Overview

Easy, mostly wide trail with varying landscape and glacial erratics

Need to Know

Road is closed from the north, so drive up from Gold Star Highway to the south.

Description

Incredibly well-marked trail with various route options for longer or shorter hikes. Hike through the woods and enjoy some glacial erratics along the way (including an open sandy area). Great for dogs as there are a few small creeks along the way. Wide path most of the way.
