I have walked this trail many times with groups and I enjoy it very much. It is a great introduction to hiking. The trail does contain some roots and ground that is not level, so do be careful if this is one of your first times venturing onto natural, unpaved or graded hiking trails.

The Batsto Lake White Trail (White blaze/marker) is about 4 miles start to finish. The trail is shared with the Batsto Lake Blue Trail (Blue blaze/marker) and the Batona Trail (Pink blaze/marker) for parts of its length.
I've enjoyed the use of this path through the woods for trail running. Easy on the legs yet a good workout.

This is the main State P & F site for both History and Hiking. Large visitors' center, huge 19th c. summer home of the Wharton family and a wide variety of trails to explore. I've been going there since the late 1940's and have yet to explore all the trails.
