Tried to follow the recorded path above but eventually the trail was too overgrown to continue along what looks like old railroad foundation so we turned back thinking it was going to be an out and back hike but then we found a marker for the rest of the loop! I was very pleased by the varied terrain coming back. It can be difficult to navigate at times but the orange markers make it easier. Someone must still have land use rights because there are lots of deer blinds which is kind of worrisome but most looked old and no longer in use. Also there was an area filled with large appliance garbage (TV, washer, dryer, etc.) but not sure if this was on private property so I don't know if it can be cleaned up by Niches or not? 7/10 would hike again only if in the area.

I would characterize this trail as more moderate than easy. if your looking for a nice, well traveled state park easy loop, this is not it. This trail is clear and open in some spots, but other areas are overgrown and more difficult to navigate. That said, if you are looking for a nice hike off the beaten path with no one else around, this is it. You'll want hiking boots, bug spray, and a stick to clear the cob webs ahead.

A nice quiet hike. A little over grown in some spots, but the trail is marked well and it's still easy to follow.
