Entrance is behind the funeral home, uphill half a block, and then down an almost hidden bit of stairs. See first pic. Some steep areas, have to cross over streams. Can hear the cars a bit. Only went in about a mile (30 mins) and then back the way I came.

This is a great trail if you want to look at your phone the whole time to make sure you don’t get lost. There were lots of parts that you either walked on a sidewalk along the road or along a highway. Not a peaceful quiet route. There were a few points of interest but nothing memorable. Definitely moderate level hiking, nothing particularly challenging.

Overall a great trail, but I definitely had some challenges going the right way. Lots of paths crisscrossing in some areas. Also it took me forever to find the trail entrance as the coordinates took me to a funeral home, but the entrance is actually about 1/2 way up the street beside the funeral home. Some parts of the loop are super easy while others a bit more challenging. A great blend with lots to see.

definitely one of the harder ones. with smaller hike trails, roots, rocks etc, good elevation, kind of nice for some sidewalk road work in between trails..

I really enjoy this run on my "long run" days. So many different variations and ways to go! Along the path, you'll see Crumhenge, the mansion ruins at Swarthmore, wigwams, and a bunch of other surprises! Commonly see deer and little critters.
