Nice trail(s) - I did both the Kahchin and Penosha, to get about 6.5 miles. The far part of Penosha, on the road, isn't particularly thrilling, but the rest is a nice walk in the woods. Nice little hills, the trail was in generally excellent condition, shout out to the maintenance crew. I did see one hunter walking through the woods with his gun (this was in late September '16), but didn't hear any shots :-)

Great trail, plenty of challenge for us old guys. In spite of torrential down pours the last two weeks the trail was dry.

The trail is nice and mostly flat, hills are not that big or steep. The walk was nice and scenery will be even better come spring.
