All trails are back open! Center loop (orange markers) was a great 3-mile hike out to the lake and back. Caught a glimpse of a bald eagle. Be mindful of ticks. Will definitely come back for the East Loop.

My family came several times during the Christmas vacation with everyone from 70 to 5 years old. We did the West Loop and Central Loop. We will come back next week to do the East Loop. The whole family loves these trails.

Trail was wonderful! For those who enjoy mosses, mushrooms, and lichens—this is the place for you. Took dogs. It was an easy hike. Weather was overcast and cool and all of the bridges of the streams were secure. Definitely coming back again.

Well marked and clear. Very pleasant trail. Easy. Came across one primitive campsite on the central trail.

The markings weren’t idiot-proof (for this idiot) to keep me from straying off the trail-proper, but the app’s overlays kept me in the vicinity. A good hike anyway. And though I wish it was true, I doubt I burned 970 calories during a 3-mile hike.

Trail is not well kept. Got lost a few times since the trail markers were very faded. Finally gave up this trail and ended up doing the West trail instead.

Nice easy hike. Don't let the deers scare you when they jump out. All 3 trails combine for 9 miles and is a nice 3 hour hike.
