Potential for overgrowth and muddy trails. Some old structures visible from trail. Area varies from dense woods to open grassland. Probably most enjoyable from late fall to early spring. Alternate trail heads available to make hike slightly shorter or longer.

Trail was overgrown almost everywhere except near trail heads. Lots of downed trees and deep horse ruts along the way. Other than that it was a nice trek with lots of wildlife (numerous deer, squirrels, rabbits and turtles). Liberally used 25% Deet, but still came off the trail with somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 ticks on me and my clothing/gear.

Creek crossings up after rain. No way to get over without getting wet. Lots of multi floral rose to snag you along the way. Trail was well marked.

Went here in August. trail was pretty overgrown. Walk in the woods but no real significant views. There were a couple creek crossings, but i will not go back unless dead of winter. I climbed out of there and was covered in hundreds of seed ticks even though i had sprayed down in deet.

Great hike! Plenty to see. Some small creek beds to cross and great distance for an easy workout.
