Little shade since the Gypsy Moth invasion in 2018/19. Ferns have totally overgrown the trail in areas. Bring a machete if you want to try this one.

Fun loop, perfect for trail running. Windy today, so I was a little weary of the trees. Many dead due to gypsy moths.

This was a great hike I did with two kids and a dog! Great terrain, easy to navigate and not crowded at all.

Nice trail well marked easy to follow, the past few years of gypsy moths have basically killed the deciduous trees which makes for and eery landscape

Great trail through a lot of defoliate forest. Good up and down inclines and declines for a good workout.

We only did the orange and white loop, but great leaf peeping and nearly had the trail to ourselves. Easy hike, minimal elevation but just enough for pretty views.
