Much of this route is a great exercise walk because it isn’t overly strenuous yet progresses at a steady grade through an interesting variety of terrain. Even though you’ll begin by climbing up onto a rugged ridgeline, trails are carved into the terrain, making it feel effortless passing through dense evergreen groves, wooded marsh, narrow cliffs, and wideopen meadows. Trails on this route are clearly marked and have detailed maps posted at most intersections. This route begins flat on White Trail for a short distance. You’ll quickly turn left onto the Red Trail, crossing an earthen dam that appears to be part of a flood control system. Behind the dam will be an extensive marsh to your right with a sizable stream flowing under the dam.
