There are some beautiful spots on this trail, but the rocks and roots can make it tricky to navigate. It is also quite wet. Proper waterproof hiking boots are a must-have. The boardwalk is in need of repair in a few spots.

A gorgeous hike with snow packed trails, lots of ups and downs and some icy patches. We wore crampons and had no trouble at all. There are a few benches scattered along the route which encompasses several different ecosystems. Takes the full 6 hours suggested...More

This is actually a pretty challenging hike. Couple that with insane amounts of mud (especially near Mizzy lake), with roots and rocks almost constantly through the forest portion of the walk and it calls for a tough day! Be prepared to get muddy! The highlights...More

This trail is very rugged and is best enjoyed if you're prepared - mentally and physically. It gives you a taste of everything - streams, lakes, wetlands, boardwalks, an old rail trail, and the very real possibility of seeing wildlife. However, with it being fall...More
