Beautiful trees and forest smells. Flat terrain. It was somewhat buggy due to the marshy surroundings at times. The trail was well maintained and marked.

The bugs made it pretty much impassable for me. Plus the woods were so tight you couldn’t see much. I would like to try again at a more temperate time of year.

all in all a fun hike. easy and I would say its pretty much flat. thanks to other reviews I took a extra pair of shoes that could get wet and muddy. about around mile 3 to 4 it got muddy and wet off and on. some of it is avoidable but there is a small section you will get your feet wet. keep in mind that it has been dry and really hot for over a week, during wetter times this trail could get really muddy through this area. the rest of the trail was dry and really well marked. personally I would continue your hike to m20. there is a parking lot there, plus i enjoyed the views of the extra 3 miles much more than the first 7 miles or so. there are a few down trees that block the trail but easily can go around.

If you just bring a couple pairs of extra socks, I recommend just walking through the washed out trail and then changing your socks. Actually very nice trail, and there was just one really muddy spot but hey we’re hikers, we can handle it

Great trail. Pretty flat for the most part, just some slight inclines and declines. I suggest bringing something for the bugs. Lots of shade but also sunny in most areas.

Really nice trail; quiet. Path pretty easy to see; very well marked northbound, decently marked southbound.
