I love the Scout Camp. I just wouldn’t call this a hiking trail in it. Most of this “trail” is the unpaved road leading into Deer Lake Scout Reservation, then a left turn at the parking lot to follow the road to the Cedars Camp Site. This is a good camp with lots of trails, but this isn’t one of them.

An easy loop trail with good views and an enjoyable hike.

Great, relatively short hike. My 8 and 11 year old kids love this trail!

One of my favorite spots in SECT. Nice easy trail, beautiful views from the bluff.

Echoing everyone, especially Matthew’s review. I did all the trail and the loop. One of my new favorites! The trail, especially on the nature loop and carters, was only a foot wide, if that. It fits the natural contours and landscape. Beautiful!
The history made it unique.

It was HOT!!! 1st bit is quite steep. Great time nice trail. Good training for my Long Trail trek in September

very quiet, scenic and easy loop. except for a very small patch which is easy but rocky. you might have to get on ur 4s at one spot

Not great and you can hear the highway the whole time.

Great easy trail loop...wouldn't classify this as "moderate". You can tell that some spots don't get as much foot traffic, but the trails are easy to follow. There are reforestation efforts going on so there are a lot of trees down across the path (but easy to get around or climb over). You do need access to get past the gate for parking, but that's easy to get from the town. Loads of mushrooms, pine trees, ferns, and toads along the way!

Beautiful views, and great hike..

Blue/Yellow trail- Steep climb, worth every second for the view.

nice trail, walked our 2 dogs there....good shading, not too hot.

Nice experience

It was pretty enough but the trail is overgrown and hasn’t had upkeep in a while it seems. The trail takes you on the edge of some backyards, there is highway noise the whole trail, and the last part of the loop is the actual road.

Love this place; some steep parts but a great hike.

A gem

I am not a regular hiking person. It took me one hour forty five minutes to finish the blue trail. It was rocky, a lot of up and down. It's not easy for beginners. But if you want a good workout, this is the one. By the way, there are a lot of mosquitoes. Just be prepared.

great place to go trail running. some easy hills. great terrain, but people..please pick up after your dogs.

Meadow with flowers followed by the quaint falls makes a nice little hike. Beautiful July morning to be outside.

Nice loop/ walk.

beautiful trail! the view at the top is the best. my great Dane loves it as well

Wider then average and better maintained then average trails make it easier to minimize exposure to ticks and poison ivy. Curvy and hilly but not steep. A pleasant walk that’s not to long or to short. My dog and I enjoyed it and will be back.

nice woody trails,lots of mosquitoes.
easy to get lost for a beginner.

Great hike. Mostly flat but some small ups & downs. Good relaxing stroll with great falls. My son & I hiked the orange (main) trail out to Big Falls and it was gorgeous! When you get to the end of the trail, walk up the road about 300 feet and the trail continues on the right. Falls are right beyong the parking lot & field. They can be accessed even if you don't hike.

The path was overgrown and we couldn't even walk it

Great easy walk for dogs lots of benches for rest

Make sure you have a regional water authority pass and you’ll have the gate codes to get in. Beautiful trails- obviously not well traveled as parts are overgrown and lots of trees down on the trail

Clean, quiet
