    Nice easy loop. We did about 4 miles and the crossing of streams was lovely. Saw a few deer and our dog had a blast in the mud.

    Very nice trail that's an easy walk. Mostly former farmland (19th & early 20th century) so lot's of new growth mixed in with old hardwoods. The creek can be placid or active depending upon rainfall. Good parking off Mt. Sinai Road next to the New Hope Creek bridge. Adjacent to Duke Forest Korstian Division and it's myriad trails but they unfortunately do not inter-connect. Trail follows New Hope Creek for much of it's route. There is a loop that veers off and is a bit of a steeper walk over a nearby rise. Quiet and cool in the summer when foliage is quite dense. Excellent fall foliage site. Several benches throughout the length dedicated to the children of trail supporters. Not as busy as many Duke Forest trails but then many folks just don't know what they're missing. :-)
