Waterfall. Wild Trout Streams, Black River, Hemlock forest, Deep Ravines This loop hike is great if you are looking to get out for the day but relax more than hike. The hike will take you down into the Blackriver as well as along Trout and Rhinehart Brook, Hemlock Ravines and mature hardwood forests. The trails are wide and have gravel put down. If you want that challenge there are a few trails along the Black River that are more like hiking trails, narrow and rocky. This hike will take you through both trail types. Along the trails you will pass many benches and picnic areas. There are also old water fountains along the way that where built by the Civilian Conservation Cor, during the depression. They no longer work though. The trails are all unmarked but will be getting marked in the next year. The best time to hike the area is during the week when you will only encounter fly fisherman. Weekends tend to get crowded.
Went on this hike last week and there was a decent amount of cars in the lot due to the nice weather, but it never felt crowded. There's some great spots by small waterfalls to relax and read a book.
Took the White trail to the Red, well marked and a nice brisk hike. Some nice views and easy hiking. Took 1.5 hours.
Pleasantly surprised with this hike. No elevation or views, but a beautiful scenic walk along the river. Really beautiful in the fall when the leaves change. Perfect place to take your dog.
Did this in the rain, and it was awesome!
Fun, easy, great scenery.
This point is NOT accurate.
I've been coming here for over 20 years as it's tradition to hike here with the family every fall. We have some older members that join us (mid-70's), and they aren't fatigued at all when complete with the trail. It's an easy hike, and it's especially beautiful if you hit it during the fall season. Also, if you're interested, down the road is a small place called the Cider Mill. They're only open from September-November (Thanksgiving), but their apple cider and cider donuts are phenomenal. Stop there, and snack on the donuts and cider during the hike, and voilà! A beautiful day indeed!
Nice hike this morning. A little bit of everything... hiking, light climbing, hills, all along the Lamington river.
