Description

The trail starts off behind the Ingersoll Ice Arena by crossing a wooden bridge which is slanted due to erosion, but is stable. The trail starts off rough but becomes clearer and better maintained, though there are several steep uphill sections. When you get to the crossroad, you can either turn left or right to follow the loop in either direction. Leaving to the right, the trail begins to curves left and then takes a steep downhill. This is the first of many up and downs along the trail. There are some unofficial established trails that cross the main trail; however, the main trail is blazed in white/light-blue and easy to follow.

Wooden bridges take you through varied forests with hardwoods, conifers, wetlands and streams. Depending on the time of year, the understory may include lush green ferns or even red trillium.

Follow the white blazes, not the red ones. The red ones lead into people's back yards.
