Not a secluded trail. You can hear the highway the entire path

This is a nice easy trail without being boring. Great for walking or jogging.

Nice, easy walks in the woods. Well-maintained trail. Not much to entertain hardcore hikers, but nice place to take the dog or young kids.

The southern entrance is near where I live, so we have hiked from there quite a few times to the bridged and back. Or we have started from the other trail heads as well with my 3 and 6 year old, who both do pretty well here, as does the dog. The kids get a kick out of the bridges and nice views from them, as well as the abandoned, crashed car, near the southern end. Plenty of geocaches in the area, which is something we enjoy looking for. Easy, pleasant hike.

This is my favorite walking trail in the area. I have done it many times. It is even beautiful in the rain.
However, with it's ease, also comes many unleashed dogs. Many, Many. And not sticking close to their owners either, which is frightening when you come upon them loose.

This trail starts at fox farm and leads to gurney lane, it's a beautiful trail with a couple hills, if running it it's a little difficult but definitely give it a go, very relaxing! It's also a very well built area with a few bridges!

Nice easy trail, wide and easy walking. My only gripe was where All Trails directs you to park: in the Courthouse parking lot so that you have to walk over Rt 87 on a busy road. Not very pleasant or safe. There is designated Rush Pond parking right where the trail starts: on the WEST side of Rt 87. See photo of trail map. There's also parking at the other end of the trail, off Aviation Rd on Fox Farm Rd. Otherwise, there was some road noise at times, but mostly quiet. It was a welcomed change from the rigors of Mt Buck and Mt Black. We needed an easy one.
