Nice and quiet. This is a very serene trail that is well marked. We completed blue, red, purple then back to red and ended on blue where we began at the trailhead. Yes, there is elevation but i dont know why its rated as difficult. It wasnt challenging but a nice steady hike overall. We will def go back in spring or summer. Lots of signs of wildlife and no people! #win!

The trail would be good if it was taken care of. It is overgrown.

My recording did not match the loop as shown but most of the trails are well marked and easy to follow. I started off at the Gate House and headed up the road to the Americorps Valley trail (blue) on the right. Crossed Nielson Road and took Tenderfoot trail (Pink) to the Spring House. Explorer trail (blue) to Old Swenson Farm trail (yellow) then an unmarked trail to Americorps Mtn trail (blue). The Shortcut trail (orange) brings you back to Nielson Road and becomes Sugarbush trail (brown). Leprechaun trail (green) to Jenine/Ed/Mike/Audrey trail (yellow). I took Great trail (red) on the right which met up with the blue trail through a cornfield and back to the trailhead. Overall a nice tour of the Lusscroft Farm area. Some vernal pools and old farm buildings to check out. Lots of wildlife.
