Park at the Pine Lane Trailhead. Definitely a workout (especially for people just getting back into hiking) on the outward segment of the Buckeye Trail. Be prepared to hike to the top of the ridge. I used the bridle trail to loop back around and hiked back in on the Buckeye Trail. Also be prepared to cross a section of the creek. It was shallow enough that my boots didn't get too wet, but I can imagine after a heavy rain it could get a little trickier to cross.

Walked this trail. Well marked Buckeye Trail for first half clockwise to furthest point north, then need to follow the bridle trail which takes a little awareness of direction! Second half went quicker than first half until we came across a bridge out and had to get creative to cross the Creek. Fun scrambling in the undergrowth in the winter. Can imagine in the summer if the bridge isn't fixed it won't be so great....

Great trail! Muddy but to be expected at this time of year. Challenging spots but levels out in areas also. Great hike!!

The bridle trail connection is nice to make a loop just over 3 miles long. It's easy to moderate. Very peaceful even in early spring.

Not a "typical" bridle trail, kind of hilly and narrow in spots, which makes it nice for a hike.
