Hamilton Ridge Trail is an old road that is still paved or moss covered in many areas. This makes it very easy to travel on and should be ok for most skill levels.

The trailhead and small parking area is located near Millbrook Village which is worth checking out and also has restrooms available.

By itself the Hamilton Ridge trail is kind of boring. If I were to return I would add the Pioneer Trail and turn it into a loop. Much more to see including historic sites along the Pioneer Trail and would not add much more mileage.
