This is an alright trail, but it is extremely muddy and wet. Also, not that much to see.

Lots of mud in the low points. Otherwise nice for a March afternoon

Nice long trail split into two loops so you can shorten your trip if needed. Nearby shooting range is the only downside. Really loud and obnoxious.

Likely better in summer. Had two cool bridges. Lake views most of the way. Muddy and gray on a mild winters day

Very nice trail with good views. We went in January so it was easy to see all the lakes. Beware that hunting is allowed here between September and March and we could hear distant gunfire most of the hike. You should wear something brightly colored if hiking at this time.

I agree with most people who have done the trail, it’s really nice but you definitely notice the shooting range noise.

Absolutely gorgeous day for a hike. Brilliant sunshine and deep blue skies were the perfect backdrop for a nice hike with our Airedale. We’ll be back for this one.
