    I give this trail three stars because it was very pet friendly and an easy to moderate walk, as stated. However, the trails aren't well marked and don't match what is on the park map. Didn't consider it much of a hike.

    This trail is marked by hundreds of sharp embedded rocks which make the going a bit treacherous, but the terrain is so interesting and varied as to compensate for the ankle-twisting and stumbling risks.
    I got off the trail on the way back from the Northern route in spite of trying to follow the directions closely and had to amble home on a dirt road. All-in-all it was worth the trip and I intend to return.

    Very nice park. We didn't follow the suggested routes in the e-trail precisely, but combined parts for an 8+ mile walk. The best parts for quiet and beauty were the Pond Edge Trail, Swamp Trail, and Quiet Woods Trail (go figure!). There are no bikers allowed on these, and we also did them first, which might account for the solitude. The trails over the ridges were also neat - lots of granite outcroppings and weird glacial erratics. Note: be careful on the Ridge Trail, as on the rock surfaces it's not marked and can be lost pretty easily - found again easily too, though. This could be a four-star hike if not for all the mountain bikes. Go early and you might avoid most of them.
