A great loop that gives you the tour of the best that Danby State Forest has to offer.
The start, as marked here, has a big steep ascent. It is recommended to warm-up before heading in.
In general, trail is singletrack, with a few small creek crossings.
This is the commonly traveled trail through Danby State Forest. It contains some nice climbs and some spots for crazy descents.
The trail is relatively easy to follow (look for the orange blazes). Just keep an eye open to not wander off to the Finger Lakes Trail. You'll find hikers, runners, and dog walkers most times of year, so stay alert. There is roadside parking for 3+ cars right by the indicated trail start.
