A hilly and slightly rocky green tunnel. Forecast called for 85 during the day, and with the trees over head I was very comfortable day and night. It was free for me to just grab my backpack and hit the trail for an overnight adventure. I made it 10 miles in after half a day of hiking, and found my spot across an empty field. If you buy a permit there are primitive campsites. I took one garbage bag and quickly realized I should have brought 2. Do your part to leave no trace. I will come back to do the whole trail soon.

The sections closer to the water that I did were very buggy and put a bit of a damper on otherwise nice forest path Very well marked trail

Absolutely love this trail!! It is especially beautiful now with the vibrant green trees and vegetation, but is a great trail year round! There are some areas that are very muddy now, but you’re able to walk around them for the most part. Perfect place to go for some quiet time in nature... I have been multiple times and have never seen another hiker! Also a great trail for dogs!

This specific trail was closed. Attempted to pick the trail up somewhere else. Giving a 5 star rating due to the fact I can’t fairly evaluate the trail.

Really enjoyed this segment, lots of wildlife. I didn’t see anyone the whole time, there are some rough patches where the trail is shared with horseback riders but it’s still possible if you take your time. Trail was well-maintained and marked.

Wonderful hike! Did 6 in and hit a wash out and turned around. Was more on the easy side for our taste but a beautiful hike. Lots of little flowers, birds chirping and usually near a stream or lake so nice views the whole time. Well maintained trail including the bridges on the path. Will go again and do another section of the walk.

My two sons and I walked 18 miles of the trail from souther trail head north last week. Someone had ridden a 4-wheeler the first six miles of the trail. We've had a lot of rain, so they tore it up pretty good. It was sloppy. Otherwise, it's an easy flat walk. I like the northern section better. There are more water sources in the north and the trail is prettier. We did see turkey, deer, etc. We stashed our own supply of water. This can be an issue in the south.

Backpacking

Backpacked 27 miles in 2 days and nights along this trail. It has far more hills than the much flatter south end of the N/S trail. Was a exhilarating experience. As with many trails, watch out for washed up roots on inclines, they will catch a foot quite easily. There are several trailheads along the way so can be hiked in increments if not looking to overnight.

I took six Boy Scouts hiking along this trail. Fall Break 2019, we start south from the Northern Welcome Station and made it to the Golden Pond Visitor Center. The first 32 miles had a lot of elevation change and was very rocky. I spent most of my time looking down watching where I placed every step due to bruising the bottom of my feet on the rocks. That said it was challenging. Spring Break 2020, We set out to finish the trail from the Golden Pond Visitor Center to the South Visitor Center a little over ~23 miles. We did another 20+ on other nearby trails to finish up the Merit Badge mileage. This time of year was very rainy and most of the trails were thick with mud. The southern section is not as hilly nor rocky. But the had a lot of horse traffic which made the trail uneven and hazardous if you are not watching your step. It was a very enjoyable trek that professional hikers would make in 2-3 days. I highly recommend it. Plan your water stops as most of LBL is undeveloped. Potable Water can be obtained at both Welcome Stations and at the dump station near the Golden Pond Visitor Center. Enjoy!!!

Backpacked part of the trail with my daughter last weekend. Beautiful forest, well-marked trail, just the right amount of challenging and the right amount of easy hiking. Very little water in streams or drainages, but you can follow some of the forest service roads to the lake to filter water. In some of the low places at the edge of inlets there’s some trash from past river floods. We had brought a couple of plastic grocery bags specifically for hauling out found trash, and quickly filled these up in one such area. I encourage other hikers to do the same. Let’s clean up our trails, guys!

Main trail is mostly paved. Poor signage though and we went off the trail several times.

Comenzamos en el South welcome Station de LBL el 4 de julio a las 8:30 am nos llovió casi todo el día, eso no ayudó con el calor, caminamos durante 10 horas 18 millas en total, a las 6:30 pm montamos tienda cerca del sendero y dormimos no cocinamos porque estábamos cansados y teníamos poca agua, cabe mencionar que la zona sur del trail no hay agua en verano. El 5 de julio a las 7:30 ya estábamos de pie y listos para comenzar, aproximadamente 5 millas antes de Golden pond, el terreno es fangoso por los cabellos, eso es terrible. Al rededor de la 1:00pm estábamos en Golden Pond Visitor Center decidimos suspender la travesía porque nuestros pies estaban cansados y con ampollas. En otras palabras solo logramos hacer la mitad de todo el trail 28 millas en total en 1 día y medio. A finales de septiembre volveré para completarlo. Saludos!
