Lots of trees fell from the tropical storm - also made it buggy! In general I love this trail just picked the wrong day!

Get rid of the trash! Shirts hanging from trees, water bottles, come on! Didn't see one hiker. Really, ideal for mountain bikers, which we ran into regularly so pay attention. Alot of noise from roads nearby. Busier with people as we got closer to the ponds. A ton of different trails and it can get confusing staying on the right trail. 8.9 mile hike turned into 10.5 miles.

Trails need housekeeping. Many down trees z and limbs. Each hiker/biker pick up 5 branches.

Seemed much longer than ~9mi! Most of the trails are not marked so be sure to bring your phone in with a full battery. Otherwise, great trail. Lots of sustained slight elevation changes and wildlife (we saw ducks, geese, deer, snakes, and some shrews).

Short walk today. We cut it short as a biker told us there was quite a bit of mud on our planned route. Still fun and left many options for another day.

First to Review

Nice trail. fairly technical and very narrow in some spots. Minor elevation gains along the way. Lot of rocks with some very tight fits to get through. some steep drop offs. Not too bad but really needs to be better marked. Easy to beer off in a wrong direction if you don't know where you are going
