Description
Waypoints (0)

This is a 5 mile loop in Lead Mine Conservation Area. Some sections can be pretty muddy when it's wet. Park at 10 Shatuck Road. Unfortunately, only a portion of one lake remains. Two out of the three bodies of water are just fields of grass at the moment.

*Did not follow route* Decided to try our own slightly similar loop but several of the trails on the map were not actually there so we had the double back a couple times. Nonetheless had a good time! Most of the trails were well established and easy to follow.

Hike this trail in the summertime and 90° temperatures. Found it really enjoyable and 20° temperatures and 10 inches of snow.

Nice easy trail. 44 year old father, 11 year old daughter, 1 hour 40 with a few mins spent skimming stones across frozen lake etc. little muddy in parts but easy to skirt around the bad parts. Extremely well marked.

Nice easy walk through the woods with some mild elevation. Parking is clear but there are a lot of intersecting trails in the area. I was checking the AllTrails map pretty frequently to make sure we were on the right track.

Lots of water & mud. Had to jump some rocks over the stream and hike around some major puddles.

December 2020: Very rewarding hiking experience at Mountain Laurel. I would give it five stars without the hunting thing.

A surprisingly great hike! For a flatter hiking trail it was certainly adventurous enough especially with the muddy spots. Some nice inclines that were just enough to get the heart pumping. I highly recommend. Slippery with muddy spots and leaves. Also had to cross over some small amounts of water.

Most of the trail was nicely marked, flattened pavement. Some of the trails marked on this map however are not marked on the park map or while hiking as well. Otherwise was good to be out an adventurous.
