Wonderful hike. The Springfield Nature Center had a group out to hike when I arrived at The Trailhead. Apparently there was a recent controlled burn along parts of the trail. Beautiful day. Wonderful views of the lake this time of year. Didn’t see any bald eagles, but did see an armadillo.

Well blazed trail with some scenic lake views, especially during the winter. A bald eagle flew from a branch overlooking the lake as we walked by. I would rate this trail as easy and not moderate.

Trail was well maintained. Very little in the way of lake views on this section anyway. Mostly just a trail through the timber. Easily hiked. Good for kids or older folks. It does run very close to a roadway of some sort. We could hear traffic driving by quite a bit during the route. Good little offshoot to a picnic table gave us a good place to Jetboil coffee. It’s true what others have said about it being a part of the Lakeview trail.

The map isn’t correct on this trail. My son and I hiked it yesterday 3/18/18. This is a short 1.75 mile loop that is a part of the 8 mile lake view trail at the state park. This is an easy walk on a well worn trail. What’s shown on the map is just actually part of the Lake View trail.

Umber Ridge Trail is actually only a 1.75 mile loop that goes off of the larger 8 mile Lakeview Trail. This trail is a fairly easy trail, but make sure to wear the proper shoes as there are some rocky, uneven, and sometimes slippery terrain. I would say this trail is for a beginner who is looking for a little bit of a challenge. The trail is pretty well marked (it's the yellow/orange trail).
