on Horseshoe Trail

If you start at the Pretzel House, go through red gate to reach trail. Steady, moderate uphill to Eagle Rock. Very nice, wooded trail, easily marked.

Nicely challenging for trail running. There are lots of rocks so just be cautious of your footing.

I love this area. I've explored several trails in this area and the creek in multiple directions. This area is great for hiking and biking and there is plenty of parking.

We treated this as a choose your own adventure kind of day. Started at the horseshoe trail entrance then veered left and went up the big rocks following the blue blazes. Eventually we got near camp Mack territory and just hopped around on different trails slowly making our way back towards where we started. We did hit a steep incline through some tall grass around the halfway point and picked up some ticks. All in all, nice day and nice hike!

Had a scout camp and I wasn't sure if I could walk around it.

Beautiful in the rain and fog. Unfortunately, there was a stash of dirty magazines that I stumbled upon which were tucked behind a tree. They looked relatively clean which led me to believe they were left there recently. This combined with an suv parked along the road with doors and windows wide open (in the rain) was enough for me to suggest that hikers not attempt this section of trail alone like I did.

Other than the first two miles, the path we took is nothing exciting. I would recommend doing the initial climb and the rest of the hike through the woods after the parking lot at the top, then turning around and going back the way you came once you hit the atv trail. That's all it is the rest of the way…atv trail with lots of ticks. Good for distance and general exercise but nothing scenic and depending on the time of day you better bring sunscreen. Will not be returning to this one.
