didn't find it marked as well outside of the forrest area. encountered a decent amount of bear scat, the forrested area is gorgeous, and the two fall we encountered were beautiful... at sawblade falls, we had a dip (the water wasn't coming down fast). We went clockwise... and had to go up some steeper areas
About 3.5-4 hours

Super fun hike! However, if you do plan on going off the Woodland Loop trail and go to see the Sawblade Falls, the water level is quite low around this time of year so the falls will be quite small. Still a beautiful spot, and a beautiful hike!

really nice hike easy and friendly for dog, 2.5hours

Great walk, we have done this many times. We even did a vlog of our walk. Check it out on our channel J&M Jaunts on YouTube.

Perfect on nice hot day light hike with few very nice swim sports...

Nice hike when the clouds are too low for viewpoints. This trail is on the lower end of Moderate closer to easy. The trail is pretty well marked and if you have Alltrails ap with you its really not that complicated. There were markers big signs saying falls this way etc. So not sure if this is new, but we found it pretty easy to navigate and only checked Alltrails maps a few times. Falls are beautiful and if it was hot ( not today) some nice none dangerous pools to cool off in.

Beautiful place , easy for beginners !

There was a trail, and a beach, and an island. Whoa!

Overall good trail, some areas could have been marked better. It can be difficult I’m certain areas of up hills and down hills but overall not a super challenging trail. Good for a nice hike !

Beautiful and if you go to the falls the scenery is great.

Beautiful lake. The trail was well maintained and not crowded at all. Took around 2.5 hours total to go around the whole lake. Mostly shaded which is nice on a hot sunny day. Didn't feel like a real hike though since there wasn't a viewpoint at the end, it was more of an exercise/walking trail. Perfect trail for dogs.

Loved it. Dogs enjoyed it even more - lots of places for them to swim.

Did this hike at 9am on the Monday of a long weekend (August 6th) in just under 4 hours. Only saw a few other hikers, no groups of kids blaring music, and jumping in the lake at the end is the perfect finish.

Amazing views! Trilha bem tranquila
Nada de urso.

Easy hike with a few sections of stairs. Some good viewpoint spots along the way to jug island beach too! Once you get to the beach you can swim or just watch the kayakers.

low elevation easy trail. but a great summer trail with the river to cool off in.
the falls have a pool below it if you feel courageous enough to jump in.

Beautiful walk, mostly shady. Lot’s of spot for swimming. I recommend to get there fairly early in the day, as the parking is very limited. We had to walk 40 min to actually start the hike

Only downside to me was the bugs in the summer cause it's a swamp.

Loved the hike, does fall into the hard category for couple of steep and rocky spots. Beautiful view from the top, don’t miss it. A bit confusing to keep track of the whole loop, got lost a couple of times but nothing too bad.

Wonderful hike. Great variety of scenery.

Great hike! I highly recommend starting the trail at the south end of the lake and going straight up the mountain (You could loop around the lake and start up the mountain on the north end.) there are a few sketchy spots that are hard enough to go up, let alone try to go down.
The second viewpoint was the best IMO.
Took us just under 4 hours to do the hike. We are fairly seasoned hikers, so I would imagine less aggressive hikers would need about 5 hours to complete this hike. Mostly shaded and canopied. We did this hike in the hottest part of the day and stayed pretty cool the whole way.

The reviews explaining the lack of signage are correct - bring a GPS or AllTrails map with you! You must go through the first yellow gate up the hydro service road from parking on the main road and then take a left through a second yellow gate up more service road to reach the true (marked) trailhead. Otherwise you will be on the mountain bike trails which can be dangerous!

Hikers have made signage indicating Lower Loop and Upper Loop. These are the same trail just clockwise or counterclockwise. I saw no real difference in difficulty doing it either way and there are blue trail markers on the trees at this point which mark the trail well.

Other reviews mention the falls. This is an offshoot trail - not part of the Woodland Walks as shown in the All Trails map. We didn’t trust to follow signage without the GPS map so chose to stick to WW Trail.

This trail is not very crowded, and with berries and streams close to the trail - bring your bear bells and keep you dogs leashed! All in all a very quiet and tranquil jaunt through the woods.

We did this trail early in the morning and it was still busy. It was a nice walk although there were lots of puddles and the trail was narrow through a few stretches. When we got at the falls it was super busy. No way you could take a picture without having strangers in the background. lol
I would do this again in a few years maybe.

it was really busy, but beautiful as well

This is an easy short afternoon hike. I spent less than 2 hours plus small breaks at the two lookouts. Please wear closed-toe shoes coz some part of the trail is fully covered with roots and rocks. When you are leaving the low and high knoll lookout, just follow the same route you get up there. Have a lot of spaces for parking on gravel road.

Great hike with hard and easy spots, wonderful workout, beautiful scenery. I wish everyone followed the dog on leash law on this trail, as some of the narrow lanes can be difficult to tread when dogs come running at you.

This is my favourite hike

This is not a safe trail and poorly marked makes it very dangerous and easy to be lost
