needed this!!!

Fantastic trail.

Beautiful scenery. Would have enjoyed it more if there was a water source to stop at. But otherwise, a great time!

7 boy scouts and 5 adults hiked this trail. 10 miles. Senior scouts down to 1st year scouts had no trouble with this trail. Clean and well marked. Very nice.

Shaded, nice workout!

It's shady the whole way and there's well water at the camp sites so it's a great hike for hot weather. Have done it three times now and I have hardly run into anyone on the trails.

A good hike. A few blue and yellow blazes that were confusing. I know there is a Blue trail but I can't pin point where it is? Adding other trails to Yost Ridge makes for a full day of great local hiking!

The trail is shaded the entire way which is nice considering it was 90 out. The app makes it easy to navigate especially if you want to cut it short or go longer. It is a great trail!

Great trail. Good elevation changes. A little busy on weekends due to campers. Two good inclines that will give a brief challenge. Well marked.

Marked OK except for the junction that comes from the lake, back to the red trail and not marked how to get back to the parking lot. This is my beef with Jefferson Memorial Forest. None of the trails are adequately marked. There is 2 hard parts, for me at least, a steep incline on a ridgeline, and the switchbacks are are a little crazy, but other than that it's a good hike. Not much to see, but really pretty at the bottom. I ran into 4 hikers, all women, Girl Power and they had doggies. Good exercise. I did not go to the cemetery due to the crazy ridgeline.

Steep but fun!

Really nice, well marked trail. Shady with pretty views. Nice elevation changes.

Great local hike.

Hiked this trail this morning. It's a well marked and well maintained trail with lots of variety. The narrow trail follows some ridge lines with decent views and drops down into some valleys that include a number of creek crossings, though things were pretty dry today. I saw a few wild flowers and a doe and her fawn, heard a few frogs splash in the water before I could spot them, and cleared all the spiderwebs for those who head there this afternoon. Heading counterclockwise, there is an old car in the creek around mile 2. Overall it was a great hike and would probably be a good challenge for trail running as well. There is also a shortcut that cuts the distance from 3.3 miles to 1.3 miles.
