Route Type

Loop

Added by Christine Granger

A six mile hike featuring wildlife, forests, springs, a lake, and a fen.

This trail is about six miles long and features primitive campsites, woods, and a lake. Mostly gravel with a steep beginning section. After hiking a couple of miles there's a branch off with a sign post to continue on the hiking trail or head down to the lake. Farther down the hiking section of trail there is a spring and a fen section of trail. It's a good idea to take a picture at the trailhead of the map because while the trail is mostly a loop, there are some turn offs and dead ends. Horseback riding is also allowed here.
