Picture yourself on the banks of a beautiful lake, surrounded by shady oaks and rolling hills. The presence of a graceful heron on the water, or deer or even a wild turkey in the nearby brush may be visible. A tug on the fishing line brings you back to the task at hand -- reeling in the first or your limit of largemouth bass, bluegill or crappie. As the sun comes up, take a swim at sandy Rocky Point Beach. The rest of the day offers many options, from hiking on the nature trails, to softball or volleyball at the Circle Drive Picnic Area to water skiing. Or, you may want to spend the night at the Oak Ridge Campground. All of this, and more, awaits visitors to Stephen A. Forbes State Recreation Area.

Did this at the beginning of the year while biking and running at the park, which by the way is great for....otherwise, Easy, great as a beginner to see if hiking is your thing. Great for kids because its short and most likely wont be asking, "Are we there yet!" , or "carry me I'm tired",lol

Not bad, it was also easy with rolling hills, some areas you could see the lake, nothing spectacular but if camping worth it as part of you day hikes
