Our first visit to Clinton Lake on the blue trail was good! The trail was well marked with blue blazes and very well kept. Single lane, well worn hiking and biking path, up hills and down hills, beautiful views of the water, squirrels, ducks, falling leaves and lots of hikers, runners and bikers throughout our 8 mile hike. Not overly crowded. The blue trail is not looping unless you venture on a more technical white trail. We opted on our first trek to stay on the blue trail up to 4 miles and turning back giving us our goal of 8 miles. We will be back and decided it could easily be a solo hike. Some trails feel more secure with a buddy but this trail is well marked.

It's a nice trail when you do not have a lot of time but still want to get out for a bit!
