This is a great walk in the woods with a wide path which is likely a service road or was a service road. It is gravel and dirt. You can stay on the road all the way or follow the loops. One of the loops is a small section on the mountain-to-sea trail. If you take the outer loop back, you only have a short walk on 221 back to your vehicle but have plenty of room on the grass to stay safe. I recommend this trail for those who want a good work out and don't mind being surrounded by woods. I parked right at the entrance on 221 rather than parking across the street at the Pisgah picnic area. There is a barricade to keep vehicles out but there are parking spots. It was great for my dog as well.
