We were there as day hikers. It took us a bit over an hour to do the Loop trail plus the Ledge trail. We are 50-somethings and I was wearing sandals. This is a nice hike, but not all that easy. Steep in spots and...More

The forest itself is nice, with some decent trails, but hikers beware, this is ATVers world. If you don't want to deal with the roar of engines and choking fumes go elsewhere. The campground just plain stinks. Lower level is supposedly for trailers but being...More

Wonderful spot to run through. Don't try and go on foot in the winter. Roads are closed and unplowed.

The campground is a good place to stay for only a night or two. The sites do not offer much privacy, but there are hot showers and outdoor sinks for washing dishes. The best part is the proximity of Tanglewood for shows.
