    JoAnn Eaton reviewed Scarce O'Fat Trail

    The trail itself is nice., Good inclines, white diamond blazes on the trees. The trail head sign was slightly covered today. My friend and I hiked it counter clockwise. To hike it clockwise walk down the gravel road a bit and pick up the trail with the sign that is marked “High King Hill”.

    If hiking it counter clockwise you’ll come to a shared trail/road that has blazes all along the way and it eventually comes to a T. Go left and you’ll see trail markers on the left. It says it’s the Tecumseh trail but it carried the white diamond blazes and brought us to the bottom of High king hill. A few downed trees at one point which required climbing but nothing hard.

    The road in is gravel and had signs that cautioned about flooding. So keep in mind how much rain we’ve had when you’re heading to the trail.

    Shaded for maybe 10min and then you’re out in the sun the remainder of the time with very little opportunity to hide from the sun. So be aware of the temps if you plan to hike this trail. The wild flowers were pretty and the open views of the lake are nice. I will echo what others have said about the trail markers being confusing. Some of them had trail 5 marked on them but there is no trail 5 on the map. Possibly a new trail in the works? I’ll be back to the park to kayak and swim but not likely for hiking.

    I hiked this trail June 30th 2018. You are in the shade 95% of the time. There are a few open grassy spots along the way, the longest stretch being on the back side of the dam. Well marked. Definitely narrow. I only met 4 riders along the way. Often times the only way to give right of way for them is to be in the brush. I picked up my first ever poison ivy rash. I had no issues with ticks. I completed it in 4.5hrs.

    The trails are pretty but definitely need better markings. Especially where trail 2 comes out near the trailside shelter. On the map it looks like it runs parallel to that shelter and the swings further north. There’s a trail marker slightly hidden there that sends you down a creek bed which I’m pretty sure isn’t the actual trail. Then, when 3 and 2 split off there are markers but if you take the trail 2 loop you are in your own for markers until you get to the intersection of the trail leading to campground A. It needs more markers since there are a few side trails that cause you to question which way to go. Trail 3, which was pretty much a straight line and the easiest to follow, had the most markers.

    I did use one of the shelter restrooms and it was clean and well stocked. The gate attendant was very friendly.

    I hiked this in a counter clockwise direction. Clear path. Markers when needed. The observation deck next to the creek was nice. Over all a nice trail!

    This is primarily an out and back trail with a short loop at the beginning. I skipped the loop going out and picked it up on my return. There was a downed tree at the first inlet that requires decent climbing. I’m sure they’ll have it cleared soon.

    I wish I had had a trash bag with me as there was quite a bit of trash that had been washed in with all the rain/flooding.

    I lost the trail for a minute or so at a creek crossing. I think the trail could use a few more markers in those areas.

    Over all a great little hike!

    Nice little trail around the lake. Well traveled so markers aren’t really needed. Muddy this time of year since we’ve had a lot of rain.

    Well maintained trail. If you love to hike close to the creek this is a great trail for that once you make the decent to the bottom. Trail markers are well placed and in good shape.

    Trail head is at the West watch tower. Plenty of parking for this time of year. I imagine it probably gets full quickly during warmer weather. Picnic benches at the trail head. Grass space available for a picnic.

    I made it to the point where you have to follow the creek bed. Definitely a trail to return to when the weather warms up. Even though I couldn’t hike the entire trail I still had some gorgeous views!

    A snow covered hike on a well marked trail. A few creek crossings the resulted in slightly wet boots. Will definitely be back to enjoy this trail in other seasons.

    A great trail. Not busy at all. Had a few spots where it could have used a few more markers just because if the creek bed crossings. Otherwise it was great! We started where it breaks off from the Peninsula trail.
