Nice! Shaded, well marked, narrow, but not busy. Definitely will return to complete the secondary trails

Easy walk along mostly-established paths. Some areas had flat bridges over muddy areas. Liked that this looping trail offered several types of views: water, forestry, fields. Lots of evidence of beaver activity around the pond.

Great for mountain biking.

Great trail. I didn’t follow this path and I adventured out. The kiln area can get a bit busy but the majority of the walk we were alone. Lots of little hidden spots. Bug spray is recommended. Dogs on leash. Loved it.

Overall, it was a really beautiful hiking spot. It was so neat to see all the old structures and mills that were built many years ago. I went around 9:30 AM and didn’t really see many people until the end of my hike (around 10:30), so it was a peaceful walk with my dog. Ticks weren’t too bad, only found 3 totally between me and my dog. However, the trails were very confusing! There was many choices on which path to take. I somehow ended up in someone’s backyard and just went out that way on the main road back to the parking lot. If it’s your first time, definitely take a trail map on the way in from the kiosk or use the map on your phone at the website https://boltontrails.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/6-Rattlesnake-March-2020.pdf . When following, just be mindful of what trails you took (ex. 3g, 2e, etc.) to remember where you came from. I do plan on heading back to see all the things I missed, just more organized and educated for the next time!

Muddy at the beginning, forcing off trail with a lot of poison ivy so be careful.

Very neat and interesting to see the old quarries etc. and loved that plants and trees were marked! My family loved it we will definately be going back

This trail is narrow, and winding. I found it scenic, as it crosses a stream a couple times and passes by a small quarry. There is a small hill which provides a little elevation change.

This was a pretty walk, even on a chilly and windy day. The water is very nice and the trails are wide.

Good hike, not many people, and great beaver population in the ponds. Lots of plant varieties as well. It's a nice place for what it is. Definitely not moderate--this trail is easy aside from a few hills. Perfect for a short or half-day hike.

Great, beautiful trail. Easy to get lost in the beauty and feel like your deep into the woods and a part of the history of native and revolutionary war traffic that once traveled through it.

Lovely trail and pond. The trail was muddy in a few places due to all the recent rain, but the dog really enjoyed it! Merits future visits for sure.

Beautiful place for a kid-friendly hike. Trail was flooded and muddy in several places but were able to get around those areas no problem.

Really nice 3-mile loop. The lake around the 1/2 way point was pretty and had a huge beaver dam. A couple good hills for the glutes! Little muddy after a day of snow in April, but nothing we couldn’t work around, even though I just had on sneakers. Really enjoyed this place!

Pretty busy for 5pm but nice trail. Hard to believe there are so many trails right off 117!

All the trail markings were the same, so I got turned off onto some smaller trails I did not want to go on. If someone made the markers different colors, it would be easier to navigate.
