Easy to Moderate hike that has some nice views around the lake. Worth noting that there is a $5 fee per person to enter the park. Proximity to the road on the trail and the sight of some power lines is an unfortunate reminder that you are not far out in the wilderness.

Beautiful views of the lake along the shore line. The best part of the hike is the farthest end from the ranger station. Not sure why this is rated difficult as it's anything but. You can park at several different points along the trail and start and stop about anywhere you like as it's never far from the road.

This was a great hike. They have great trails and they are clearly marked and easy to follow. Spectacular views on these trails with many different areas to stop and enjoy the scenery.

There are places to stop along the trail that have picnic tables and restroom facilities.

There is camping available, as we opted to stay and camp for the night on a camp site.

Highly recommended family get-away.

Nice trails. Of course not much elevation change. The armadillo trail ( I think that is the name) Has a nice bit of ground covered rock to test my balance and kick in my stabilizer muscles. I would not rate these trails as hard by any means. Maybe medium.

Trail is in great shape and well marked. Plenty of water for refills and clean restrooms available just off the trail in camp areas. Excellent lake views to enjoy.

Great trail. Lots of shade. Wear shoes with ankle support because there are lots of rocks, roots on parts of the trail. Only saw 6 other hikers.

This is basically one trail that snakes all the way thru Eisenhower State Park. We started near the entrance at the Overflow camping area (near the far end) and hiked up to the trailhead near the Bois D'arc Ridge camping area. There is quite a bit of elevation change going in and out of the point areas that face the lake, but nothing too serious. While there is beach access, it was too cold to go in the water (and dogs aren't allowed on the beach). Overall a solid hike with some great views ie. Lover's Leap, Snailseed Overlook. Also, plenty of bike tracks on the trail, which would seem to be a pretty difficult ride. But we'll save that one for next time out!

Really fond of the trails, they get pretty muddy after it rains. The park is relatively small, but makes for a great day full of hills.

Good trail, 9 miles total I think. Four hours but I think I should have slowed down and looked for the roses a little more.
