Nice out and back. Good shade and easy ups and downs. Perfect for trail running and Mtn bikes.

Varied terrain made it interesting. Only one section that I would call difficult. Signage could have been better. There were parts that I didn't know what trail I was on.

My husband and I hiked this trail together. We are in our 50s and overweight but we managed to make it. Some parts were difficult but we survived and enjoyed it. We had no problem staying on the trail. We just followed the paint markings on the trees.

nice hike, found a 2' copperhead sunning at the end in creek bed. beautiful and close to home.

Great 1 to 2 hour hike, easy access, huge Loblolly Pine Trees along the trail leading to Short Creek.

Amazing hike with three dogs. Beautiful views of Short Creek and one bald eagle.

This trail is obscured in many areas due to trees down from lingering tornado damage, and the trail junctions are unclear, resulting in my following animal trails accidentally instead of the real trail. I took 2 dogs, and while we completed the loop around the island, we weren't on the trail for about 70% of the hike, it wasn't without a fair amount of difficulty. I had to lift my oldest of my large dogs over many tree trunks.

Easy hike to do with family.

I did this trail today and was very disappointed. It is not maintained very well hard to even tell where the trail is in some parts.

Myself, my son and my brother-in-law and his son completed this trail in the fall of 2014. Wonderful trail with a surprise at the water at the turnaround. We are going back to hike out and picnic in that turn around area in 2015.

I love this trail. Lots of ups and downs. A solid moderate level trail. This is a great trail for conditioning for a backpacking trip.

This trail is one of the nicer trails at the State Park, after the recent tornado. The scenary is beautiful, the trail follows along side the guntersville lake, crossing several creeks. When we walked the trail, the creek beds were dry. The trail ends at a large rock bed creek, that enters lake guntersville, even though it was dry as well, it was very beautiful. The trail is approx 2.2 miles in. Then you return on the same trail, it took us about 2 hours to complete the in/out trail.
