Rating this trail I have two ratings for it. Frist I would have to give it just 2 stars for hiking. It would be a great cross country ski route but for hiking it was just like walking in our back yard. No sites to see just woods. However, I give it a 5 stars for marking the trails. There is no way you could get lost. I would recommend it for someone that has a difficult hiking and still wants to get out in the woods. This is a simple walk and there are several different trails to take.
