One of the best trails in the state, if not the best. Shaded almost the entire trail with pristine views of lakes, ponds, and woodland areas. The only negative is on the southern end of the trail(last 9 miles) there is nowhere to go for water or to buy something to drink so if you do the entire trail there is an 18 mile stretch with no spot to get something to drink, so bring extra.
