Lots of snow and ice, micro spikes are a must. This recording shows route to the jump off, which is a spectacular view.

1/23/21 Such a great hike! It was like hiking in a winter wonderland. Please save yourself the trips and falls and invest in CRAMPONS if you’re hiking in icy/snowy conditions. They saved my life this trip. Good amount of people on the trail, the top has an amazing view.

Great trail with a great fire watch tower view. The trail is washed out/not marked well in a few places but I got the “off trail” notification and I was able to correct myself and get back to the specified trail. There are other trails to explore but I didn’t branch off from what’s recorded in the app.

Amazing view! 360 degree! 2.5 miles uphill. Lots of roots and rocks. Not too steep. Went with Leslie Shaw

The trail still has a little ice on it. But doable and really enjoyable! Very muddy, wear good shoes. Would not suggest for beginners or children.

I loved this trail! It features a long section of lakeside trail, miles of gorgeous hardwood forest and a boardwalk swamp crossing. The route includes sections of Lakeside Trail (not 100% sure about this name), Big Hill Pond (BHP) Trail, Dry Ridge Trail and Tuscumbia Trail. The trail deviates from the recorded route at mile 3.1 for about a quarter mile. The best thing to do is ignore the hunter’s path to the left (CCW route) and continue along the access road until it intersects with the trail. If I had know this was the case, I would have recorded a clean route and submitted a trail revision to AllTrails. Hopefully someone will do this soon. Directions and landmarks (counterclockwise route): The trail runs beside the lake until mile 0.5. At the northernmost point of the loop you cross a boardwalk and turn left to head south along the other side of the lake. The forest is absolutely gorgeous in this area; however, there are some steeply pitched sections of trail beside the creeks. At mile 0.9, cross the access road. At mile 1.7, you turn a sharp right onto Dry Ridge Trail and leave the lakeside portion of the route. At mile 2.0, turn right onto the horse trail. At mile 2.3, turn left onto Tuscumbia Trail. At mile 2.6, turn left and head on to the downhill access road. At mile 3.0, the trail wildly deviates from the recorded route. At mile 3.1, look for a slightly overgrown access road to the left. At mile 3.3, you leave the hunters trail and merge with a wide hiking trail. At mile 3.35, cross the bridge. At mile 3.7, turn left. At mile 3.8, you reach the forestry watchtower. At mile 3.9, turn left onto the original trail. At mile 4.4, you will reach half-mile-long boardwalk. At mile 4.9, you leave the boardwalk. At the end of the boardwalk, continue straight to head up the ridge.At mile 5.2, continue across Trailhead Lane. At mile 5.7, continue straight. At mile 6.5, cross the access trail. At mile 6.6, continue straight. At my 6.8, you reach the bridge across the lake. Note: my measurements might be a little off after mile 3.1 (when I briefly followed the recorded route instead of the current trail system), but I tried to adjust my measurements accordingly. This trail might be a bit much for many beginners. There are quite a few turns and data/GPS reception is pretty spotty along the way, so make sure to download a map before you head out. Also, there are some narrow sections of trail with steep lateral grading along the western lakeside area that will make this unsafe trail for those with mobility concerns.

Fun trail. Lots of obstacles for more intermediate hikers. Crazy amount of ice though. Had trekking poles and barely made it. Crampons would be much better. A couple really nice views.

The trail was really nice! I started around 7:45 and finished around 11:15. Great time to go. Almost no one in the lot when I got here and crowds starting coming in on my way back. VERY icy this time of year- slippery. I would definitely bring some trekking poles.

Have loved day hiking this trail for years, and today was no exception. Starting from the campground connector to the loop is a nice 8 miles. Long boardwalk through wetlands is beautiful as is the view from atop the lookout tower. A great place to spend a day - especially these days!

Rocky and roots in spots, but not too steep. Beautiful views.
