Approx. 2 miles of this hike is on main roads. There are no markers. If it was not for this app we would have got lost.

Great hike except for the last half mile or so on Rte 211. Very dangerous traffic.

Trail run on Friday 1/25 took about 2.5hrs with a quick stop at Mary's Rock. First four miles are a lot of hiking but remainder is runnable. Last mile on 211 can be a bit tricky depending on conditions and traffic volume.
