Lots of mosquitoes after a rain

Always a good hike here. Great views of the river. It can get really bug infested in summertime. Protective clothing and deet are recommended.

I will add to the mosquito issue, don't go without bug spray! Otherwise a nice hike. will take the extended hike next time. Hopefully will have longer views of the river.

Tons of bugs but 100% shade and great views of the river.

This is a nice, scenic trail, but not exactly what I was looking for. Not very long, and it is extremely crowded. Some may enjoy this more than others. If you want seclusion and a long, strenuous trek, hike the Buford Mountain State Forest Trail.

The scenery is just amazing. Definitely bring water and a camera. Many parts of the trail are pretty muddy, however, so be sure to dress appropriately (or bring extra towels for the dogs). Several amazing spots to stop and enjoy the scenery! Easily my favorite trail to hike with the dogs. If you bring dogs, just be aware that the past few times we've visited there has been NO trash can to dispose of poop bags, either in the parking lot or along any part of the path!! VERY VERY BUSY ON WEEKENDS, parking may be difficult!! If you're planning on going on the weekend, be sure to come early!

I hiked the Clark loop (5.3 miles) on 6/4/17. The loop took me about 2 hours. Trail was in great condition and well marked. Mosquitos were a problem. I started the loop at about 6am and had the trail to myself. I will be back to complete the Lewis loop soon!
