    nice easy hike...some strenuous uphills but not for long...beautiful view of Green River and it sandbars and of the high ridges along the river...some nice bottomland mature sycamores and beech trees down by the river banks...

    really nice to do- just 15 minutes from the Visitor Center- has some views of the Green River and just off the river, along the banks of one of its tributaries, are stands of huge sycamores, about 15 feet in circumference. (see photos)

    a nice trail...might take 2 hours or more- goes through some nice stands of big trees with good views of the lakes...crosses the lake and ends up near the Nature Station. This area, also including the Hematite Trail, is one of the nicest ares in LBL

    an easy stroll...at dusk the trail head area is full of deer! Sometimes as many as 15-20 deer can be seen here or over by the nearby Nature Station area.

    A nice hike! Follows a beautiful steam full of pools and cascading water. Used to be the erntrance to a mine along the trail but now it is torn down. I just did the hike to Laurel Falls (the bigger of the two) which took 2 hours each way, with plenty of photos and snack stops included. If you go north from Dayton on Rt 27, you can easily do Piney Falls in Grandview on the same day...it is right off the road and only a short hike to get to!

    be sure to climb to the top of Virgin Falls on the side (trail goes up either side) and check out the hole in front of the falls where you can see the underground river just before it flows over the top of the falls. The air coming out of the hole is so cool it's quite unbelievable, maybe 55 or 60 F, whereas the outside air temps can be 85-90 F! Quite the contrast! (thank for this tip to the guy who hiked with his English wolfhound dog called Gaea!)

    I did the trail yesterday (6/16/2003)...was not that hard, took 6 hours round trip but had plenty of time for photo opts and snack/water breaks on the way. But you do need to be in fairly good condition for this one. If you can do a 5-K run in 30 minutes, it won't be a problem.The climb out (lots of uphills)is a lot harder than the hike in. One thing I would mention: the trail is narrow at time and slippery in places. I would keep an eye on the weather and NOT do it if there is a good chance of rain. With a wet trail, this hike would be treacherous at many spots!
