Great trail with great views of the lake and wildlife! Loved the backcountry policy on camping overnight! Will definitely return!

This was a great trail with some amazing views. The Lake Barkley side features more gently rolling hills while the Kentucky Lake side has steeper hills with some great mountain biking terrain. One huge negative was the hunters and their dogs we encountered directly on the trail near Forestry Service Road 102. One of the dogs blocked our path and bared its teeth, and it took several tense minutes for the owner to gain control. I'm all for licensed hunting in the park but not within 150 yards of the trails. This was an otherwise nice hike and rated moderate mostly for distance.

The trail is really good for all family members. Look out for the mountain bikers throughout the trail. If you are a nature's lover, you will get to see bald eagles in the area hunting. Nice places to take a photo right next to the lake area. Overall was a great hike, I recommend it.
