Honestly, this is probably a 3-star trail, but it's where I first met my partner, sooooo... 4. :D

This is my favorite trail to take new hikers on. I Take my friends and we park a car at the winking lizard in peninsula and then start in Boston. Then hike the 4.5 mile section of the buckeye Trail to the Winking lizard, grab some food and a cold beer and that's that. Along the way there are some nice overlooks of the valley if you can ignore the turnpike below you. It is the easiest section of the buckeye train in the CVNP outside of when if follows the towpath. There is a gradual uphill at the start and then is flat for the rest until maybe mile 4 and it goes down and back up. and that is it. ez pz
