I would say this trail is more easy than moderate but very relaxing. Majestic views and soothing nature sounds!

Well maintained, mostly flat with one fairly steep up and down. Trail signs get a bit confusing, and a I missed a small portion. Very peaceful. Trek to Hemlock Ravine is worth the view.

This is one of the nicer trails around. It "mingles" with the Oak Hill trail...some of the uploaded tracks below actually show the Oak Hill Trail, others show a combination. There are signs on the respective trails but, even so, it's easy to get confused. But it doesn't matter much because they both start and end in the same place. (The trail pictured at the head of the article is the true Plateau Trail.) Overall the Oak Hill trail is pretty flat, while the Plateau Trail is mostly so with the dip into the valley indicated. You're mostly in nice woods and away from road noises. Both trails go by nice ponds that are fun to check across the seasons. The spur to Hemlock Ravine is worth taking; it goes to the top of a deep ravine filled with hemlocks, not rare but not common in the area. This is a good trail for birding in the spring.
