Good long hike, not much elevation change, very cool plants and a little wildlife including a baby deer, crane, and frogs.
I give it a 4 because lake views are very rare on the trail.

Great hike, but be ready for the 8miles if you do the whole thing! I'd rate this as moderate just be a use of the length and the trail is full of roots to navigate. But a great hike!

I love this trail! Every time I go there is either no one around or one other person. The best way to enjoy a sunny afternoon

Great hike but be very cautious in the spring as the ticks are very bad.

Nice trail along Lake Higgins shoreline. Great spot to stop along the lake thanks to kind folks donating a couple of Adirondack chairs. Not a lot of wildlife. Few birds and squirrels. It was an unusually cool summer day in the mid 70's..
