Took my daughter here for her first state park hike and she loved it. Before you go, call the park. you can only do an out and back on this trail due to construction on the spill way. We ended up hiking around 8 miles. Saw 2 deer, frogs, plenty of spiders across the trail, and an eagle. enjoyed the quiet hike and will return when we can complete the loop.

Moderately technical. Small hills add interest. Winding and fun!

Great hike in a good challenge. Be aware part of the trail was closed on February 9, 2017. Just cut out the most scenic part of the trail if you're coming from the trailhead going counterclockwise. Well marked in a good trail.

Trails well marked and easy to follow. There are lots of other trails to take if you want more or less miles to hike. We didn't see much wildlife as park was packed with people. Enjoyable hike in the outdoors as scenery changes often.
