The first quarter of this travel is a nice wide paved multi-purpose trail. After that, it drops off into a varying mix of dirt, gravel, or some kind of tarp over gravel. Once you're into the woods on the dirt trail it becomes a wonderful trail that feels far more remote than it really is. There is some trail finding difficulty at a few points. It's somewhat flat with lots of space between the trees so it seems like there could be many trails. Show more
