The dogs and I loved it! Lots of varying elevation. I didn't look at any trail maps beforehand, assuming there would be one big loop. However, one can choose a variety of paths. The trail markers are marked with labels A through G, as far as I can tell. Eventually we found the lake and had some play time. Then we walked alongside the road back to our car, because I was worried it would get dark if I spent much more time on the trails. I would totally go back! And I would study the map next time. ;)

Loved this hike today - I only did the lake loop but will go back and explore the other parts of the trail. Took my dog and we both enjoyed the scenery and trek.

Awesome hike!!! Amazing views!!!

This is an awesome trail system for getting lost (but in a comfortable way provided it's early enough in the day!!!) ...the sand padded trails are rich with moss and mushrooms. Fall is the best time to explore when there are no crowds and girl and dog can be free!!!

Easy fun trail that intersects with Dune Ridge trails and makes for a silly adventure. Great for my dog too!!! Great moss and small growth, I love hiking at the end of summer-start of fall when there is no one around!!

Second trip- we took the ranger recommended "easy" loop to Lost Lake, then ended up on the "Hearty Hiker" trail back. Knowing the map wasn't accurate helped make this loop go smoothly. Beautiful views atop the ridges.

Trip one netted a view of nesting eagles, and we took the fairly difficult dune trail back from the rv lots. Harder than the "difficult" rated forest hike, IMHO.

Then we got lost because the map we had doesn't show the trails the way they actually are. My tip would be to snap a pic of the state park map at the rangers station- much more accurate than the paper hiking map they hand out.

Obviously we ended up getting "unlost" eventually- we had a lake on one side & a road on the other so we knew roughly where we were.

Tree lines are beautiful. Ask the rangers about the eagles' nest location. Definitely one of the more challenging hikes we've done in 2015!

One star off for inaccurate maps.
