Great trail! Not as lightly trafficked as thought, but still worth it. Perfect amount of sun and shade.

walking around Goldwater Lake is lovely, but the trail on the lake stops at the dam. there is an alternate path (the one on this so depicts) that does pass by the other lake, but you can't get down to it. there were more bikers than hikers, but everyone was very friendly. Lovely day for a hike.

Loved this trail! Started at White Spar campground and only went as far as the waterfall, but great little hike. There's a lot of water right now (mid-March)- it crossed the trail in 2 spots and I fell in crossing on a rotted-out log, lol, but it was fine.

Great trail, view of the dam briefly but we didn't split off to go down the path that looked like it may have taken us closer. Went in October leaves were changing, scared a snake while walking and almost stepped on it. With leaves on the ground watch your step!

Trail was nice but we didn't know that it didn't go all the way around the lake. We got to the other side and it ended and had to make our way all the way back. Also there were a lot of small flying bugs so when hiking it was hard to not breathe some in.

First hike for my kids. The older one was a trooper. The younger had a few complaints but overall A nice, leisurely walk through the woods.

Loved the variety,scenery and shade. However not very difficult given the fact that the elevation is very minimal. I will definitely go again
