Getting There

Lake views, dramatic overlook atop rocky cliff, pretty forest trail, 3 benches along the way. Ticks & chiggers not troublesome due to tread width, although one area becomes weedy in late summer. Volunteers maintain this trail once annually in autumn or winter.

Located in campground of Lakeview Park (Corps of Engineers), turn off Highway 178 onto Boat Dock Road, turn right into the campground (not the marina area). Trailhead at top of campground loop.

one of our favorite Trails so far. A little rough in some areas but mostly and easy hike. When you get to the Bluffs there are some very beautiful views.

This trail is mine and my daughters favorite so far. There is gorgeous scenery every you look, natural stone and logs lining the trail, mossy trail patches, beautiful stone that looks lated, wooden steps, and overlooks. The end of it is a breathtaking cliff and view of the damn. there are some rocky spots, it was well maintained, and all fallen trees had been cut and moved. It was easily followed as it was marked. I could see that the one small stream you cross early on could be troublesome during some seasons. We highly recommend this on.

HikingGreat!

Surprisingly rugged. Wear sturdy shoes and bring your trekking poles. Of the two reported stream crossings one was dry the other just a trickle. Great early morning hike. Not too many spider webs. Took 1 hr 30 mins. Would be a great spot to picnic on the point.

You need a boat to cross the 1st creek crossing. No signs posted about trail being flooded.

I only made it about a third of a mile before the trail became impassable from high water. I assume in dryer months this is a manageable creek crossing, but at the moment about a 30 ft stretch of trail is under probably 3 or 4 feet of water. Had to turn back.

This is a nicely kept trail that lets you get a little bit of exercise and has a nice spot for a peaceful picnic at the end.

The journey to the end is worth it. A bit rough in parts, but a great hike overall. Lots to look at the entire way.

This trail had my heart racing a couple of times, mostly due to its remoteness further in and being seemingly lightly trafficked. My dog and I tackled this thrill in June and it was slightly overgrown on the final stint toward the bluff. Unfortunately, the lake was really high and the bluff view wasn't in it's full glory, but it was a moderate trek and left us feeling fulfilled inside. Be mindful of ticks!

There wasn't a set place for us to park so we just pulled in next to the dump station- we later realized that we should've paid a 5$ vehicle fee. The hike was promising at first but we soon hit a dead end due to flooding. As of June 25, 2019, the trail was under water about a quarter mile in. The trail was a bit overgrown for me- poison ivy and ticks present.

Pretty view at the end. The hills were spread out so it made it for easier hiking but it was still got my heart rate up a bit.
