Combine Turkey Ridge Trail and Lake Shore Trail for an extra adventure. Loved It.

Trails need some clearing but it is a wonderful adventure.

1st time there for me. 33 degree day with a fair amount of sunshine. I took Whiskey Run all the way around and got on Iron Mine and then onto Stuart's Knob to check out the summit. All in all a nice hike for me and the pups.Trail was well blazed and the tread pretty good. Lots of leaves on the trail so it was difficult to see where any rocks or stumps were which is important for a guy who has a tendency to shuffle too much LOL. The second two trails were marked as difficult. Not sure if I found them to be so. Worth the trip up there if you've never been.

Easy but nice walk along the water. Dam isn’t much to look at but the trail was calming with predominant lake view

Great trail! The markings were a little off and the maintenance is lacking due to the fact of having to pay $5 to park.

Easy trail with a pretty overlook of the lake and finally to a dam area. Very little grade hills.

A great trail that has a nice rest stop with a great view and the dam/spillway was a great place for a picnic. Trail was very easy very little up or down.

Very easy, couple of nice views (still no leaves up) and did not take much time. I think map try's to start you in a different spot. There are signs marking the lot to park in.

Overall, I enjoyed the trail. However, while on it I was wondering why it was labeled hard, there wasn't too many inclines. As we were approaching the waterfall it was a moderately steep down hill slope. It seems as though if we started going to the left side of the loop from the trail head we would have done more climbing. Wish we would have known that from the beginning! It would be worth going back again and trying the trail counterclockwise!

This is part of the Stuart's Knob Trail System in Fairy Stone State Park...not private property as listed here. This trail exceeded my expectations. There are several switchbacks with some elevation change for a short loop. You pass a couple old mine entrances (you need to take a short spur to get to one). The scenery is pretty, especially with some fall color remaining in the trees. There is also a very nice view looking down over the lake and the beach area. You can extend the hike by including the Stuart's Knob or Whiskey Run Trails, and there is plenty of room to park at the trailhead.

I visited in September. The waterfall was barely a trickle, but I can see how it would be a nice sight when the creek is running higher. The trail is about half up, then half down. Demanding in a few sections, but okay otherwise. A few creek crossings may be muddy. There are some sections that are steep, but it's not too bad. Good views at the top. This trail connects with several others in the park.

Trail was in good shape. Numerous switchbacks and views of several iron mines along the way. Traffic was nonexistent on the trail as we met no one else. Parking at trailhead was good. Overall it wasn't a bad trip.
