Moderate trail and is marked well. Quite a few places by Hall lake to hang a hammock and relax. Beautiful area with some exhausting elevation changes.

This is one of my favorite North country Trail trails. Not only can you have a beautiful hike on the North country Trail, but there are other well-marked trails in the recreation area. Wetlands, ponds and a lake make up this beautiful wooded trail. I did it in the early spring and I just went yesterday and reveled in the beauty of an in-bloom spring forest. Around 7 PM the tree frogs and all the wetland critters were making some beautiful sounds. This is a go to trail for me.
