This is my 'everyday' trail. It's very dog friendly, river for them to get in, open fields complete with buzzing bees and dancing butterflies, enough ridge climbing to get your heart rate up without taking the fun out of the hike. VERY friendly people on this trail.
The guide is 100% accurate. The hike was pleasant. Parts of the White Trail on both sides of the park have great views. I'd give this 5 stars but the covered bridge was less than expected. We also liked the Yellow Trail that is also mentioned in the guide. We went here in July to hike but they were having a Civil War weekend so we watched the skirmishes, encampments, and exhibits instead. They also have a Revolutionary War weekend in October. Both weekends there is a charge. The park itself has many buildings used for milling, blacksmithing, and gun making during our history. Guns were made during the Revolution. There was a Civil War skirmish here over a Confederate enlisted man killed by the general store owner. The park alone is interesting.
Trails runs mostly along river. Beautiful. Trail, in places, was unpassable because of heavy rains. Skirted along side of open field and then re-connected with blue blaze trail.
Awesome hike includes covered bridge and lots of great river views. Perfectly detailed in the guide. Great historic area to explore.
