Definitely go counter clockwise if you want an easier path. When you go clockwise, it starts along the creek on flat ground with a bit or gravel, then you go uphill and downhill and up hill again where there is a lot of large rocks. Good cardio workout. Once you reach the top, there is a bench. Then you walk a little less than a mile on flat dirt and there is another bench, right before it goes back downhill, where there are a few large rocks, but not too bad at all. Beautiful view of the woods. Saw a few deer and my dog loved the path. There is also an off trail path next to the kiln, but I don't think it reaches anywhere. Expected a little more from the creek, as there wasn't a lot of water but it was very clear. All together, it was a good workout but a bit boring for me. Still scenic though, despite the seed ticks. Be careful for them because I got them after my hike here. They look like baby ticks.

Some nice challenging parts. A wee bit boring for the other parts.

Loved it. Dogs could take a dip in the creek for much of the hike.
