Walk this trail after I had complete a 6.6 mile trail the day before. It was Labor Day weekend and we walk it on Sunday before the holiday. We walk 5.8 miles from start to finish. We will do it again. I thought it was easy on my knees. Well laid out.

Great trail for exercise and scenery! We love it! Only one encounter which was frightening is when a couple near the lake had their Pit Bull off of his leash, and he charged up the hill to growl at my daughter and me as we were walking the trail. I stood totally still and told them to get their dog now! They were slow doing this but finally got their dog! I love all animals, but this was scary!!

great views. nice workout

It was a real workout considering we started midday. The route we took the yellow marking was a little over 3 miles. We went to the Altoona Dam from the beginning point off of Red Top Mountain Road. A little tired since we done 6 miles atop of Pine Mountain on Saturday the day before. So I'm resting on my bed tonite with my wife Tera. We will do it again

Lovely trail and a good challenging hike. We missed the red trail to the top and had to do a little back tracking to pick it up. The lake was also beautiful although most views are through the trees.

A bit busier than I would like. Nice views.

This was one adventurous trail - we took our kids on it and hiked in a single file line due to narrow trail. Up and down (and up and down again!) so wear good shoes! Perfect if you're looking for a more challenging time.

Love the blue trail! Nice and level - great for even little dogs with small legs :) Circles the lake (lots of lake views, including cool little coves) and there are places to cut down to the water for picnics, swim or just watch the boaters on the lake.

The only section that is iffy (water wise) is the side with the old campground - you can't swim on that side, lots of rocks and branches in the water (no swimming signs posted). The picnic tables on that side are covered in moss and the area is over-grown. Kind of a shame, actually.

A great place to get a nice walk in or spend the day!

Nice and easy wide gravel path. Not too crowded on a Sunday afternoon.
