The trail is a double stacked-loop trail; there is a short loop of approximately 4 miles for day hiking and a longer loop of 8.5 miles for overnight use. Primitive camping is allowed on the longer loop at five designated campsites only. Pigeon Roost Trail is in a figure eight shape that is made up by two loops, Dry Creek Loop 4.1 miles and Huckleberry Loop 4.3 miles. Please contact the Ranger at the phone number listed below to determine if there will be a campsite available. The trail is fairly short for an overnight trail, but there are several hills to climb which give the trail its difficulty rating.

The trail is great, but it's currently obliterated near the #4-5 campsites by an enormous fallen tree.

Great hike, well marked trail. Rolling hills but not too difficult. Several Amazing views of the lake. We did 8.8 miles and took a half way break. Fall colors starting to show and will be beautiful in a few weeks.

Doc and I hiked just the Dry Creek Loop portion of the PR Trail. It ends up being a very manageable 4.4 miles. There are no "wow" features on this trail other than the incredible views of the lake. These alone are worth the trip. I'd recommend stopping here and just hiking out to the overlook if you're in the area and want a nice spot for a little break.

The trail is well-traveled and marked with white blazes. Signage is great. This trail stays relatively level, with a little steep-ish up/down here and there, but nothing major. The Hobbs Conservation Area as a whole gets a big "thumbs up" in my book.

My son and I did this trail and camped overnight. It is a quick hike at 4hrs 20min without much elevation change. The trail is very well maintained and very well marked from start to finish.

this trail has something for everyone there is good fishing camping and just an overall beautiful hike. I will definitely be back in the fall when the leaves change.

Beautiful scenery. Nicely shaded so that even on a 100-degree day, the hike is nice. Just bring plenty of water for the full 8.5 miles.

Got caught in a storm, but still easy enough to finish. Only did the 4 mile spur. Pretty and plenty to keep me entertained.
