lots of natural fallen trees on the path making it feel more interactive. I liked it a lot.

HikingGreat!Muddy

The trail is natural with no paved areas. Lots of tree roots to be aware of, and fallen trees are allowed to stay on the trail. We walked the day after it rained. It was slippery in areas. The creek, bridges, fallen trees added to the beauty of this short and interesting trail.

glad to have this app with the trail available, as I'm not sure I would have felt comfortable navigating the splits in the path without it.

3-5 times around this one would be a full workout. Well maintained, but as trails in the northland go... dull

Wonderful natural dirt trail. Marked easy, but to me as a new hiker one of the hardest miles I have done. Many steep hills stepping through tree roots. Many fallen trees to step over. Used my trekking pole a lot.

Noisy, suburban— it is a hike, no pavement— best I can get 5 minutes from home.

Did the whole trail tonight. Good walk, saw an owl and lots of squirrels. Nice walk, will probably be back this winter.

Short, different split offs for different lengths, and quite a few roots; overall a nice little trail!

It was beautiful this time of year and an absolute explosion of color. It is a very small walk but worth it, in my opinion.

Very Rocky terrain, a few spots where trees crossed the path (dog went low, I went high, not a good combo) otherwise the path was in good shape.
