it was an ok easy trail
Great for young Girl Scouts!!!
Low to moderate difficulty, easy to follow well laid out markers between trails. No bikes.
great system of trails. nice linkage to the North Country trail system. good amount of animal, bird and reptile viewing. can keep it easy, can step it up (on the ridge and glacier trail links to North Country Trail) for decent short climbs. I visit here often. low traffic of hikers.
Lots of little trails that you can weave together to create a hike that ranges from a few tenths of a mile to five or more miles through terrain that is mostly flat to rolling, with one area that has some contour to it and might be considered "moderate." The forested areas are standard second and third growth for this part of the state, but what is interesting is the island of prairie ecosystem that is preserved here, with numerous species that are not found elsewhere in the region. The wildflowers are great. They make a big deal about a population of Massaugua (sp?) rattlesnakes and--sure enough--we had the good fortune to see one of the little guys sunning himself in the middle of the trail. Watch where you step--they're endangered. Easy to digest this place in a few hours--we combined it with a stop at McConnell's Mill. Well worth the time.
