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.

Excellent wooded hiking trail. Well marked with orange blaze. Loop took us 2 hours.

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.

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!
