Length: 4.8 mi • Est. 2 h 21 m
This is a very nice hike if you are looking for some rugged terrain and climbs. Seasonally, the fallen leaves can cover up any rocks ( and there are a lot ) on the trail so wear great hiking footwear and don't rush. If you plan on visiting near the end of the year wear bright colors as there is hunting allowed on parts of the "ORANGE" loop. There are signs posted, and a detour trail marked with "RED & WHITE" which is a challenging and fun option. Please note that the trail borders private property. Show more
