Heavily trafficked in the first few miles, complete solitude from mile 4 on. Good range, starts east/moderate, the yellow square trail jumps significantly in difficulty and is much less traveled. Good scenery, not much of a view. Bring lots of water, this is a long hike!

Red square > Yellow Square > White Square > Red Line > back to Red Square

Lovely park with great variety of scenery... from pretty lakes to scenic outlooks. Abundant fauna.. we saw deer, a rattler, a black snake, frogs and black/blue butterflies. Definitely not hard though... more moderate. First section from road to lake heavily trafficked, quiet after that. Slow steady climb. Very lush plateaus and gullies. Flowers were out this time of year and the greenery was intense.

this is hard and rocky with plenty of stream crossings. great place to camp or do some backpacking/bring some AT magic. bring a filter- no need to over pack water.

The black on white trail was good. it would of been nice if the markers were a littler closer. Overall, it was great

The 3.5 mile red trail hike to the lake was more of a very good maintained path with a few foot bridges etc, very enjoyable.
I took the yellow trail back which was a fairly exhaustive climb to the top of the mountain, then the blue trail down which made me happy that I wore the right hiking shoes/etc due to the difficulty of some of the descents. I especially loved the blue trail.

I did Beech Trail today starting from Country Pond Road southwest toward the major N-S divergence about 3 miles from that point. It was a good 1:15 long hike, scenic, and varied topography.
