The trail itself is very well maintained, and there were very few areas blocked by overgrowth or fallen trees. There are a lot of lakes that make for very nice scenery, and if you pack accordingly, you could go off trail to swim. Bikers are traveling in the opposite direction of hikers, and flyby very fast sometimes. Blazes are sporadic, and mile markers not present, but it's fine. All in all, a very nice trail for hiking.

They have tons of trails to choose from. Today we did a 2 miles loop. The loop was the upland trail to the lowland trail.

Great trail. Beautiful lake views. Well tended. Walked the trail for almost two hours and didn't see another person. Plenty of hills and challenging sections.

We found this hike absolutely beautiful! The trails are well maintained and 99% of them are in heavy shade under dense canopy. While it's called a 3 mile loop, it's a trail network with many subloops so you can tailor you hike from 3 to 6 miles before you start retracing your steps. Note that the trailhead a are hard to find - the better one is on Berger Road and will be on the left hand side shortly after turning onto it from Mitchell.

Decent inclines throughout, fairly sandy. It's not marked anywhere but this is also a mountain bike trail.

Very nice trail, however, study the map (at trailhead) before heading out. Following the blue markers, we somehow turned around prematurely, this missing half the trail. In spite of that, the views were very pretty and we really enjoyed the trail. Moderate climb at beginning (and end) of trail.

Really fun. Gorgeous views, and good difficulty for my first backpacking trip. Pretty busy, saw about 20 people over a period of three days. My boyfriend and I only went half the loop (13 miles) but we definitely plan to come back

Pretty path. Myself and my two littles, 3 and 4 years went midday, midweek and took the orange trail. Only came across two bicyclists and two joggers. Quiet and pretty. Kids loved it and we will be going back to check out the other trails. Not hard in any way.
