The East loop is nice, and the rock quarry is a good place to rest and take a lunch.
West loop is tough, but could use a little upkeep due to some overgrowth.
Both trials are good for training for more advanced hikes.

Beautiful and remote. Great to bring the dogs and kids. Easy hike and great creek access!

Peaceful and enjoyable hike.

Nice shaded trail. Will hike again!

Great hike in and out! Combination of high & low slopes with small waterfall!

Great hike in and out! Beautiful
quarry!!

Great little hike with a beautiful waterfall as payoff. There are a few really muddy spots on the trail so make sure you have the correct shoes.

I have done this trail a couple of times. It's not kid friendly and nor well maintained.

This is a beautiful hike to a waterfall.

This place is gorgeous and the main trail is easy enough but the hike down to the falls was pretty vigorous for someone not in the best shape cardio wise but worth it! Note to wear actual hiking shoes instead of runners for better grip on the gravel.

Lula Lake is a great place to go hiking. one of my favorite courses I do, is from the parking lot to middle Trail. Then take that to the bluff Trail. A great view of the valley. Then Bluff Trail down to the falls which is great on a nice hot day. I usually spend about a half an hour at the base of the falls. Then back to the parking lot. I have it as 4.6 MI. You do some climbing but the hills are long and gradual.

The falls were cool, but the overlook was definitely the best part. Lightly trafficked and peaceful.

The trail could be more clearly marked, and we were disappointed when we had to turn around halfway through then loop because the trail was so overgrown we couldn't safely continue. Looking forward to going back when some of the summer foliage dies back.

Very nice falls. The hike is short but there are plenty of other trails to hit while you’re there. We did a nice 7.2 mile loop. Go early to avoid the crowd.

Good mix of flat and steep

Great trail! Lots of ups and down to keep your heart pumping and plenty of beautiful views to keep you interested along the way.

I've hiked at Lula on 2 separate occasions. I look forward to more visits for years to come.

I took my kids on this “1.6” mile “easy” loop. We went to the right at the fork. It was not easy at the top and not well maintained. The trail is steep at the top, especially coming down the other side. There was a lot of blow down that had to be navigated. At one very narrow point we climbed over a muscadine vine. The waterfall was just a trickle and it has been raining heavily in this area so that was disappointing. And according to my running app it was 2.21 miles. I would rate this a moderate trail.

Fantastic trail, awesome waterfall for swimming! Though both times I have been here I have seen snakes hanging out in the crevices of the rocks by the waterfall, watch out for them.

This was our first trail to backpack overnight. The scenery is beautiful. It is a pretty hard trail the first 2 miles and the last 2 miles. There are 4 campsites. The campsites just have a flat spot for your tent and a fire pit. The only complaint was that campsite one was not marked and was right on the trail. The trail is a little grown over at places with tall grass and poison oat so be sure to wear appropriate clothing and bring bug spray. This is black bear country so be smart. We will definitely be returning.

my partner and I hiked this trail last weekend, it was cooler and breezy which made the hike very nice. Spectacular overlooks, changing terrain, waterfalls, mountains. We had a great time. We passed about 8 people in the entire 8+ miles, I think half of them asked if we had seen any bears, apparently bears are prevalent at fort mountain SP. We did not see any bears by the way...this is an excellent hike, we would do it again. It took about 4.75 hours to complete, and we stopped for lunch on the trail and at one of the overlooks. We like to hike at a pretty moderate pace.

Loved the seclusion - very lightly trafficked on weekdays.

Did this trail a few months back! Rewarding waterfall at the end!

had time for about half, fairly easy up hill, ran water off the trail pretty well considering the rain at the time. convenient to do along with other activities.

This is a hidden gem - magnificent waterfall and a pristine crystal clear mountain top lake with a sand bottom beach

Better than expected. Get a couple of great views and if it has rained recently, beautiful small falls. Easy to stick your head in the waterfall.

Take the path to the right! At the top, I attempted to come back down the "left side" of the loop, but it was more overgrown than I wanted to deal with.

Definitely not kid friendly. In the middle of nowhere, and hard to see the trail sometimes. The only positive thing about it was that it was a good workout. I would for sure rate this as moderate, and hard if you’re in bad shape.
