cross country skiing
This was a beautiful hike. I wouldn't call it easy, moderate maybe? I definitely wouldn't bring small children or dogs though!
We did the children's area first as we weren't sure what it was about, The fitness areas were fun to do but I'd skip that unless you do indeed have children with you.
Definitely enjoyable: good workout, lovely views, but, and I do admit that this must be my fault, once youre at the top, you can easily veer off the trail. I'm a very new hiker and tried to pay close attention to the app trail map, which was very helpful, but somehow, though we followed the blue and yellow markers on the trees, we ended up far from the path. We ended up having to make a semi-crazy climb to get back to the trail, since we were headed west toward route 9, and it is not safe to walk along that highway (especially with 2 dogs). We found the trail again, all was well, and counted it as an absurd/hilarious adventure. And if anyone could possibly suggest what we did wrong, I'm all ears!
Ashley R. on Pack Demonstration Forest Loop Trail
This was a nice, easy walk in an old growth forest...even a little educational! At the end of the trail it tells you to turn right through the gate, but if you first go left there is a memorial grave to the Packs, and up a bit further is the start to the Pack lake.
