We combined a number of different trails for this hike including portions of the Hinckley Hills Loop, the Ledge Lake Trail, Worden's Ledges Loop Trail, the Hinckley Lake Loop Trail, and portions of the bridle trail. Worden's Ledges is a great area with some stone carvings circa 1940s.

Lovely but very muddy trail! The first half of this trail is very narrow and prone to mud. The second half--the part that crosses over the Buckeye trail--was dry and wide and relatively flat. Challenging first half and easy peasy but beautiful second half.
I went on a late March cloudy and warm Saturday and saw not one other human until I returned to the parking lot. Nice and secluded.

The trail is easy to follow; follow the green blazes in some parts and the green arrows in others/follow the buckeye trail when the trails intersect.
