Beautiful hike following a creek the whole way and rewarded at the end by awesome lake.. ended up being about 7 miles to the lake and back, I thought we would hike through an old 1800s cemetery but that's a little east of the trail but highly recommend this hike!!!
If you are like me and only hike once or twice a year, this is a hard loop. I really enjoyed my hike and there were some really nice swimming holes if you a there in the summer. Also take water the drought has dried up everything between adams gap and turnipseed.
