A fairly easy 16 mile hike on the AT. It's easily done as an overnighter. A lot of the hiking is through corn fields and cow pastures. The last two miles are in the woods.

nice trail to do for all ages crosses a couple of roads so watch for the occasional pick-up truck.

This was a round trip for me, which led me a little over 8 miles. Leidich Road, through Boiling Springs, over to Lisburn Road and back again. Easy hike, mostly wooded but some field walking just south of Boiling Springs.

This is a great day trip that included a good sample of the areas different local landscapes. If slightly challenging ascents aren't something you want, I might recommend reversing the trip to start on the north side. If it's been raining make sure to plan appropriately for some soggy ground at the southern section. Thanks to the poster for the great hike.
