Nice long walk through nature and pretty lake view. The trail did not lead to any spectacular vistas, and even the hardest parts were not very challenging. I did find a tick on me so use bug spray! Overall, not bad; a good trail for beginners.

Easy to find from the parking lot GPS and clearly marked with blue blazes. We only made it halfway because the rain started coming down in buckets.

It may have become more moderate in the second half, but it was very easy except for a couple of small uphill stretches and one small scramble towards the start. Overall it felt fairly remote and far from suburbia, however, there were a couple of dirt roads running through. The topography changed throughout the hike - lake, dams, etc - which was nice and the trees were pretty. I wonder what the second half of the hike would have been like -- from the map it looked a little confusing as to which loop to take. Would go back and explore this trail and Fahnestock in general more.

Good trail. Use the many trails that intersect with it to make a nice "loop"

Pretty good workout on this 6 mile loop. Varying terrain, with minor rock climbing as the trail runs up the rocks in 2 different places. Not too many good views, unless you like lakes, streams, marshlands, and a closed mine or two. This is backwoods with very little sounds, other than wildlife.
