Heart pumping climbs, steep descents and plenty of recovery straightaways in between. Primarily wooded views with creaks and occasional ponds. My wife and I enjoyed a 6 mile hike today and look forward to trying another direction next time.

Just look for the trail to start in the parking lot behind you. There is no loop. You walk til you want to turn around. Difficulty​ level hard.

Nice hike for the family - we hiked for about 90 minutes and encountered 1 or 2 mountain bikes on the trail- both extremely friendly. Went out on a Sunday morning around 9:30 and the trail was quiet but got busier on the walk back. Pretty easy with a few hills, no views. Good for a really hot day because the sun barely shines thru the tree cover.

Inaccurate description. This trail is for mountain biking only, not walking/hiking.

Nice mountain trail but not very scenic.
