This was a nice path on a hot day (90°F) for my wife, me and our 2 dogs. Being a senior citizen and given the heat index, we elected to cut across the loop about 1/2 way in and still hiked 2.5 miles.
The terrain is pretty easy and the forest is not real dense, so it was very pleasant. The trail is sandy and the slopes are gentle. The flora consists of a lot of oak trees and low green ferns.
There are several alternate trails that cut across the loop (well marked and legitimate ) so the hike can be customized to varying conditions if necessary.
The entrance to the trail is somewhat obscure and it required a walk from the car to confirm. The trails are well marked and numbered so navigation was simple. To locate the trailhead enter 9901 East 13th street. (Wexford- Missaukee Career Tech Center) It’s up the hill to the east of the parking lot.
Happy hiking.

Great for beginners. Terrain rangers from sandy, to rocky, to leaf covered, to uneven and full of tree roots. The path has signs to help you choose which path to take. The signs indicate the degree of difficulty of each path. Some paths are hilly, some paths are dense. None are difficult to maneuver. You can come back many times and take several different routes.

Great woods good for hiking. Some good hidden single tracks. Main trails have some hard long hills to climb.

Decent inclines throughout, fairly sandy. It's not marked anywhere but this is also a mountain bike trail.
