I expected this trail to be far more rustic than it actually was. There were stone steps (nice expensive ones) at almost every incline, sometimes 40 or more at a time. It really took away from the natural experience for me and made it feel like a zoo with no animals. It is definitely an upper moderate hike that forced a few people in our party to sit and rest on some of the longer uphill steps.

We hiked the ravine cliff trail along with the beech hill trail along with the paved loop leading to both as well as the new carriage trail that isn't shown on this map. This is a truly beautiful park, one of the best ones we've ever been to.

Since this map was prepared they've added another 9 miles of trails, one going around a beautiful lake that can be accessed from either the main trailhead if you want a hike of at least 4 miles with one fairly difficult stretch of .66 miles uphill, or from the Hog Mountain parking area (new) for a 2.2 mile moderate hike.

We hiked the 4 mile one last Saturday, Oct. 28., some did the far left loop shown on the map for a 5 mile hike.

There's still one more trail that we want to do, but all total it will be about 7 miles so we need to save it for a long afternoon.
