Great trail! It goes off path in a few places, so it would be good to take your cell phone to use this amazing app!!!

Lots of flexibility with these trails... Go high, go low. Short loops, long loops. On 5/21, I backpacked Deacon Merrill to Turkey Trot to Hamblett to Meeting House. About 3 hours total. Good challenges in some parts. Some trails are blazed while others are not. Either way there's no problem recognizing the trail.

Great systems of trails which can be catered to your abilities. The elevation increases occur mainly along the power lines. There was one trail that is mapped that as far as I can tell does not exist. The Turkey Trot trail blazed in red is not mapped but connects Meetinghouse to Hamblet Nash trail.
A huge positive, despite the mud, my dogs and I did not have one tick ( believe me I search thoroughly).

If you want a short and flat hike then this is fine. The problem is that when you suddenly come out to a street, there are no signs showing where to go. Better get out your phone for the GPS.

Signs everywhere that say it's private property: will not attempt.

it was nice but too easy for me. It's a good leisurely walk.

Overall the trail is really pleasant. The moderate rating is likely due to the trail condition. There are lots of rocks and roots, which just adds to the fun. There are more loops off of the main loop as well, which makes the trail total more like 5-6 miles. However, the lower rating comes from the absurd amount of mosquitoes. If you're headed there in the summer, pack lots of bug spray!!! You can actually see clouds of them some days.
