Hiking

There are much nicer trails within just a couple miles of this trail that I would go to before I would ever do this trail again 2 miles of it was along the road and another mile was along the old gas line Road runnable but I would rather hike in the woods. No vistas. Couple of streams. But nothing close to the other trails like a little painter in Hogh knob that are nearby

Definitely start up the LT from the parking lot. You’ll go up Peter’s Path (much better than coming down it). Added bonus - you get to run down Little Bear Creek Road to the parking lot of you go start there and go that direction. Great loop! (:

Running

If running this route, I would advise beginning up the LT first from the main parking area, a counterclockwise route. The remainder of the trail is entirely runnable from the top of the ridge, where the LT meets the pipeline.

Coming down is a little iffy, especially if it just rained. Pretty slippery!

First to Review

Pretty nice trail. If you start up the snowmobile path it is about 2 miles of going up. Nice burn. Bummer about 3 miles in you are on a pipeline for a little bit and about a mile of the LT. After that you get spit out onto Little Bear RD so I was kind of bummed about that at first but when you actually walk along the road, you notice things you miss while driving up and it's still pretty peaceful. Overall it was a great hike today and I will definitely go back and do it again
