    Mike Ko reviewed High Lakes Loop Trail

    11 months ago

    I would consider this trail somewhere between a beginner and intermediate trail. The two major climbs are quite steep.

    Really enjoyed this hike. Most of the hike is in the woods so views are a bit limiting. But the views of the lakes from lake level as well as from the overlook are breathtaking.

    I used this map and my app showed me veering off the trail enough to make me wander if I had taken the wrong trail. My GPS showed that I was further north than the map.

    Overall, really enjoyed.

    This is a challenging trail for a new (and out of shape) hiker like me. The first part of the trail that takes you to the overlook is difficult. But the initial ascent on the Maryland heights loop is very steep and very difficult. At the steepest sections, it was basically, take twenty steps, take a break, repeat.

    Parts of the descent are narrow but not difficult. There are quite a few areas with loose rocks, so one needs to pay attention. Definitely recommend hiking pkles.

    Having suffered through this hike, it was rewarding to complete and I look forward to doing it again.

    Btw - I would have given it 5 stars but it was quite crowded ( trail to lookout). But then it's a wonderful hike being so close to DC.

    We really enjoyed this trail. The trail was challenging enough to make it fun for us (new hikers) but not so challenging we never want to hike again
