Had a wonderful walk in the woods with the family today on this trail. It’s fairly well marked but several time we reviewed the map to make sure we were taking the right branch. The road getting to the trail was a bit soupy from the spring thaw, but the trail was fine. It’s a perfect spring or fall trail.

Great local trail. Can be hard to follow at times, especially when you are new to it. Look for the yellow diamonds. Some have arrows and some do not. Trail intersects some roads and horse trails in spots. Not as hard packed as some MTB trails, but provides a unique challenge. GREAT place to build up riding endurance and strength.

We had the forest to ourselves it seemed. Very beautiful and tranquil. Started at Horse Day Use Trail Head then turned onto the "A" mountain bike trail. The bike trails are excellent for hiking. Saw deer, wild turkeys, chipmunks and frogs during our 5-mile loop that took about 2 hours. Stopped several times to notice natures little wonders.
