This place might be in my top 5 for local hikes. It was beautiful! It could also be because it was the first nice day we had in a looooong time but it was still pretty even if it was really muddy. The other reviews are accurate - the trail isn't always easy to see. But if you use the app to track your trail it is fine, or if you just keep the pond to one side of you, you will be good. There is another starting point off Stirnie Road we passed - a bigger parking lot so that could be an option. It would also cut the hike down as getting to the pond and back was half the hike. Great area if you want to picnic, too. I highly recommend it.
