Definitely a fun trail. Great on either end, a little boring in the middle. We loved it.

Need a t-shirt that says, “We got lost at Fort Mountain State Park.” We tried this one but got turned around a few times and it was pretty strenuous, so we will be getting in better shape, mapping it out, and hitting it at a later date!

HikingGreat!MuddyOver grownRocky

The transition from Big Rock to Gahuti was INTENSE. It was very very rocky, and challenging to navigate with a toddler hiking backpack. Beautiful. Multiple creek crossings on the Goldmine Creek part. Went on Friday morning, saw no one else on the trail until the very end when we had to go on lake trail. As we left it seemed like a lot of folks were coming in to camp for the weekend. Seemed longer than 3.5 miles.

Really beautiful trail! Heavily wooded and sometimes it is hard to find the trail. Watch blazes carefully and you’ll find your way.

Nice loop that has a lot of features. Creeks, a lake, and a view of the valley of you do it in the fall or winter. Good hike to get you prepared for ghauti trail.

Did this section trail this weekend. Make sure you follow the correct blazes or you could get off course. Beautiful, cool and lush. Lovely views and small waterfall.

Started this loop trail at the lake trail then hit the gold mine trail to the guhati trail to big rock and finished the loop back to the lake trail. Great views with lots of Rhododendron to meander through. Finish with a nice waterfall.

Absolutely lovely trail with lots to see. Loved the hike through the streams and waterfalls. Did this Christmas day, so no one was on it. A lull in middle of trail, but it was absolutely serene. Great meditation spot.

This is a fun run. On busy days, the Lake Trail is a challenge to run due to all of the people out for leisurely strolls.
