Well maintained trail, with even mulch along the way. First island look out is beautiful and looks like a tropical paradise. Continue to overlook big glen because that water color is out of control beautiful. It has a bit of an incline but nothing too strenuous. Go to get a good idea of your surroundings. Trail is very dog friendly.

Lots of flora and fauna on this trail. The storm in 2015 definitely changed much of the trail but the lookout points/views are completely worth the hike!!
If you're looking for an outside activity that will take a few hours then do the whole loop. Great trail to hike in the fall, the colors are breathtaking.
