Did shelter trial and river trail. I would rate river trail as difficult not moderate. I also heard many gunshots - beginning of sept so makes you wonder. Beautiful hike fun but don’t like the gunshots.

This rail was poorly marked, we got lost numerous times and finally left out of frustration

Inspiring and beautiful. With lots of ways to wander as you will. Only did part - not whole - but will be back. Came in late April and did hear gunshots. Not sure what the hunting is like in the area, but may be good to wear bright colors.

Very nice trail, mostly in forest with sparse understory. If you walk it counterclockwise, follow first yellow blazes of Breakhart trail, then the white blazes of Shelter trail southwards. At Frosty Hollow pond, take the John Hudson trail northwards to go back to Breakhart pond.
