    Lovely trail for August. I suspect it would be very wet and “buggy” in early summer. Thimble berries in great abundance and just getting ripe - we picked s lot of these tasty berries on our hike.

    Pretty trail through forest regenerating over old Bull Shoals Dam limestone processing site. LOTS of ticks - be sure to spray. North end of Red Trail washed a bit and very rocky - fine if you go slow. Well marked trails just need more traffic and some widening of brush and limbs. A fine place for a quiet walk. Saw lots of birds, deer, and the cicadas were in full song!

    Super easy to hike, lots of great views and terrific labeling of native plants by park naturalists. The Flume never disappoints, and the trail back is just relaxing!

    A great trail, wide and largely smooth, only a few wet and rocky spots in mid-June. Still many wildflowers and great forest ecosystems to examine. Lovely hardwood forest at start of trail shifting into more spruce-fur at the top of the mountain. No views until you get to the top, but a nice trail. Moderate difficulty is deserved, not terribly steep but no switchbacks- just a steady climb upwards. Trail well-marked and easy to follow. Overall a nice 3 hour hike for average walkers.
