairly well marked and no major elevation gains) and run. Not much to see in the winter but probably pretty in the summer.

Pleasant, easy, well-marked. Virtually no elevation change.
