beautiful hike! didnt see one person the entire way. bring a TON of water, sunscreen, and light clothing. i hiked this trail around 3pm and the sun and heat was almost unbearable. not a good first time hike and not for unexperienced hikers.

My husband and I (50+) enjoyed our time on this trail. It was a good cardio/leg workout. We saw a mother deer and her two foal, and a snake. It was lying atop a mossy rock right after the overlook. It was the same color green.
The difference between the tornado ravaged area and the untouched area was varied.
This was a long hike that provided beautiful and varied scenic looks.

The entire State Park is very well-kept. The trail is very clean and provides a great view of the lake! The loop provides various changes in scenery and a lot of wildlife! The hike was moderate, with a few decent inclines, taking 3-4 hours. I would not recommend bringing small children or as a first hike.

This was a fun little trail that I enjoyed early in the morning before it got too hot. Beautiful views of the lake and dense forest. Lots of educational signs giving history and information about the area all along the way. Nice places to step off-trail and swim in the lake. Just a great little hike.

Gorgeous area with clearly marked trail. Not too strenuous, only two areas with a fairly steep incline but not too bad.

This trail offers great views of Lake Ouachita and the Ouachita mountains. This trail is well maintained and marked. Interpretive signs along the trail add to the experience. We first hiked this trail in 2012 as it was recovering from tornado damage the year before. It’s come a long way since.

This was a great little trail! The frequent views of the lake were stunning. For me, it was just the right difficulty level- difficult enough that it didn’t feel like just a walk, but easy enough that I wasn’t completely worn out at the end.

Extremely well maintained trail; fairly well marked. Absolutely fantastic views and enough elevation changes to keep it interesting.

I was concerned this would be a very strenuous trail, but it was definitely doable. Gorgeous views and enough challenges to keep it interesting.

wonderful trail. the views of the lake were abundant. park service also put up some great plaques that give a hiker some good scientific and historical factoids. just know the trail is challenging with some steep ascents and descents. plus it's a rugged trail. wear sturdy boots.

Lots of beautiful scenery, and lots of up and over hills. There's interesting information on the trail about the after effects of a tornado touching down in the area some years back. Nice boulder field.

We took our 6 and 8 year old for this hike, accomplished it right at 2 hours. The scenery was great and it was the perfect way to spend a Saturday morning. We will definitely do this again.

Trail is maintained for the most part. Towards the end it's grow up a tad but not to bad. Nice swimming area shortly after starting the trail but nothing farther along. Completed with two dogs and a 8 year old. I'd definitely do this trail again
