Fun trail with mixed riding surfaces. Can easily be ridden as an out and back if you park at the main schaeffer farms trailhead. The scenery is really variable, you get to ride through woods, then neighborhoods, then past a farm, and then by little seneca lake.
There used to be this massive river crossing about halfway through the trail before a bridge was built over it several years ago.
