Nice trail, we’ll marked. Started left from D Loop closed road. Steady to start, then long easy decline, then moderately tough incline towards the end.

Not the best scenery, but a nice challenging stretch that hit about 5 different trails, each of them different. Very relaxing hike.

Great long hike, several small hills, perfect path with maybe 2 small muddy spots that were easy to traverse. Perfect weather for this trail

Loved this trail. Only did 1/2 of the loop today. Slow incline down. Was nice for the dog too.

easy trail with one moderate Hill climb, well forested so I was protected from both the sun and a brief shower. pretty boring overall but a nice walk in the woods for me and the pup.

We could not find the trail head where the map shows it. Park staff directed us to drive to D loop and park in the area next to the gated access road. Walk up the gravel access road to where the trail crosses it.

rained torrents three days in a row before I hit this trail so the mud was to be expected. Shaded the whole way and surprisingly few bugs but that could change. Good over all and i think moderate difficulty is a fair rating.

Great little hike, but the trailhead starts at site # 18 in the Loop A campgrounds. Glad this section was closed or it would be a little awkward going through someone’s campsite to get to the trail.

Great well marked trail. Parked in the wrong spot so added a bit on to the mileage. Muddy in spots but not too bad considering the amounts of rain we’ve had.

Great trail. We entered from the road that leads up to the water tower (look for signs for loop D and park off to the right before the “road closed” sign). Definitely easier to start on the left side than the right. Lots of mud on the trail made it challenging (but fun) because we had to do a lot of “off roading” to avoid mud. Many small water features along the way. The trail is rather rocky, so wear good shoes. Leaves made it difficult to see the rocks on the trail this time of year.

A good add-on to my Boone Trail loop. Started from Hopewell Lake, took Boone Trail clockwise to Fire Tower Road, north of Scott's Lake, then Six Penny counter-clockwise, and then a bit of a shortcut by taking Lenape trail back to Hopewell Lake via Park Rd. A little over 7.5 miles altogether. No vistas, a few mushroom species, and a weird collection of abandoned metal objects - wire baskets, a fuel tank, shelves.

First to Review

I hiked this trail on a Fall Saturday late morning. It was very peaceful and quiet, only saw one other person on the section that merges with the Horse Shoe trail. Would definitely recommend wearing sturdy shoes, especially after leaves have fallen. Parts of the trail are very rocky and it was hard to see with all the leaf covering. This trail can be easily accessed from the campground by the connector trail - I just walked down the back of my campsite and I came right to it!
