This was a cool trail. Not any great views but the atmosphere was soothing. The fern fields and mossy rocks and trees were a site to experience. Also the wild life was abundant. We saw several deer and turkeys as well as many birds. Overall this was a fun trail.

Trail should not be marked as easy. There were multiple streams that were higher than ankle-deep that we had to cross. Very rocky, very muddy and many exposed roots along the path. Beautiful trail and enjoyable, but I would label it as moderate difficulty.
