Nice hike with the family. There are some areas of overgrowth and down trees that need to be cleared.

I’d rate this as something between moderate and hard based on other trails ratings in the area. On my hike there seem to have been a number of sections where the path wasn't as well worn/maintained but I found it engrossing and it helped with the illusion that I was away from everything, tons of spaces where foliage forms near tunnels around the path.

Highly enjoyable, some nice ascent and descents, much more than 375 ft when repeatedly changing elevatiion over the course of the wider path

Absolutely beautiful forest with well-designed, interesting trails and lots of changing terrain. Trails need some maintenance to clear fallen trees and branches and there's a lot of invasive species encroachment, but overall this is a wonderful place for a mind-clearing bit of exercise.
