Pretty good trail to do with kids and dogs...well maintained. Counter-clockwise travel knocks out the steeper parts first.

Fun trail to do with your family. It has a couple of nice inclines/declines, but my 8, 6 and 4 year old boys were able to easily handle them. If you go clockwise on the trail and get to the TSA beacon, that is not the "summit". Go about 200 yards further on the main trail and you will not miss it.

It was good for what I wanted today. Would have liked more incline/declines, but just a nice hike/walk in the woods. Mostly deer for wildlife and my dog had fun. One nice overlook view on the loop.

its a nice walk through the woods, short and easy. trail a little narrow sometimes so beware of ticks from the grass. only one really good view from the trail but there is a nice picnic area and visitors center for the family.
