Great trail. Great in the fall with all the colors. Lots of animal tracks but didn’t see any dear. Hiked after a full day of rain and trail had little mud.

Great trail that connects to the Oxen Mill trail and the Matson Hill trail - I hiked all three for about 9 miles total - this trail would be very popular with mountain bikers as there are lots of switchbacks on this trail.
