This miserable section of the Horseshoe, following power lines, is best avoided by hikers and bikers. Most of it is tick-infested, chest-high grass with frequent muddy swamps (ridden 6/28/2017, received 5 large ticks, 3 dug in by the time I arrived back at my car).

Disclaimer

CAUTION: Tall grass, ticks, swampy mud.
