Grew up in Douglas near state forest. Hiked midstate more times than I can count. Well marked and low traffic. Tri state marker is nearby.

Love this park. It's huge and beautiful scenery and wild life

Great for small hikes with the little kids!

Love this part of Douglas State Forest. Not very busy and the scenery along the trails is refreshing.

Very nice trail!
