“An easy run through the woods - a great beginner trail.”— John Simon
Going CW it begins with a small climb, but after that it's mostly flat with just some mild grades. The trail is well marked and passes through a nice forest and by an overgrown meadow and then down a fire road for a downhill finish. Nothing technical and very few roots or rocks.
The trail is mostly a sandy gravel, but there is little or no actual sand to slog though and is fairly hard packed the whole way.
Brown Trail meets up with the Green Trail about 2 miles in, which eventually takes you back to the parking lot. The easiest way back to the parking lot would be to take Plantation Trail to Forest Road.
