Great hike for a beginner. It is important to mind the trail markings and if you arent careful you can get off the trail without a clear way to get back. Best bet is to give yourself plenty of daylight to get back just in case. The trail is marked with green tree markers and in a couple spots have arrows to help...pay attention to them. You can see the lake for 75% of the hike, but it's the other 25% you have to be careful.

Nice trail through the wilderness of the park.

Trails are not very clearly marked, didn't mean to do this trail in fact, but it turned out to be a great trail. Very clean, also super cool to be able to get to the natural spring. Even got to fill up a bottle.

Great trail want to do it again in fall

Beautiful trail. Well worth the effort. Some markings can be confusing and the trail is mixed in difficulty. The half by the river is easy, while the parts by the outcroppings are much more rigorous with elevation changes and tree roots. Overall lovely hike though.

The park is lovely and well maintained. I enjoyed the shade of the trail on a very hot day. My dog joined me and I was very glad to see how agile he actually is b/c the trail had some rocky areas that some smaller dogs might struggle with. I chose to go right after crossing over the bridge which was a mistake as somehow I got turned around and ended up missing a portion of the trail. Something to do with a “trail run’’? access. Have learned my lesson to always follow the straight path!! Path was diverse with challenges along the way to keep me energized- would love to go back and tackle it again.

nice trail!

Very nice trail and well maintained, we did a 8mile loop and camped out. There are more than this one trail in this area and also allows bikes

This was a descent morning hike that took approximately 2 hours to complete. The trail (green route) wraps around the lake, but hiking the loop requires walking on the park roads. There was a small entrance fee to the park. Some of the footbridges were in bad shape, but it made stream crossings more fun.

Clean, easily accessed, moderate challenges along route.

Dark when I rode and there appears to be many trails cross crossing. Maybe that was Bigfoot’s trail I was following.
Minor elevation changes with a few jumps. A small pump section Would definitely return during the day....
Nighttime is dangerous.

Great trail. Wonderful scenery.

Trail markings were a little confusing.

One of the best and most beautiful hiking/walking trails. This was an easy walk and you feel submerged in nature yet you are not from what you started. A few hikers were on the trail but it was not crowded.

Trail clearly marked.

easy-to-follow well-marked Trail. A few spots were tough on my knees, but overall not too bad. Waterfall was not very big today.

This is one of my go to hikes while in the Columbus area. It's a very simple but beautiful trail. It's not too strenuous to take my son and dog along with me. The only downside is having to dodge horse poo towards the end of the trail.

got to hiking and not even that far into it I noticed large animal tracks that looked like a big cat of some sort. not long after I laid my eyes on a very large cat of some kind following me from a distance. stalking me is what it was. LoL so be safe when using this trail

Not bad. The trail is run down in a few areas. Definitely a challenge.
