What a perfect trail for families with kids or older adults! Plenty of rocky spots and mini caves for our preteens to climb while waiting for the little ones to catch up. Lots of areas with gently flowing water, so pack a change of shoes for everyone. We found unusual mushrooms and cool small creatures.

There are some really interesting spots on this trail. There are some overgrown spots. Be prepared for ticks and spiders!

Got all the way there to find out that it is indeed not accessible year round. Went 2/21/18 and the gates were closed.

There is a lot to see on this short loop. Features include old mine shafts, caves, a pond, and a cemetery. The beginning of the trail is a bit overgrown but it gets better as you get close to the old logging road. There were traces of bears on the trail and that is something that you may want to be aware of. The trail is well marked and easy to hike.
