For the most part, this is a large, single track loop trail that skirts around the top perimeter of a shallow ravine ( less than 100 ft deep) . There aren't any cut-through or short cut connectors, so once you're in, you're pretty much committed to an 11 mi. loop, minus a few miles at the xc ski hut or snowmobile trail that you can cut out since they adjoin to the parking lots. It's a large park with a lot of parking areas and road access at the beginning/end of trailheads. No signs pointing the way to trailhead since you can access it at many points through the trees, so look for xc ski hut as a homebase- once you're out on the loop the kiosk maps are vague.
TONS OF ROOTS & the trail rides VERY close to lip of ravine most of the way, not great for beginners. Very well maintained, a few brook crossings keep it interesting & nice views. There are hikers & runners, but very courteous!
