Hike Summary: A hike in Greenville proper, that follows trails used by both mountain bikers and hikers and runners. From Lake Placid the hike seemed to be mostly uphill the whole way. The trails were in great condition except for the chestnut oak acorns on the ground. It made it a little slippery. The trails marked for pedestrian only were very rough and full of roots. It made for rough footing. There were little to no views at this time of year but the hike itself was great.
