Parts of the trail pass over private land along a 10-foot wide easement corridor. Bikes and motorized vehicles are not allowed on the trails. This is a wonderful hike for families. Wooded trail passes over bridges, around boulders, and culminates in an open summit with western views toward Lake Champlain. Great picnic spot with bench on top. The trail crosses snowmobile trails, but is well marked.
