Did this hike and the sink hole trail together, I loved the area, the woods, lake and sink hole are beautiful. Looks like the Forest Service put a lot of time and money into building the trails and various boardwalks, but it’s disappointing how run down and overgrown everything has become. It doesn’t look like these trails get much use. We had to crawl around, over and under a lot of blow downs. These trails would be rated much higher if it wasn’t for the maintenance issues. But I still loved the hike and would go back.

A nice loop trail. Several views of the water from platforms. Well maintained and flat trail. There is a toilet at the trail head for both the Sinkhole and this trail. No bugs for us!

Definitely not one of my favorite trails. The sinkhole trail is down for construction so I took the loop trail that goes by the “lake” which is more so a swamp—and not a scenic swamp ha. Lots of bugs as well!

First to Review

Nice trail. Easy walk under a green tunnel. Path doesn’t appear to be particularly well traveled or maintained, but that adds to the feeling of being out in the Forest. Very secluded and quiet. Bugs weren’t much of an issue today. Came across a coral snake on the trail. Eaton Lake is beautiful and interesting. Several boardwalks to the water’s edge for viewing (Boardwalk has a few small holes, so watch your step). Did part of the Eaton Lake Sinkhole trail as well. More overgrown and not as scenic, but still a nice trail that leads to a deep sinkhole.
