Saw lots of deer. Nice rock and gravel paths with some mud patches. Just after rain. Not to challenging. Enjoyable

Trails was ok. Very short walk and ends without completing a full loop. Go during the summer and you’re bound to deal with roundly noises from lake parties. I enjoyed the elevation gains and the lake views were nice though.

This trail is okay. Lots of shattered glass along the way. There is some views of beaver lake but mostly blocked by trees. Lots of deer and saw a few snake dens. The trail is pretty, but would be aware of surroundings while on it.

This is a great little trail! It has a little climbing to it with a decent view of the lake. There were a few little muddy spots and a few washed out areas but you’re still able to find the trail again. Took my 6yo with me and she loved it. Definitely recommend.

Great trail, but it was a bit hard to notice where it started. You get good views of Beaver Lake. Some parts of the trail are right next to the lake and some parts are a bit steep. It was hard to follow in some areas, and in one area by the water it was a little muddy, but still fun.

My husband and I brought our 3 year old and 6 year old kids with us on this trail, and they loved it! It has some spots that are pretty rocky and steep, but it’s a good challenge. It also has a beautiful view of Beaver Lake. The only downside to this trail is that there are a TON of gnats in a couple areas. I would recommend this trail to people that want a challenging hike but want to keep it short.

Roads to trail are closed right now. Leaves totally covered the trail but still easy to navigate. If you keep the all trails tracking open.

The reason I’m giving this train one star is because when I arrived at the park there were no signs or posting of ANY kind to indicate where the trail is located or goes. And asking the park attendant wasn’t helpful since she only told us where to park not where the trail began. A complete waste of time and fuel. I would not recommend.

Nice little trail if you don’t mind paying the 4 dollars to get in. It looks like the trail has been marked recently so it was not difficult to navigate. Lots of dry leaves on the trail so be careful not to slip.

Nice verity of views, and moderately challenging! Not the best maintained, but this trail is for you if you’re down to blaze a trail.

It's was alright if you're looking for a short hike with little kids. The trail was not well kept, and couldn't find the trailhead anywhere. Happened to stumble upon the trail after walking towards the lake a little ways.

Nice, local trail that I'd happily go to for a quick morning walk. If you come in early on a Sunday morning (before 9am) there's usually no guard at the stand. I'm not advocating skipping the fee. Just saying it does get bothersome with a $40 fee annually to each state park and no annual pass to all. I followed the trail to the south first and found it easy to follow up to the last quarter mile, then took the road back up.

easy to get lost. nice trail though and somewhat challenging. seemed longer than a mile. last half of trail is confusing but scenic as it follows along and under massive boulders and rocky ledges. we followed the road through campgrounds to get back to car.

It is a moderate trail but it can be kind of easy to get lost.

Short and sweet. Nice trail for a moderate hike. No "wow" features, but the big climbing tree and cave made it much more interesting!

Since this is within the Prairie Creek Day Use camping area you have to pay $4 to hike the trail if your not already camping. That would however give u access to the full day use area like swimming and playground during the Season. Since that area of the camp ground wasn't open for season yet we had to park and walk about .2 miles to the trailhead. It was a very pretty walk above the top of the bluff with single track. It's a mile hike with an easy decent down but was rocky and uneven in places which was hard for our 3 year olds but would be no worry for adults. There were some sketchy rocky spots on the section along the base of the bluff which made it harder for children. Again wouldn't be too difficult for an adult. There were some loose rocks that added difficulty but the views were beautiful and it was quiet and relaxing. Towards the end you come out on one of the roads for the campgrounds and I believe u would continue uphill on a trail but it wasn't easily found so we just walked the road back the last bit uphill to our car. Im sure in season the end of the trail will be easier to find. All and all we will come back when we are looking for a short, close hike.
