Awesome trail with some really cool sights!

Great wooded trail. Good waterfalls and cliff overlook. Great foliage too

Trail connects with the welcome center, and can be extended to connect up with the rim trail that encircles the entire south side of the lake. There is a wonderful little place on the water to take a lunch break - the butterflies seemed to think so, too!

Completed this as part of the Loop Trail. Well maintained, with a nice overlook of the creek and a swinging bridge. Pioneer village is also a wonderful place to take a break and eat some food from your pack.

Absolutely fantastic scenery, was continuously surprised all the way around. At times you are right up next to the water, and other times in the thick of the woods. The eastern half felt more remote. Can link up this route with the George Loop trail to avoid some of the road travel. Very well maintained route - quite possibly the best day hike in Ohio.

Nice hike. I stretched it out to 15.9 with a couple of the side trails thrown in. Will definitely do it again possibly take the Buckeye Trail further north from the bridge to the north end of the lake and back. Lost my Fitbit in the last couple of miles before you get to the bridge on the west side if anyone comes across it:)

I cant quite call it "as good as it gets" (which is a 5 star apparently), but this was a beautiful, easy hike. There was a fun rope bridge and a small waterfall, and if you take a detour to the pioneer village, there are some cool old buildings. One of my favorite trails I've found so far!

Perfect little loop! You can take the nature trail off the loop and cross the road to link up with some other trails in the area if you want an extension.

This is a long hike (13.4 miles for me) with some short uphill sections. The trial has lots of tree roots so watch your steps.

I was there on a very warm Saturday in mid-September and there were NO bugs the entire 13 miles! This was HUGE plus!

The South part of the lake is much prettier than the north-east side.

There are no functioning drinking fountains at the restrooms so I had to drink from the sinks. That was a negative.

worth the trip to spend the day in the woods

the trail was well maintained and a perfect hike for our 2 dogs. there are a lot of stairs but it wasnt bad. there is a nice area we let the dogs play in the creek just off the path.

Okay trail. I used it for running and got lost which is probably my own fault but the trails were a bit overgrown and very technical. I would recommend this trail for hiking and enjoying nature rather than running. Very beautiful had I taken the time to enjoy it.

If you like cute puppies and a lot of stairs, this trail is for you! My wife and I hiked it this afternoon, good terrain and a nice clear path for beginners.

Great trails! Beautiful scenery!

Second time on this stretch of Perimeter Trail, spotted a Bald Eagle, an owl, couple of ground hogs, squirrels and plenty of birds. Another nice hike.

nice trail but very buggy

My grand beasts and I call it “the edge of the world” trail....great views without foliage and a beautiful well kept trail with many places for young kids to explore

One of my favorites! many up and down hills, includes swinging bridge

Very pretty, well marked. not a fan of walking across the highway but have to get over the lake somehow

Great park with a lot of amenities

Very nice trail, one of the better ones I've been on. Great views and a couple nice water features. Trail maintainers have done a great job, you can tell they are actively to working to repair the few washed out bridges and blow downs from the flooding this winter/spring. I started at the trail head at the Visitors Center and went south. Next time I will go north 1st and get the hilly section done with fresh legs. The road walking was a little unnerving, but only lasts a short while. Trail was very well blazed, would be tough to get lost.

good trail cliffs, water falls, little bit of road walking, greats views of the lake. trail is more like 12.7 miles. 4-21-18

Took our grandson who is 22 months old today. We had a blast. would recommend this trail.

Great trail

Just did this trail today was a little muddy due to the high water in flooding. But a great trail. A beautiful trail would recommend it to anyone

Decent overall, but trail could use some maintenance. Also, I went today (March 12, 2018) and two significant portions of the trail were completely underwater.
Two stretches are along roads, one of which is quite busy.
Some nice secluded stretches and a pleasant stroll through Pioneer Village.

Really nice trail. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to do all of it due to all the flooding. I would recommend waiting if it’s been raining a lot during the week or checking the water level before you go. Because, a lot of the trail is right next to the lake.
