Manor trail in Ringwood Manor State Park
After seeing Dan Chazin's overview of this trail I decided to check it out: Dan has always given very accurate information about the trails he previews, so it sounded interesting and relatively easy. I have to say the trail- even this early in the year (mid March) was well maintained and blazed. Very easy to follow also since at least half of it follows old mining roads. Even though there was the occasional muddy patch to negotiate it was not unreasonable, especially considering the time of year. We made it a point to view each point of interest Dan mentioned. This would make a good family or scout hike ( no younger than Webelo 1 due to the distance) since it is fairly easy to follow terrain wise as well as blaze wise. For a relatively easy yet interesting glimpse into the history of the area, I give this trail a very high rating. Great work previewing as usual, Dan!
