We liked this trail, kind of muddy in a few places but it had just rained the morning of the day we went. Easy enough with my five year old. The overlook is at about the halfway point and has a stone bench you can sit on. We stayed there for about ten minutes, very peaceful. The trail seems well maintained, much more than the overlook trail on the other side.

Nice family friendly trail. The orange and red color markings are a little hard to distinguish though.

If driving in, don't miss the turn off by the AG church. Ask me how I know. Pretty trail, not hard. After all the rain lately, it was just a little muddy, but not bad. The cemetery is very cool. Some nice views along the way. Don't forget the bug spray! Of course there are mosquitos and plenty of spider webs, and some huge daddy long legs spiders! It was pretty cool to see nests of the spiders. Like others, we ended up with seed ticks (but I'll admit I forgot the bug spray).

Cemetery Loop is a nice, quiet trail that is fairly easy to hike. The view from Rock Bench of the western end of Lee Creek Reservoir is very scenic and peaceful.

The trail is a well maintained and well marked trail. Nice overlook at the top of the loop, along with a cemetery at the bottom of the hill and a couple of grave stone markers at the top. The entrance gate has been closed for months, but you are allowed to park at the gate and walk to the trail head about .25 mile down the road.
