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!
