“A complete and somewhat challenging Chestnut Ridge loop that goes deep into the woods with beautiful views.”— JP Maxx
This trail is great for casual runners looking for a bit more of a challenge and some exercise. This path is also ideal for athletic dogs and will be sure to tire them out. This run is one of my favorites because it's fun yet difficult, has lots of beautiful views, two spots that cross streams, and passes through several types of terrain and forest areas.
Portions of the trail go near picnic areas and other portions are deeper and more secluded. It's overall a beautiful trail, and it's a nice loop that leaves you back at your parking spot at the end. Great for dogs that are up to the challenge. Highly recommend bringing a backpack with water for both humans and dogs - a collapsible dog bowl was very helpful.
