This trail was OK, but there are some parts where it was too confusing to follow the route and we made some adjustments. I'm glad I had my GPS watch. You also need to walk along the road and cross the road several times where there is no shoulder and poor visibility. Overall, it was a pretty hike and a good length, though I would definitely rate this as easy, not moderate.

This trail passes by beautiful lakes and wetlands made even more lovely by the shimmery ice on a sunny day. Although I didn’t complete the trail in its entirety, I walked enough of it to know it’s pretty and interesting. GPS is essential for navigating this trail as it is part of a network. Make sure you have a fully charged phone and portable battery before you leave home.

This trail is okay. A lot of time crossing the road or little / no shoulder to walk on. Took our dog, plenty of off the leash time. But be very careful near the roads.

HikingBridge out

Eh. I really wanted to like this trail but there was just too much time on roads with little or no shoulder to walk on. most of the bridges were in good shape, but there was one area that was nearly impassible. there was also a lot of zigzagging through part of the route and it was absolutely unclear where to go and when. it's probably a lot better on a mountain bike than hiking.

Good hike to work on footing and a nice easy pace threw the woods and some dank smelling water!

The trail was so poorly marked. There were flooded bridges and closed portions of the trail. We had to cross the main road like 5 times. I would not do this hike again.

This trail was extremely poorly marked. It’s all flat not moderate level hike. I will never hike it again. AllTrails needs to make updates to this map also. There are parts you need to go into the road and it shows that you are in the woods. That is only one of the major errors. I never have a problem with alltrails. This was just a terrible hike in general

Trails were poorly marked, nothing particularly interesting or beautiful along this trail and there was the constant sound of gunfire from the sporting club nearby. Not worth the $5 parking fee
