A little muddy, but overall a nice light hike.

A lovely walk, but not at all level. We walked it widdershins (counter clockwise) and so began with the steep climb up the mountain. The tree cover is too thick for distance views but the trail itself is scenic, especially at the top where there is a lot of laurel. I'll bet it's spectacular in the spring when they are in bloom. Parking is an issue. The parking area at Toboggan Hill and Moundbuilder is closed and there is no street-side parking. It's all private property. We are staying in the community so we left our car at the Winter Camp community gathering area, but we do not know if that will work for everyone. Unless you are part of The Woods community, safe access may only be through the Dug Road trail. The trail beginning/ending marked on this map is just a random spot along the loop. The trail is very well marked with white blazes in the woods. However, along the gravel service roads (about a third of the total distance) it's not always clear whether you're still heading where you are going.
