A flower-packed, cowpie'd section of the North Country National Scenic Trail through a few Sandy Hills.”
— Kevin Zavoral
This section of the North Country National Scenic Trail is more wooded and hilly in the NE section, and things can get wet after a good soak south of Hwy 27. Overall, this is a fun and scenic section of trail.
Beat the sand factor by either powering through the stuff, or by going after a good rain, or when it's cooler out and the ground is a bit firmer.
Watch out for people on horse-back closer to the Oak Leaf Loop Trail, and be sure to leave the cattle gates as you find them.
