Great trail for a run! It is a beautiful place and almost all shade. The elevation change is a good challenge but not overwhelming. The loop is easy to follow. The best part though is that you can jump in the lake after the run to cool off! There are restrooms and changing areas near the trail head and parking convenient. Make sure to buy a park passport if you don't have one, only $10 and is good at all the state parks.
My friend and I hiked this trail this morning and it was beautiful! We only passed a few bikers and walkers along the way so for the most part, we were alone. It was so quiet and peaceful! The water was absolutely gorgeous. This was the first trail we've done and we we didn't struggle at all. There are definitely some steeper parts but we got through it without a problem. Can't wait to come back!!
Beautiful blue skies. Super hot for March. Fantastic trail with just the right amount of uphill that made you work for it but not overly so. Lots of friendly mtb-ers, dog walkers and runners sharing the same space. I drove 160 miles for those precious 2 hours to clear my head.
Nice walking trail! We have come here a few times, in the fall and the winter to walk with our dog. There are a lot of mountain bikers when there isn't snow on the ground. It is a nice forest hike, with several hills and bodies of water. My dog loves it!
Such a fun and challenging trail. The views were gorgeous, the terrain was ever changing and the smell of pine makes you want to stop and cherish its beauty. The colors are beautiful this time of year as well. The trail system is quite busy with bikers so be on the lookout because sometimes it's hard to see and hear what's around the corner.
A little late on this review, my wife and I went thru on 1 April! Loved the trail, although we started at the end, instead of the beginning, got a little turned around and added 2 miles to the overall hike. This was our first ever hike, and so far haven't been able to find anything even close as nice as this. This was before the greening of Spring, we look forward to going back in early Fall!
