On a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being hard, I would rate this a 3.5. It was a beautiful 3 hour hike covering 7.25 miles of lush, dense woods. The lower leg of the hike was along the Little Beaver Creek providing lots of scenic views . Sprinkled throughout the way were historic locks that allowed the transportation of goods from the South to the North. Overall, a great trail!!!
