great hike close to my house. I was surprised how nice this was. overall flat hike with a steady ascent into the hills. there are a few different blaze colors so navigating direction with a map and compass was necessary for me to be sure I wasn't back tracking on a different route. waterproof boots are a must as parts are currently ankle deep in mud.

Nice trail, well kept and well marked in some places. The red trail is closed but theres a new one that isn’t as well marked to replace it.

Great walk in the woods. A few steep inclines but not long. Trails are well marked. We didn’t see one single person on the entire loop!
