Most of the culverts created dips in the trail. I chose to bike and stuff flew out of my front basket when I hit a culvert. I won’t come back to this trail.

Fosters trail is still closed, but a nice cruising hike. No view, but graded road most of the way.

I did the trail in the late fall last year. It was a great hike, lots of little waterfalls along the sides of the trail. Had a little bit of early snow on the ground. Some elevation, not a lot Trail was well marked and easy to follow.

Great loop to get some cool mileage in from Little River State Park.

The majority of the trail is wide ,mostly flat, logging road in the shade. Only About 20 percent of it is elevated . It's really a great walk through the woods crossing brooks . I did not see a lake as mentioned in the bio above . There is not a summit . The length is probably why it's rated moderate . Dogs seem to do great on this trail . Park at the last parking lot on the left by the red gate if you want to park near the start of the trail . It is a loop , so when you start you can go straight behind the red gate or go left of the red gate . We went left to start and most of the elevation was done on the first few miles .

Great place to bring your dog! Old logging trails that are no longer in use that are nice and wide! Beautiful and refreshing streams for a dip or drink for the dogs too!
