Too hilly for biking

I was generous with the rating because this had what we wanted, a shaded hike next to a swimming hole and something different. The hike itself was 2/5 because it's not well marked, requires walking along a road and is yards away from a road for most the hike and in mid summer is recommend big repellent. all in all, worth while if you want something different and especially nice if you want to swim afterwards

I would happily give it 4 or 5-star rating, for it is a beautiful stroll through the woods, easy to barely moderate, but for the signage/logistics. It's nominally called the Pepperbush Trail, but that name showed up nowhere until we'd walked about 2.5 miles. It's also the Long Trail in parts, the Hardwood Trail, also the Caesar Trail. To hike it without getting way off trail, make sure your phone is well-charged, and that you have the mapping function in pedestrian mode. Just assiduously adhere to the red trail indicator on the map. I really don't like hiking with phone in-hand, and constantly consulting it. After all, one of the main reasons I'm in the woods hiking is to get away from technology and to enjoy nature.
