This was my favorite trail of this system, the historic aspect adds to it, highly recommended in the off season

I was really excited about this trail, but I was sadly disappointed. The trail is not well marked at all and we got lost (not terribly, just went a wrong way ) twice. But the worse was the POISON IVY. It turned into a stressful hike because we had little kids who do not know how to identify poison ivy, but it also was bad because it was IN our path, not just around it. we had to walk on poison ivy for most of the way. The trail itself its beautiful. we would go again maybe in the winter, when there is no poison ivy , but I would also take some ribbon to mark our way.

enjoyed the hike

Flat looping trail with lots of shade. We did this with the grand kids and they had no troubles! Great hike for kids. They had to carry the 1 year old as I think the stroller would have been tough on this trail. The weeds are starting to cover certain parts so maintenance is needed.

All in all a great Mother’s Day hike!

Super easy trail to follow. Short distance and a loop which makes it nice for all ages.
We were disappointed that the information signs for stations 8, 9 &10 were missing.

I found this trail to be very interesting. Although not particularly scenic compared to other trails in DeGray Lake state park, the history behind this trail fascinates me. The trail follows an old narrow gauge railroad used during logging operations over 100 years ago. It is a nice short walk in the woods.

Very nice trail that wanders through a forest at the western edge of DeGray Lake Resort State Park. This trail is rockier than any other trail at this state park and probably has the most elevation change. That being said, the trail is not very difficult and is a nice walk in the woods.
