Nice trail with some long straight away stretches through the trail. Cross over route 303 to Happy Days lodge to pick up Haskell Run trail to The Ledges trail for an extended run/hike. A great trail for wildlife viewing.

It was a great hike! Not too crazy long but long enough to get a good workout while enjoying a beautiful view

Great for an afternoon hike or run. Has some incline.. I would make the first left to go down the hill, so you don't have to go up the hill at the end..

Appalachian Outfitters spring hiking series. It snowed overnight so everything was very pretty but it melted quickly and was muddy. Lots of other hikers, trail runners and dogs. Nice hour long hike.

Not my favorite hike, but a nice little trip. If you're here, I would reccommend going accross the street to the Happy Lodge/Ledges trail. But a good warm up and walk through the woods.

It was awesome. The incline was a challenge but it was fun .it took us about 2 hours for 3.4 miles. It was worth the hr drive .
