This is a nice trail to hike. Once you cross the road you walk straight across. We ended up walking the trail across the road backwards. Once you cross the road the trail gets a little more difficult. A walking stick might help on the ip and down parts.

Dogwood was a nice trek, took us about an hour to complete. Parking by the dam. We stopped quite a few times for photography. Started off w a few flights of stairs to get into the wooded area. Like other reviews it was a bit confusing once crossing the highway. You would want to walk straight across the Road BUT The entrance is a little bit to the right and the sign was hidden. There were a few times when the trail disappeared but for the most part there were enough trail markers to not get lost. It’s a short loop, but a few tricky parts where I was thankful for my hiking boots. There was a nice part that went behind rocks with water falling off of it, and a few benches for scenic lookouts. We were sad that it was over so quick.

Beautiful hike while the dogwoods were in bloom. Great overlook of the Lake. Mildly strenuous at first but gets easier once you reach the overlook. Nicely marked!

The trail was great. However, I recommend AllTrails removes fishing from the things to do. There is no place on the hike where you can get close enough to water to fish. Well, unless you scale down an incredibly steep, cliff like overhang.

Great views and a quick but difficult hike in some places.

Not well marked when crossing the highway. Not well maintained, a lot of brush on the trail and we all got a lot of chigger bites

If you do the loop, I don't recommend following the trail once you cut back up to the highway. It was very overgrown on that end, and we lost the trail at least twice. Nothing interesting to see on that stretch, either. Awesome overlook and long, beautiful bluff line on the segment that goes across the highway. Worth seeing!
