Really nice trail, clear of most debris and well marked even when intersecting with other trails.
Note that the 3.7 Mile distance is one way! I didn’t read the description well enough and thought it was 3.7 total (out and back).

When you get past the prairie the pines are a great site for overnight
Made one last night cheers

Great trail, well kept, and easy to hike, i am a big girl but love to be in the great outdoors and it’s nice to enjoy the trail without getting so winded

Trail is well marked and maintained. Had a slight but working cell signal which allowed google maps to track me. Although I couldn’t get the All trails app to work while out there. Lots of areas that post private property signs which made picking a campsite a bit more tricky. Hiked five miles in and setup camp just east of Poplar ave. Was hoping to camp near Crofoot Lake but too many private property signs were littering the area so I doubled back.
Did this hike the second week of November and honestly I think it would have been a bit better to go a bit earlier in the season. Most of the leaves had already fallen from the trees. Still a beautiful hike though and will definitely be back.

We hiked this section out-and-back with a small group. The terrain was moderate with no obstructions. The entire section is off-road, including the straight section which looks like a road. This section is between two parcels of private property and is being graciously provided by the owners so please be respectful.
