Don't let anyone tell you differently-this trail is challenging. Given, I took it after a day of continued drizzle. The trails are wet and slippery when damp - wear good hiking boots. Expect to step and climb over 60-70 felled large trees. Expect trails to have roots, rocks, sudden elevation changes - pay attention to placement of every step. In the growing season, undergrowth is lush and encroaches on the trail. If you don't like to be touched by all the vegetation, wear long sleeves and pants. There are bugs.

If you're like me and you're fine with all of the above, this trail is for you. Additional bonuses, there is no one else on the trail. I was surprised for such a heavily populated area to not see another person at all. The rain earlier in the day could have chased the people away or the fact that it's a Monday- but still.

I have to take the trail again because I forgot to record until I was 1/2 a mile in. Happy Hiking!

This perimeter trail is a really nice hike for an urban area. The majority of the trail is in the forest, though there is some meadow and a little pavement. Some of the trail is heavily trafficked, but the majority of it is not. It can get quite muddy if it's rained recently. I really enjoy this hike within the city.
