I'm not sure why this trail is rated difficult. There were only a few places that were moderately up/downhill, although we never made it to the loop at the end, taking a side loop instead. The best part was that there were no mountain bikers here, so it was a very peaceful walk through the woods. There are many side loops that aren't shown on this map and you can pick up a map at the Discovery Center at the start of the trail.

Beautiful trail. The bugs bothered me, probably because of the time of year, but I can't wait to go again in fall, especially to see all the leaves change. It was pretty easy until the loop- that was a bit of a challenge. Overall, I really enjoyed it.
