This is not in Clarksburg State Park; it's not even in Clarksburg.

You have to park at the YMCA/Brayton Elementary School.. Do not park on Marion Avenue! It's a residential area and no room for people to park.

It's not challenging at all except for the mosquitoes. That said, it's a lovely spot and if you're not used to hiking, this is a good introduction. The elevation gain is hardly noticeable. It can be muddy so if you go after a rain be careful.

I give it four stars because the mosquitoes sucked the fifth star out of me.
