Way too hot today, but a gorgeous trail. Seemed like a lot of elevation gain/loss, and some parts of the trail were a little tricky...looking forward to doing it again in the Fall as there are a lot of hardwoods and the lake is beautiful.

Very challenging/difficult, yet beautiful trail. We took the entire loop, which is around 4 miles. We stopped for about 15 min to eat lunch and maybe another 10-15 min to take misc pictures. The entire loop from the parking area and back took us right at 3 hours backpacking a toddler and hiking with teens and moving at a steady pace. Luckily, it was overcast and a very light rain to keep things cool for us during the last week of June! And even with bug spray/tick repellant, we ended up finding a few ticks on us too... just check well!

This hike was a blast. I would say that it was more on the difficult side of moderate. There were some areas that were a bit sketchy to navigate, and a lot of ups and downs. As other people mentioned, the pine needles could be a bit slippery. The views of the lake were amazing and there was a ton of cool types of lichen, moss, and rocks. It took us about 1.75-2 hours.

Fun trail with good views of Lake Martin and Chimney Rock. The trail is moderate with some fairly steep sections. Just over 4 miles including the walk to and from the parking lot. Trail is well-marked, but the fallen pine straw made for some slippery conditions. The best views are on the second half of the hike, and there are a few good spots to stop and relax on some boulders. Will definitely be returning soon.
