This is a "beginner trail" and I'm definitely a beginner---this was a great trail! I'm not in the best shape either but it was fairly challenging to me, my husband & our in-shape 14 year old daughter on Memorial Day weekend with high-70 degree temps and fairly high humidity. The parking lot at the bottom is small so get there early. The trail starts with the beautiful little Lenape Lake. From there the trail spilts---to the left is the White Blaze Trail (narrower at that area) & to the right is a fire access road which is very wide and paved a little at the start. I would recommend what we did: take the White Blaze Trail on the way UP and the fire access road on the way DOWN. You'll save your knees! This trail is 2 miles long but 700 feet of elevation---so basically like walking up a giant staircase for 2 miles. At the top of the trail, you will again intersect the fire access road and you can start your passage down. Wear proper clothing and foot gear---we saw some people heading up in jeans---big mistake! Bug spray and cold water are also must-haves! I would take a camel-back for a beverage so both hands are always free. I'm not graceful but I slipped a few times on rocky ground. Total time was 3 hours or so. We were in no hurry and I had to stop a few times for 3 or 4 minute breaks. It's a great work-out with tremendous screnery---we loved it!
