Scio Forest is a very pretty little woods. The trails are generally nicely maintained, although brush is encroaching the trail several places. It is a relatively wet woods and has lots of mosquitoes, bring your bug spray. Much of the trail is reasonably quiet, with very little noise from Scio Church road; the frogs can kick up quite a racket in the evening. My most recent pics are geo-tagged on my 6/1/18 track.

Scio Forest is a very nice little woods. While the red loop passes fairly close to houses for much of the trail, they will probably become unnoticeable as the woods greens in the spring. I saw a group of 5-6 deer two different times, although it might have been two distinct groups. There are a few short bridges/boardwalks over small streams. The trails are much younger than many parks and, given the number of places they had puddles or ice patches, I suspect they will be somewhat muddy as the spring thaw comes. I look forward to returning regularly to this short walk in the woods.
