This trail was good. Wasn’t hard at all. Though make sure you watch out for bikes. Every time we went down a trail we ran into about 3 or 4 bikes. So just be careful when doing down the trails.

Other than stretch along highway (loud), it’s a fun trail. Be sure to pay attn to your GPS as their are many interwoven trails (easy to lose planned trail). Avoiding posted private property sign (just one) by staying left when you see it.

No surprise but Loud along the highway. Quite nice on the return. Trail goes through a sign for Private Property.

Nice trail. For the most part it’s very well marked and maintained. Easy enough except for some of the bridges being a bit tricky. A lot of mud from rain this morning and the last few days. Wear sturdy, waterproof boots! The first half of the yellow trail is along the highway so you don’t get too much quiet. As well, the first part of the red trail is near private properties, but not for too long.

Once u get away from the multiple flooded and muddy highway side and of the noise that goes with it all is good.

This is a nice walk through the woods. Make sure to bring a trail map. Most trails are loops fed by one or two access trails. Very easy to get turned around (lost). Trails are well-marked. Little bit of road noise from Route 3. This is a mountain biking course so you will see bikers. I walk this while my son’s biking team runs their work-outs.
