To start, I'm from WA state, so that's my point of reference. This hike (past Pickell Park) starts on a trail that's basically a field with some flattened parts that look like a car drove over it and may be more walkable. Every so often, you end up in situations like this, or where there are fallen trees or it requires some bushwhacking to find the actual trail, which made it quite an, shall we say, interesting hike. I'm unsure if the trail is generally unmaintained, or if it's relatively new, or if it's just not very trafficked, but I'm glad I downloaded the AllTrails map before heading out there because I would have definitely gotten lost otherwise. Although the trail looks like it might get close to a lake, there aren't any great views of it. The trail itself is super overgrown at a lot of places, so I'd recommend long pants or gaiters. Lots of flat or downhill parts, so all of the elevation gain happens in very short sections, meaning they're pretty steep, and plenty of rocky parts. The path we took: Blue > Red > White > Yellow > White > Blue to make a loop from the Pickell Park parking lot.

Began in the Old Mtn Rd parking lot. We did a big loop taking White Trail > Red Trail > Blue Trail > White Trail > Yellow Trail. Steep & rocky terrain. At a decent pace it's a good workout. Mostly in the shade. Wish there were more accessible vistas. Definitely recommend to those who like a challenge underfoot.

some views. lots of leaves (I know- the woods) very slippery underfoot in places and some areas where trails are closed but visible. great little hike 53 though.

Nice hike. One section had a nice, steep incline. Very steep. It went on for a while, which was great. We only went to the top, then headed back down. I’ll be back to do the whole trail.

Started at Old Mtn Road parking lot with initial climb over ridge and down to Cushetunk Tr. and walked SE to hook back up on ridge line to White trail. Thought we'd be closer to water but not so much. Started towards peak near White/Blue peak area but rain on it's way. 50 degrees and no rain in f-cast- oh well. Wet or cold okay, not wet and cold. Little rocky in spots. Trail mostly leaf covered but no problem keeping on. Dog loved it.

we liked the trail and the landscape. It is a fun hike, some rocky parts that are fun for kids. only complaint would be that some parts of the path are covered by thorny bushes and overgrown grass. tough for our dog. quiet, we barely encountered other hikers.
