If you’re someone who cares about the pandemic we are in, there is little to no mask etiquette with the folx here who come through here. It’s a bit of a downer because otherwise the trail is pretty great, the elevation keeps you entertained.

Awesome trail! Very well-marked! The scenery was lovely and the elevation changes really got the heart pumping! (Pit toilet by trail is hit or miss in terms of cleanliness)

Trail really well marked. Nice trail with some elevation thrown in to keep it challenging. Definitely a moderate trail in SE Michigan. I didn’t see a lot of people today but from experience, weekends and warm weather will pack this trail. I do, however, recommend hiking, biking or walking this trail at least once.

Great!

Very nice trail. Considering a couple days of rain trail was in very good shape. Will hike it again when leaves are in and venture off into other trails. Would recommend this trail. Temperature was 50 and sunny. Perfect for hiking. Enjoy
