In Glimmerglass State Park. Park at sharp curve in road past beach area. Trailhead and trail well marked. Some steep sections but generally moderate. Watch out for roots! Nice 2.5 mile loop including short return to parking area via road past Hyde mansion.

Decent trail. starts off with a continuous gradual incline and then is easy the rest of the way. Not really any spectacular scenery. Animals are obviously very used to people being around.
