Went here in the fall of 2016. Nice trail that is fairly well groomed with one area where there is some elevation change. At the bottom it was a little soggy but that was the only hitch. I would call it light to moderate traffic as I went later in the day and a little later in the season.

We visited this location today and were very pleased with the trail loop. the hike was very muddy and messy which was to be expected as a big thunderstorm came through yesterday. I loved learning the history behind the battle of 1777 while we hiked the historical trail. Our hike ended up being 4.6 miles. We will be back for sure!
