Great loop but close to the highway. We like it because it's close by.

Personally, this trail felt very claustrophobic to me. The branches and trees force you to stay tight on the trail - you can't even see beyond. The rocks and the roots and the ascent weren't half as bad. The bugs were though! I like my trails to be roomier and this was anything but.

This is a great hike and reminds me of a short snippet of a trail you may find on the west coast. It can be nearly vertical at times but it's short lived and it rewarded by great views of the valley or the peaceful beauty of the forest.

Afton is a great State Park with wonderful pack-in campsites. We stayed in #18 and felt all alone. The hiking itself is personally nothing to write home about. Most of the trails are on a mowed path through prairie, which is just fine for children or those folks not in it for the thrill, necessarily. There is one loop to the southwest of the park that is fairly up, through forest, and slightly more up and down.. I liked this trail but short and, frankly, goes by far too quickly! We were able to see many deer in our couple days camping and hiking here, probably 6 or 7 total!

The Fountain Trail is a good ride. A mixture of shade and sun. All a gentle uphill slope since it's an old railroad bed. I was exhausted but thrilled when I finished! Don't expect to find a cold drink or coffee or much of anything in Fountain once you get there. A sweet town nevertheless.

The map on this trail highlights only the paved path. There are a few dirt/grass options on the southwest side of the lake. Totaled 8.28 miles. Quite a few walkers, runners and cyclists on the paved path. No one else on the hiking only dirt trails.

This is rated as hard but for serious hikers it is pretty moderate. Elevation never gets above 2000 ft above sea level so breathing is easier. If you are not a serious hiker and you are out of shape this could be hard. I am generous with the stars.
