I think that this was a good trail around the lake. I thought the old dam was cool looking!

Moderately easy trail. Some spots the trail is overgrown and gets narrow. Would recommend bug spray to keep the ticks off in the overgrown areas. We jumped on the Cabin Trail from the gift shop back to the trailhead.

Love this park and this trail. Slight elevation changes and rocky parts make for a nice workout, but nothing too crazy or strenuous. Bug spray recommended, and maybe carry a stick to knock down the many spiderwebs that cross the trail, and be on the lookout for snakes during warm months.

Decent trail. Nothing strenuous. It says 4.2 miles on this app but it’s really only about 3.2 miles according to the map in the visitor center.

I would suggest starting the trail on the left side of the road entering the park, giving you an easier rise up to the highest point. The trail is not a complete loop and you will have to walk on the main road for a short stretch. Nicely maintained around the lake.

The Huckleberry Trail is great! Watch for the signs at the bike intersection and make sure to follow a map!

Good trail, watch the markers carefully when it intersects with the bike trail

The creeks were bare for most of the trail and we encountered more spider webs than one might expect in a haunted house. There were two snakes on the trail as well so be careful!!! I would consider going back during the winter when there are far fewer bugs.

Beautiful, quiet, hike. Lots of greenery, frogs, lizards, and lovely creek views. The babbling water is so peaceful.

it's a pretty beaten down path but a lot of rain has made the path a little rocky but it does need to be trim upped the overgrowth but we went right after a rain so all the creeks were moving pretty good overall a good trail

We loved this hike! Great views - a place to swim if you wanted to ... pretty trails and we didn't see a single person out there! Enough up and downs to make it a workout. Shady at times and nice breeze off the lake other times. Terrific hike! Neat gift shop with friendly staff. Thumbs up.

*DISCLAIMER: I did not complete the full Huckleberry Trail. I will explain why in the trail maintenance section of my review.
Arrival Time: 10:15 a.m.
Departure Time: 1:00 p.m.
TRAIL MAINTENANCE: The trail was well maintained. There was no human trash on or near the trail. There was some debris from a recent rain that did cause a few sections of the trail to be more difficult. Near one of the bridges, there were a few logs and a large pile of small limbs and leaves against it. This made it slightly difficult to get onto the bridge, but not too bad. This was evident in a few other places, where the runoff water had pushed debris onto the trail causing a trip or two. This is natural and I do not blame the park ranger for this. I am just expressing that there may be small "bumps in the road." One of those bumps, was part of the Huckleberry Trail being closed. Roughly a week and a half before my arrival, the area got a large amount of rain. This caused a part of the trail to be closed. I understand this, I just wish this information would have been available. As I did not complete the trail, I will be returning to finish it. I would advise calling ahead to make sure this does not happen to you.
ANIMAL AND PLANT LIFE: The plant life is wonderful. Yellow, purple, white, and pink flowers can be seen. Honeysuckle is common and the area smells of it. Along the few small creeks, it grows heavy. Large oak trees provide amble shade, while smaller trees are plentiful. Along the Woolly Cabin Trail, there are some evergreen trees. As for animals, small lizards can be seen and heard. Birds were not as common, but some did make an appearance. Box turtles, the size of a baseball, can be seen roaming between the trees. I saw four on the trail. Upon seeing you, they either hide in their shells or walk off the trail a few feet. They may hiss, if you get too close, but otherwise do nothing threatening.
WARNING: Ticks are common. I pulled two off my leg while walking. Upon leaving the trail, one fell in my hair. I advise that you wear some form of head covering (hat or scarf-like wrap). Bug repellent may be needed. Near the water areas the bugs are active. They do bite and may leave small marks on the skin. Some of the low plants may cause skin irritations, such at itchiness.
CAMPING: I did not camp here, but did walk through the area. The electrical sites were well suited for a camper or RV. There were a few spots that had little to no shade, most had shade. The non-electric campsites were well shaded and had enough room for a large tent or multiple small ones. The restrooms were clean and were private. There was the main camping bathroom with a shower and two at the beach area (Separate men and women's). The beach area was decently sized. It contained benches and a few picnic benches for meals. They had a small area with information about the lake and about the founder. You can rent a canoe, kayak, fishing boat (no motor), or a pedal boat to take around the lake. I went on a very windy day, and did not get to try them out.

Overall, I am happy with this trail. It was wonderful and I recommend it.

The lake is sometimes drained partially for maintenance, but still a great walk.

Good trail that's easy to access

Great short hikes for little kids. With very nice swimming beach and picnic area, it made for a nice all day family outing.

This is a nice little loop trail. Nothing spectacular, but a good hike. Good views of the lake and a waterfall when the water is flowing.

Monday, July 18, 2016

Really awesome hiking and biking trails!! Great lake to swim in, food to eat, and camping sites!! I would venture back!!

Saturday, July 09, 2016

I thought it was interesting how diverse this trail was for being so short. While it wasn't spectacular, it was definitely worth the drive and I would return.

Monday, June 06, 2016

A little overgrown on the paths but overall a good experience.

Saturday, June 04, 2016

Turned left and took the shorter Cabin Trail. Easy ...especially for new beginning kiddos. Enjoyed it.

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

This was actually nicer than I thought it would be. A nice little hike to take the kids on.

Monday, September 07, 2015

Nice easy trail with a few ups and downs. Unfortunately I went in the summer and the waterfall was reduced to a small stream. Plan to come back in the fall and give it another go!

Did this one a few years back after alot of snow, and it was fantastic. Took all the dogs and they had no problem. Well marked and easy enough to do.

Spring is a great time to hike this trail; there are red wildflowers along it and dogwoods blooming in late April. The weather was great, too--cool breezes until the end when it started to warm up more. There are also opportunities to see little creatures along the trail; we saw a turtle, lizards, and a snake! This is a woodsy trail that runs the circuit around the lake. There are a few small bridges to cross and some views of the lake from benches at the beginning. Be prepared for some exertion at the end (if you start at the trail parking lot just after entering the park). There are a lot of steps up the hill when you go from the road back onto the trail for the last part.

We also did the Gold Creek Trail and Cabin Trail which both spur off of the Huckleberry. The Gold Creek is 1/5 mile, and the Cabin Trail is 1/2 mile, so they are both pretty short. The Gold one runs parallel briefly to the Huckleberry, only down by the creek. The Cabin one takes you to the old cabin and well that can be seen from the road.
