The gently rolling hills, lush forests and sparkling waters disguise a land that has endured the effects of continental glaciers and massive mineral extraction. Each year over one million people visit the 16,725-acre park, yet never realize that many people helped restore the park from prior coal mining and oil and gas drilling practices. Today, the park is an outstanding example of environmental engineering achievement.

the bottom section of this trail is swampy, and at the moment has lots of trees down, it gets better once you start climbing, the 1.5 mile loop at the top is great and you can park at that trailhead instead of slogging though this bottom section.

Decent trail. Was kind of hoping for a view of Lake Arthur, but that was not the case. A pretty standard hike, a little boring in fall to be honest, but good nonetheless.

This is listed as moderate but was fairly easy. The road to the trailhead was closed for the season so we had to find an alternate entry point with assistance from a hunter familiar with the area. I will agree with the other reviewers that the trail is confusing so use your GPS. We got turned around a few times, but easily found our way back. We had to walk the paved bike road which was nice as it was along the lake. The scenery was pretty even though the trees had lost most of their leaves. I would do this trail again.

Nice but lots of ticks. Took my two dogs on leashes but they are always running along the edges of the trail and into brush. Luckily they are light colored and ticks are easy to see; I took 10 ticks off their coats in the parking lot, and another 8 off them when I got home.

We took our girls and boys troop on this trail to work on their hiking badge. It was a great challenging but not too difficult of a hike for all of us. Our dog really enjoyed the hike too. Would recommend if you're up for a good challenging hike.

We parked at the bike rental place and had to ask a worker where this trail was. There is a trailhead for North Country Trail (Glacier) ~ but this one is to the right of it under the telephone lines (not marked.) It takes you down a gravel path and includes a short side trail to the butterfly trail. We saw a wedding type gazebo including seating. There is a little pond and arch with bench to sit under. There are many great views of the lake and dam most of the way. You will also go by the gift shop. It is out and back. This is one of my favorite trails!

Overall, we liked this trail but we couldn't find the trailhead, which was frustrating. We looked over to the area where it should have been but didn't see any signs and some canoes blocked the view of the little bridge. We ended up entering the trail behind the cabin right there near the parking area and took the Glacier Ridge Trail until it met up with the trail outlined here. We went in October. There were only a couple of muddy spots and it wasn't buggy as some that went during the summer experienced.

Very isolated trail even though it is near the lake. A nice walk in the woods, but not scenic and no destination at the end. When you reach the oil rig the trail is hard to find again and quickly became impassable because of thick overgrown thorns. The 1.5 mile loop at the start is thicker with cobwebs and brush, whereas the 2+ mile section heading to the oil rig is nicer trail (you do this part out-and-back).

Much of the trail isn’t as it appears on AllTrails but use common sense and you’ll figure it out

Very nice trail. Moderate traffic.The trail was kept nice and was shaded nicely. The lake looked wonderful.

This trail runs along the same path as North Country Trail in some places but is easy to find from the maps in AllTrails. The trail is very narrow in some sections and there are plenty of roots to navigate. There is plenty of canopy and only a couple places that are actually not in the shade so this is a plus. There are several small bridges that take you across ponds or streams. There are also a few spots where you have to get around muddy spots but not a big deal.

Easy+, nice surface, beautiful flowers and butterflies. Well kept and rest rooms along the way. Relaxing and quiet

I didn't much care for this trail because it was overgrown in places. And the only noticeable wildflowers were those tiny yellow ones. There wasn't even anything worth taking a picture of. I won't be doing that trail again.
