Quite a bit of snow made it slow going on all but the snowmobile trails. Beautiful views!

WalkingGreat!

Very nice and easy trail. I would not call this moderate. Well-marked, nice views, and a good little ramble without much elevation gain or loss.

The trail was well marked. Good view of the Albany Downton area from up the hill. The dotted trails had no markings, had to rely on gps to route our way back into the marked path

I would consider this an easy trail. Beautiful nice long trek with a couple good view pay offs.

This is a fun trail network. It is nice and flat which makes for an easy time especially the kids. We did this from A different starting point then what is recommended on the hike. There are many trails that intersect so depending on how far you want to hike and what you want to see the world is your oyster. You go from hiking in fields to hiking in woods to hiking on dirt roads. All of which are easy and relatively well maintained. Our hike was just 4 miles on the nose but we could have made it much longer if we wanted. We only did hang gliders cliff next time I would look to do the high point Lookout as well. Looking forward to coming back in the Winter and trying this with snowshoes.
