This is scenic and slightly challenging for hiking. I walked it a couple of times and the trail goes right by the silent witness park.

My husband and I walked this whole trail (took about an hour). Smelled delicious, informative signs along the way. Easy trail to walk. Amazing U.S.A.F. WW11 B-17 crash site, with airplane pieces in plain view.

Beautiful hiking trails in summer and awesome snowshoe trails in winter!!, easy excess and great view of gander lake, can even walk along the lake at some points, and visit the crash site along your hike.

We love to walk here. For lives it too. Some bone heads let their dogs off leash, and neglect to collect the droppings! However, it's still a beautiful trail network with several options for distance!
