Really nice trail with lots of little streams. Lots of spider webs we had to walk through but overall a good hike.

HikingMuddy

The low area off the trailhead is a bit grassy and slightly overgrown. Keep going as the trail is really quite nice! Steep in some spots on the climb up, so may want to keep little ones close by but once you climb up, it’s almost “flat” as you are on the ridge line. Definitely a do again. No ticks, no snakes today, one turtle nesting and some ripe raspberries......Definitely a hike again!

This trail was the muddiest trail I’ve been on. And my GPS had me at 11.1 miles when I finished so be aware that it’s a little longer than stated.

Scenic trail with some mud on the ascent near the Route 7 trail head. We somehow missed a connection to the Greenwood trail, but found our way back with about 9 miles under our belt.

The switchbacks helped make the first incline fairly easy but the mud mad it pretty challenging in some places. At the beginning and end of the trail it gets pretty sloppy. I stopped at the creek near archers fork to cool off in the water around mile 5-6. A few trees blowndown along the way.

Too much mud. A big tree was blown down across the trail and very difficult to get around it.

Hiked the Green Wood Trail this weekend. It rained Friday so the streams were running making some nice waterfalls. Carpets of blue flowers. Saw one other hiker. Took boots off to cross one high stream. Great trail.

Backpacking

First time hiking this trail. Was hoping to do an overnight COVID-19 camping trip. (very limited places to camp unless dispersed camping). Followed the Topo map about 3/4 mile north from Rt. 7 to a flat area on top of the ridge and setup an incredible campsite. Caught a really nice sunrise thanks to still-bald trees. A beautiful abundance of wildflowers of all sorts and Buckeye Leaves are thriving all along this section of the trail. The trail starts low and had lots of wet spots, but once you're on the ridge, it dried out. The switchbacks make this climb fairly simple. Planning on coming back for more overnight trips and hoping to do the entire loop at some point this summer.

Beautiful trail. Description said 9.8 miles, my map recording said 11.2 miles. Took six hours including several breaks and taking pics along the way. We started at Greenwood Trail and ended at Scenic River.

First to Review

We took the olds hollow trail and part of the exterior peninsula trail. It was very pleasant and interesting because there were lots of mushrooms along the way. We saw fly aminitas and giant mushroom fairy rings ( up to 60 feet in diameter). We also saw red rusalas and blue lactarius.
