Some great trails all around this area. The Piper House Gate one a long steep descent, nothing too technical or difficult, but great fun. I prefer the Blackamoor descent, which takes you through a stream at the bottom. Check out also, Lady Canning's Plantation, which is close by here and has some purpose built trails for people of all ages and abilities. Oh yes, and finally, a note for the guys who run this website, can you learn to spell properly, or run things through a spell check before posting them? The word to go down is "descent" not "decent" as you have on here. "Decent" means something totally different - it means "respectable".

Rocks. Lotsa rocks. Watch out for roots covered in leaves in the winter.
