It's rare for a big city to have such a deep and beautiful forest one can explore. Kincaid is an experience I wish I could share with all. Photos of the woods never do it justice.

This is a fantastic trail! Very beautiful and peaceful. Their are quite a few trail runners here, even with it just being the end of April presently, so i'm sure their are even more in the summer months. I would consider this hike to be moderate. Potters Marsh is 3.3 miles to your left (at the bridge) and rainbow creek is 4.2 miles. I decided to go towards rainbow creek. Be very prepared for mud and also alot of UP on your way there.
