We missed the loop so the intended trip was cut a little short but overcoat was a very pleasant hike with decent terrain.

nice well traveled "easy" to "moderate" trail; relatively short but easy to link with other trails for a longer hike (e.g., co-op trail); very well marked

A quick, easy fun trail that can be connected to other trails for more difficulty. Nice and cool under the forest canopy on hot days!

great hike, great signage. Kids started complaining at mile 1 so we took shortcut back to boat ramp but it was just a lovely day for our girl scout troop!

Loved the parts that were truly in the forest. Some wide parts felt more congested.

WalkingGreat!

Relaxing trail that was perfect for my medium sized pup. Took just over an hour at a casual pace. Trail markings are clear except for a couple spots, but nothing too bad.
