HikingGreat!

Great hike. Low elevation, easy to hike the whole thing plus beautiful views of the water towards the end.

Mostly shady which is good for a summer’s afternoon. Nice pond for views and for our Labrador.

An easy, mostly flat hike. Good for a quick out and back to the pond after work. Some mushrooms to look at along the way but no views except the pond. Lots of pine needle floor, so very easy walking. Quiet. Saw no one else. Not buggy until the end which was closer to dusk.

We completed this trail on 4/1 so hopefully conditions have improved since. The trail was muddy at the bottom, but once we got towards the top we encountered lots of ice with no way of navigating around it. Incredibly slippery so spikes would have been nice! Nice views.

open views have my heart and this doesnt include much for that but it is a nice easy walk in the woods exploring the stream my dog especially loves it on hotter days.

First to Review

No open views from this trail, but most of the lower area follows a stream through idyllic open ferny / mossy forest and traverses a bog just off of Old Street Road. Trails are clearly marked and worn. Several places have young trees growing out into the path but nothing impenetrable. It rained this morning so the trail was a little slick. Some boardwalks and stream traverses were a bit wobbly, so step cautiously: especially if they’re already wet! Would recommend for young families — easy to take this route at a slow pace and choose any point as a turn around destination. A few medium-sized boulders that look fun for climbing on. Trail is fairly flat until it turns away from the stream, but even then there are no extreme grades or rocky scrambles. Waypoints by the pond have small timber benches. The map is actually incorrect between the hill and East Mountain Rd, but the trail is well-marked. When you get to the road turn left and walk until you find the parking lot... the trail continues from there.
