Please, please mark your trails better. Went through the Old Scarbuck Entrance following the yellow trail and ended up lost in the woods for 2 hours following misleading marked trees.

Beautiful forest just unfortunately confusing beyond belief. I even checked Instagram to see who else has checked in there to find that someone else posted about getting lost for 3 hours there.

Take a compass and know which way you'll need to be!

Great trail. One of my favorite in the area. Old growth forest, quiet, and peaceful.

Short, quick hike. I do believe it's more than the stated 2 miles, maybe I took an extension of it? There appears to be some old growth forest, or it is just incredibly mossy, which was really cool. Part of the forest is second growth, with pine trees in perfect rows and tight, creating a pretty cool effect. Slippery and bridges are in need of some repairs. Great place to bring the dogs.

This is a peaceful, well-marked trail. It's the perfect place for a quick and relatively easy hike in the woods. Enough variation to keep it interesting, without it being difficult. It has a few streams, mostly wooded. One of my favorites.

A great walk in the woods. There are 2 loops that total 3 miles. You can do both loops without backtracking.
