Tie Hack Trail

Tie Hack Trail is a 3-mile summer use and a 5-mile winter use trail.  It is a fairly primitive route that incorporates old logging roads and in some stretches there is just minimal clearing through the trees; however, it is marked with arrows making it is easier to follow.  Please be aware and respectful of private property while using this trail.
