Completed the entire loop a few weeks ago. This is one of my favorite trails in the area. Some unexpected beauty. You will walk along and cross a stream a few times so I recommend good waterproof footwear depending on the season.

The trail was awesome! We loved it! There was some issues with fallen trees and the rangers needing to remove fallen trees, resulted in a mile detour (that we did not take) or what was referred to as Mud City. Lucky for us, the ground was frozen and through that part there was no mud.

The ups and downs were a killer but was well worth it, even during the winter time the scenery is beautiful. It was definitely a harder hike and took us a good 3 plus hours to make it through the whole thing.

We took our three dogs as well, and they loved every minute of it. They were worn out for a good day afterward! We can't wait to come back and try the other longer trails in the area.

Have to agree with others that the reroute looks and is terrible to walk on. Also got confused on another reroute earlier (we went clockwise) in the trail. The end also had quite a bit of reforestation sections that just looked awful, but the lakes and remainder of the trail are quite nice

We did a short hike and loved it! Beautiful scenery, glad we wore water proof shoes! We will be back again to do the full 10.5.

Excellent trail, although much of the trail utilizes a service road. The highlights of the back country are, in my opinion, located on the trail section located east of Low Gap Road. Several pine tree stands and creek crossings were the scenic portions of this trail on a mid-January day.

Trail is well marked. Was able to filter water from the creek beds. Well travelled and worth spending a night on. Thanks to the Hoosier Hikers for the work they do to maintain the trail.

Currently 11.4 miles instead of 9.4 due to a detour.

Truly one of the better scenic hikes in the area. However probably 4 miles or so of the trail is on gravel service road which is all around awful to walk on. I was able to do the hike in about 3 hours. Also, there is a lot of hunting around the trail this time of the year so make sure to wear bright colors! All around it is well marked and a great backcountry hike.
