Very easy-moderate hike for beginners/day hikers and families. Some is overgrown a little, which could be annoying when wearing shorts. Be cautious of private property lines. Great trail for semi-experienced mountain bikers.

It's a fairly decent trail that looks to be cleared frequently. Not very busy, only ran into 2 groups on labor day. Trail is very thin, can't have anyone beside you. The trail also isn't very flat, and your feet are often at different elevations to be balanced. Also 2-3 dollars a person depending on the day.

great day hike site, great place to take the dogs. draw back, dogs like water after a long hike. the cove rule posts no wading or swimming. remember your $2.
