Summary:
Mostly gravel/fire roads/doubletrack. But there is about a mile of singletrack that is relatively flat, but is some of the tightest you'll find. And it goes through very high marsh growth which is unusual for most trails. In the summer you'll see birds, exotic insects, deer and some other critters. Great for the beginner or just to unwind for an hour.

Recommended Route:
From Delaware County: Baltimore Pike to Oak Ave. in Clifton Heights (Home Depot). South on Oak, left on Hook Rd, right on Lindbergh Blvd for a block, and entrance is on right.

Summary:
there are so many trails in the refuge, and you can go across rt. 420 and take more of the trail. it's more than 7 miles, more like 15 or so

Summary:
Ok trail. Basically for beginners. Nonpaved. Mostly flat, gravel, some rocks, roots, and mud. Some parts run parallel with I-95. LOTS of wildlife, careful, you may be attacked, lol...
