Snead Farm Loop Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Appropriate for families, this hike takes you to buildings used by the Snead family when they homesteaded in the area. It was active between the 1850s and 1960s, at which time the final land owners sold the farm to the park.

The visit to Snead Farm is a trip back in time. At one time the owners worked this 200-acre piece of land as farmland and as an apple orchard. The park bought the land in 1962. The remnants here are quite visible; the barn still stands, as does the root cellar. The stone remains of an old house fill an open area. With but little imagination, you can recognize the difficulty these people had in clearing and farming this land."

Ok hike for a brief trip outdoors, the best part in the hike is the small vista that overlooks Gooney Run with a small clearing on the trail and just above for sitting around. I have uploaded a picture. Hike is not challenging at all. Bypass Snead farm at the fireroad to go straight up to the overlook of Gooney run makes the hike only 2 miles from vistor center.
