Parking lot for 5-6 cars. Great winter hike. Well marked. Well maintained. Didn’t see anyone else on a Saturday afternoon. Great mix of oak and pine forest. Some up and down and a few stream crossings with nice bridges. Wear orange. Enjoy.

HikingGreat!

Parking lot. Well marked throughout. Few options to make longer or about 2-3 miles. Few nice bridge coverings. Mix of pine and oak forest areas. Part of the larger Tillinghast pond management area. All trails are nice here. Was a perfect autumn morning hike. Great for all ages.

First to Review

This was a pretty easy hike, with enough hills to get you winded. The whole family enjoyed it; kids and dogs alike!
