only did about 1.5 mile out - just wanted a nice walk in the woods. not much to see on that part, but pretty woods.

The trail starts in a wet lowland area with hemlocks and rhododendrons and eventually rises to a scrubbier understory with deciduous trees and pines forming the canopy. In some places there are blueberry bushes as far as the eye can see. This trail had some nice variety and although the (brief) steep section wasn't overly challenging, I recommend taking the loop counter clockwise to meet the steeper area going uphill rather than down. Beautiful!

Perfect time of year for this hike. It was a nice and easy hike with some snow on the ground. The view was a lot nicer with all the leaves off the trees.

This is a fairly easy trail but a little rocky. Its well marked with orange blazes. The highlight of the trail is the view of the valley with Birch Run Resevoir. It would probably be better when the leaves are off. There are no steep inclines so overall an easy hike.
