I walked this counter clockwise, so the camp numbers were in reverse order for me. The area that people have reported as damaged between camps 6 and 5 have been maintained enough at this point that you can follow the trail without resorting to using gps like some people were having to do earlier in the year. What got to me were hoof prints from before camp 6 and going until camp 4. There are a few short shared use parts of trail, based on what I saw on the map, but areas that were clearly marked with signs that said no horses had evidence you don’t want to step in of people riding horses there. The hoof prints added to the muddiness is all the wet spots. With all the hills, I think this trail is a great place to train for Ohioans planning to hike or trail run at other destinations, but with practically no views, this is not a destination in and of itself. You get better views and more interesting things to see by driving through the park on route 125 than you do walking this trail.

Just did this on New Year s Day w 110 people. It was my first hike on these trails. The hike was very well organized and the trails were in pretty good condition considering. The people were nice. The hills were pretty rough.

Others reviews are spot on. Just did an overnight myself (Dec 29-30, 2019). Only saw 1 couple with their dog along the way. Beautiful country with great camp sites everywhere. The terrain is no joke though. Lots of elevation changes. I took it counterclockwise starting at the cemetery not realizing most of the inclines would be in the second half of the trip. Brutal with a 40lb pack but gorgeous hike and absolutely rewarding. Did I mention it rained non stop the second day? Lots of mud and slick in some sketchy areas when wet and rainy. Mostly leaves on the trails and well blazed for the most part. If you want to bring the kids you can reach some nice camping spots relatively easy by driving and parking close by, but I would not call the 14 mile loop family friendly at all. Would not attempt with children under 10. And even then, extremely close supervision is advised with the elevated terrain. Had an AMAZING trip and cant wait to go back!! Definitely want to spend more than 1 night next go round! Well done, Archer's Fork!

Super fun trail! We spent the day in the rain and it was breathtaking! My pup had a blast!

I hated it. The trail goes to close to many private properties. I was planing to do backpacking. But there were to many private properties. The whole trail goes by the road. Its not worth it.

great trail, the first time through I had a couple ticks but iv been through two more times and hadn't gotten any, so it just depends on how diligent you are. there are a few spots where the trail is out due to uprooted trees but with a bit of effort you can get around them safely. I did this trail apparently in 5 and a halfish hours but took a few breaks so this can deffinately get done in one day, I'm also 320 pounds so if I can do it...well you know.

8 mile trail run with some water crossing, minimal mud spots, good uphills. Will return for hill workouts especially after Ottawa picnic center portion of the BT. largely flat with difficult inclines. Lots of leaves hiding roots and rocks.

The All Trails map doesn’t recognize all of this trail...FOLLOW THE BLUE AND RED BLAZES!!!! Overall the trail is fantastic!!! But try to avoid the green (bridal trail) blazes...very muddy. We camped near the lake and it was amazing to go to sleep with the sound of water lapping on the beach. We’ll be back.

can't believe I've never been before, what a great trail. and a great way to burn off some Christmas calories on an unusually warm day. my app said it was 7.78. I was hustling and did it in 2:22 ( jogged a few downhills). I was surprised by the lack of wildlife. saw some squirrels, two ducks, a blue heron, and some other bird..I just figured there would be more! otherwise, beautiful hope on a magic day.

Mud was to be expected to some degree given the temperatures. However, there are parts of the trail that are shared with horses and logging trucks which makes a little mud more like a bog still made for a great hike, increased the exercise level with the mud, and overall I did like it.

Overall, the trail is OK. However, after a light snow melt it is just one big nasty bug for about 2 miles

Nice trail easy hike.

My son and I completed this in and out trail from the trailhead to Camp 7 this weekend. The trail was well marked, a tiny bit rocky at the beginning but smooths out the rest of the way. The elevation changes are manageable with only a couple steep ascents. There is a trail re-route marked at the recent “forest management” area just as you cross the road. It’s not a big deal, you have to walk about 50 feet down the road then up the hill and back on the trail. That area is a bit of an eye sore as the southern side has been clear cut. Not a lot of wildlife this time of year. Camp 7 has a couple fire rings and a few flat areas for tents. You’ll pass the outhouse on the way there. The water source is about .2 miles past the camp down the side trail. The hike out in the morning was much quicker as it’s more downhill. I would recommend this in/out section to anyone looking for a nice, sweaty, 2-day backpacking weekend. Kids and dogs too. I’m looking forward to going back during the summer.

If you like hiking 90% on trail and 50% along the lake, take this trail.

Hard to follow at times and super easy to follow at times. Just pay attention to your gps. Fun hike and well covered in the rain minus the road. Cool rock formations and pretty standard for hocking. Didn’t see a soul

Amazing trail! we stopped and had our lunch on a cliff edge over the water, took around 5 hours! Definitely worth it and will revisit again.

Great trial to enjoy the autem.

Location was easy to find using google maps, so no problems getting to the cemetery. The trail head is right there , about 50 feet from where you park. My son and I hiked this trail over the weekend, beginning around noon on Saturday. We went clockwise so we’d cover more miles the first day before we arrived at the camping areas. We chose to hike down 9bells trail, to the small valley below to set up camp. That added about a mile up and back in the morning. Coyote and owl noises at night, haunting but beautiful. This trail is difficult in a few spots, mostly the 2-3 uphill climbs, but not impossible. Yes to the smell of gas/oil occasionally and seeing old oil rigs and pipes on the ground, but it’s not that distracting. No spider web or bug issues this time of year. I brought 4L of water and used it all. We did spot two water caches around the 5-6 mile area. Our total hiking time was 8-9 hours, but we stopped a lot to explore and take pictures. There are about 5-6 stream crossings, all but one are tiny and simple. The one that was wider and deeper we crossed by going upstream a bit to find a rock hopping spot, so in the end , no wet feet! The trail was dry with lots of leaves, it may be a more difficult experience when wet, especially with the elevation changes. Overall, I would recommend this trail to anyone, it may be rough going if you have kids younger than 8 though. Happy trails.

A beautiful and wonderful trail with a variety of terrain and sights. One of my favorite trails so far.

This trail was a lot of fun. We went on November 1st, the day after a lot of wind storms, and there were quite a few trees down on the trail. This was a pretty challenging trail. It's much more challenging than Wildcat Hollow, which is also rated as Moderate. The scenery and views on this trail were incredible. The trail is very well maintained, and marked extremely well. I will definitely be coming back to backpack this Lake Vesuvius again. I definitely recommend it!
