Thank you!

This is a great, challenging trail. There are very frequent elevation changes and different terrain. We really enjoyed hiking here and will be back in the fall to complete the entire trail. This is definitely rough with 88 deg. temp. and 70% humidity!

Tough trail but quiet and beautiful! Well marked, a little muddy and the bugs were a little bothersome, but youll get that anywhere. Theres a good mix of wooded areas and grasslands. The wildlife was also pretty active. Many chipmunks, birds, squirrels and I even saw a wild turkey. Coyotes do live in the area so be wary if youre taking your dog.

Wear as much coverage for sure. The grasslands grow over onto the trail and I made the mistake of wearing shorts and a tanktop.

Overall, a quiet, lovely trail. Would definitely do it again!

We hiked about half of this before we had to find out way out (time constraints, we had already hiked 10 miles by the time we got here). We plan on going back next week to do the entire stretch. I would take a hiking stick to get through some of the dicier parts (a wood bridge whose slats are breaking, etc). We ended up using branches which were heavy an awkward. Our aluminum sticks would have been a better bet.
