Great trail, well marked. Only saw a couple of people. Beware of the acorns in the fall!!!! Would definitely come back and walk it again.

Good range of terrains, secluded trail, beautiful forest scenery. Trail spans 3 mountains with several good ascents and descents. I would rate challenge level as moderate. Get out and hike!

This trail is called the beehunter trail and is well marked once you are on the trail. When the trail ends you will have to find the bike path to follow to get back to your car but it's only about a half a mile away. I would recommend this hike.

I'm not aware of a specifically "10.9 mile trail" in Allegany SP, but there are indeed several hiking trails in the Red House Lake area. We hiked about 10 miles, there-and-back, on the section of the North Country Trail passing through Allegany, accessing it via the Conservation Trail, which starts right behind the Red House Administration Building. This was a moderate hike, with a steady but gradual initial climb and mostly undulating terrain after that. Trails were well-marked. The tree canopy is very dense here, so there's not much understory, which is great for wildlife viewing--we were able to spot and observe a young bear quietly foraging more than 50 yards away.
