great little hike to start off the holiday weekend. trail is very well marked. view from the top is amazing!

Basic, but well maintained trails. The trails are an easy hike, and are built to ATV width. This is a great place for a quick run/outing with the family.

Million dollar view for such a local kid friendly hike. I also saw a fisher king here once.

easy trail, nice view from firetower

Such a good little trail! I saw so many dogs and I fell in love with each one. This trail is definitely an ankle breaker if you don’t watch your step. Overall a beautiful/leisurely walk

Had a lovely time here! I am driving across America in my VW camper so I am always looking for places to park for free and be close to nature. We climbed up the fire tower and cooked breakfast & coffee up there on our little stove, such a wonderful experience.

Short easy hike with a wonderful firetower payoff!! Enjoyed it very much even though it was April and felt like mid February. Also in addition to the 360 degree views from the tower I saw 2 Barred owls!!

Nice short hike with a very nice reward at the top. The 360 degree view from the top of the fire tower is worth it. Great short hike for kids.

Nice easy hike with small ups and downs. a few wooden bridges that cross a small stream. There are parking lots / trail heads at either end of the green trail.

There's a great fire tower to climb. Bring bug spray!

Great trail for a quick hike and a little exercise. Ferns cover the forest floor, shelter and fire tower at the top. A little hike with a bit of everything.

Muddy this time of year but still a nice relaxing hike with great view

has anyone gotten to this trail using Engel Road?

Quick, fun. Very icy & muddy on an unseasonable 70 degree February day - spikes would have helped a lot. Still only took around an hour and a half. More wildlife tracks than human, and great views from the tower!

With the snow and ice I did lose the trail a few times in the middle. Keep a good eye. Nothing cool about getting lost on a mile-long trail!

Very enjoyable easy hike. My dog loves it here. A great pond with a ton of beaver activity.

Pleasant spot for a relatively short, varied hike, with the option to extend your hike exploring all the side trails. The meadow portion of the trail is lovely and the view from the picnic tables overlooking the beaver pond is quintessential bucolic splendor.

**** There was a TON of bear scat along the main trail this August. Just something to be mindful but not afraid of. It's always a good idea to do a little bear encounter refresher.

I love this trail, my family and I use it atleast 2-3 a week during warm weather months. It is great for dogs. There is a small pond located near the top of the trail, by the firepower. There is also a cool campsite area with a lean-to and a fire pit if you are looking to camp. I have not explored any of the side trails yet, just the main foot path.

Good hike! About 45 minutes from Delmar. 2 miles round trip. Cool fire tower.

Great trail! Very muddy after it rains thought
