Easy terrain and trail. Muddy at many parts and lots of bugs. You will definitely need to have this app running because very easy to get lost. Many different trails And not well marked at all. Overall enjoyed this trail a lot.

First to Review

I generously gave this lightly traveled, family friendly trail a 4 star rating for hiking. It can best be described as a vanilla trail (nothing special about it). It was a great walk in the woods where you can easily rack up 8 miles. The moderate rating on this trail is way off base. Even for a novice hiker, it is an easy one. Elevation change is minimal. The difficult portion of the hike was staying on the Alltrails Premarked Trail. The many connecting trails were mostly unmarked. Sometimes the trails were well worn, but at times, the trail disappeared into a large field, just disappeared, or morphed into a dirt road. I cannot stress enough the necessity of downloading the trail map ahead of time so when you discover spotty or no cell service, you still have the gps. I would probably still be wandering the many trails if it wasn't for the gps and the downloaded Alltrails Map. I would hesitate to say this is a dog friendly trail as it is used frequently for horseback riding. This made avoiding the many horse droppings on this trail challenging at times. Another note of interest to a would be hiker is the undefined parking area. Alltrails took us to the parking area which was a field across the road diagonally from the trail head.
