There are so many trails on this one and even with a recording open it was hard to follow at times. We ended up hiking at least 10 miles. At one point we got so annoyed with having to turn back that we just climbed down the over grown side of the rock and crossed over to the other side where another trail was. Even with getting lost a few times, I will still go back and try again.

This first half (counter-clockwise) was amazing. Awesome views, great forest, beautiful. The second half was noisy with lawn mowers, weed whackers and then descended to the road -lots intersecting roads and trails so pay attention. If I did again, I would just turn around and hike back the way I came rather that do the loop.

I did the 11.1 mile version from rt. 80 The road walk was a little much. Like 3+ miles of it. Otherwise it was a nice hike. Not too much to see, no vista's etc... But nonetheless it was pleasant. No elevation to speak of, good one to stretch your legs out. I finished at long Island Sound at Chittenden Park. That was nice ending at the water.

The directions on this app as of June 2019 takes you two a parking area in front of a pick your own strawberry farm. At this parking lot, there are two overgrown trails with lots of roots from wash out, they’re so narrow that mountain biking or even walking would have been too difficult. What we didn’t know is there are very wide nice trails for mountain biking or hiking then bike up the very steep hill to the dead end of that road. Unfortunately, we didn’t see this until we biked 5 miles along Farmhouse rd, three mile course rd, etc. There are numerous entry points to trails, one that we found was at the corner of Sas hill road and 146. But the wash out and rocks made it too difficult to attempt. I can’t give this a fair score because I didn’t find a useable entrance until we were at the end of our bike ride. I’ll have to check it out another time. But just remember to bike to the dead end after parking and you’ll find the entrance.

Most of the trail was very well kept! If it rained the night before heavily the path by the lake will have a lot of flooded spots. We saw a ton of tiny tadpoles in some of the run off flooded pools on the path and some bullfrogs jumping across your feet, so definitely pay close attention so you don't step on them! :D

This trail is okay- not 5 stars, very anticlimactic and extremely buggy. Nothing special, just a cut through the woods

Only views are within the first 2 miles. Had to walk along road and behind property for a bit. Barry anyone on the trail. All that being said, I continued the loop back up to the very first view point to enjoy the scenery at the end of my hike

I loved it here! Lots of water, Rocky woods, open fields, and many birds! I saw cormorants, snowy egrets, and Redwing blackbirds to name a few. Very pretty and no one around on a drizzly Sunday! Did 3.7 miles- it is a loop if you follow the blue blazes and trail map.
