Falls Trail plus Old Beaver Dam Rails trail to Grand View Trail to Ganoga View Trail. Falls trail is always great - can add 2 more loops that take you through some nice forest and then to the Fire Tower at the highest peak at Ricketts.

Really well maintained trail! A couple confusing trail markers, but as long as you stay on your toes you will have no problems. Falls trail had a lot of traffic, but we only saw a few others on old beaver dam and grand view loops. If you are somewhat physically fit and active I would rate this as moderate as opposed to difficult. We (two adults) moved right along and did 12.8 miles in 5 hours. Well worth it!
