Great trail! Red Top always has well marked trails. I've done this one many times with my pup.

This is a great loop trail. It's a fairly easy well maintained path. Nice views of the lake as you weave in and out of the beautiful hardwoods.

Did something crazy and hiked every trail at Red Top one Sunday. This review will cover the entire experience. Well marked, nicely maintained, and surprisingly quiet considering how popular it is. The views were gorgeous and there is enough of a variety in the trails to really give you a workout. Great place to train for more strenuous hikes and events.

well kept and marked! I liked that there are spots on the trail that are on the water so my pup can cool off!

One of my favorite trails! Well maintained and full of beautiful views of the lake. There's a side trail towards the northeastern corner of the trail that leads down to a solitary bench right at the shore of the lake. Love to stop there, eat a snack, and enjoy the view of the lake!

Really nice, well-kept trail. I don't think it should be classified as "moderate"; it was pretty flat with the occasional gentle slope. It crosses the Lakeside trail too, if you'd like to see some beautiful views of the lake.

Beautiful!

Well marked trail(s) and well taken care of. It’s more of an easy hike with a couple of inclines but all and all it’s a great trail to hike.

Nice Hiking. Not too difficult, but on the right day.... It's a nice way to spend a few hours

First time on this trail. It was clean and well-marked throughout. Views of the lake almost the entire time - lots of little paths off the main walk that can take you closer to the water. Beautiful in spring time! Trail begins down off to the left of the parking lot.

This is a nice trail if you want a fair amount of distance (I clocked in @ 6.77 miles) without too many strenuous hills. Like others have said, should be rated easy with only a few moderate spots.

Near Iron Hill Trail. I like to run Iron Hill then hike this right after. A bit challenging at a few spots. Several spots to veer off and sit on small somewhat-secluded beaches and modest overlooks of the lake. Very nice scenery.

Easy walk/jog. Very nice escape. Easy-to-follow path. Couple good spots for dogs to swim too.

Took the kids and had a great time. Saw a few deer and that brought a huge smile and excitement to the kids. Walked this trail and a smaller 3/4 mile loop connected to this trail. Beautiful views of the lake. Lovely trail. I am not an avid hiker and agree with the “moderate” skill level.

Beautiful views, easy walk and not too crowded. Highly recommend. Don’t forget you need $5 for parking.

Super afternoon day hike with my dog..
Trail are well marked, well maintained and the lake is beautiful in early spring.

Definitely not moderate- should be classified as easy. Some slight elevation and pretty smooth. Remember to pay to park- 5usd

Nice little easy hike with mild hills and good views of the lake. Follows the lake almost the entire trail. We stopped for lunch at the tip of the peninsula. The picnic tables could use some work and the trail could be marked a little better, but I’m definitely going to come back at some point. I would like to bring my bike next time!
