Great trail - peaceful, excellent overlooks, and enough scrambles and climbs to get a good workout. This trail unexpectedly turned out to be one of my favorites.

It actually wasn't as rough as I thought it would be but it's really hidden which I liked. It wasn't packed with a ton of people.

The hike was an awesome experience! My friends and l might have started on the wrong end, and gotten lost a couple of times, but we were able to find our way and make it to the end! There is a great variety of landscapes and the sights of nature combined with rusted metal and barbed wire fences create an interesting story that has to be taken in! The wildlife there is also vibrant, where my friends and l witnessed the usual birds and squirrels but also saw a hawk and several lizards along the way! If you live nearby and want to experience a piece of forgotten history this is definitely a great hike to go on!!

Very rocky. Technical in the sense of having to navigate slow, sinuous rocky sections. Didn't find much flow on south side. Best experienced with a group. Fun artifacts to explore.

Started out lame and became great. The western side by the airport was dull and colorless with lots of pointless switchbacks as we were not on bikes which these trails were clearly made for. Once we climbed the small mountain to join the eastern side, however, the hike immediately became more interesting with a large variation in surroundings, including some very odd abandoned rusted out mysterious structures. The trails on the ridge were still clearly made for mountain bikes, but even the rare biker that did struggle by added to the entertainment.

I did ride the trails in both directions. There are sections that are very technical, but such a fun to ride. Make sure you have a full suspension bike. A hard tail will shake your organs up. Plan on at least an hour and a half if you are a moderate rider. For more advanced riders, you can probably do it in an hour.

Jungle Habitat is surrounded be an Erie history straight out of Weird NJ. The left over animal cages & broken down buildings remind you of a place that was at one point a huge attraction. The hike is fun and easy but the visuals is what people go for the most. Really neat stuff.

Has anyone hiked this with a dog? ...recommend? I have a large 75 lb. She's done many with me - steep and also bouldering. Just looking for feedback before I attempt. Thanks!

Short but nice hike. Some scrambling. Tough footing. Nice views. Can be slippery.
