Great winter trail, have hiked several times, don't attempt this trail in summer time it's too grown up.

Good forest hike. Fairly simple but narrow and somewhat overgrown. We had a couple almost wrong turns if it was not for using this app and seeing where we were supposed to be going. Trail markings could be better. Cold Springs at the trail head/end were awesome. Be prepared for ticks as we came across a bunch between the 4 of us and our dog (about 15 in the 2.5 or so miles, likely just a bad year for them in general). We will definitely go back.

Do not follow the blue flags to the right. That is NOT the trail. Actual trail should be marked better and cleared. A little overgrown. But area is still beautiful. Although we hiked 3 miles in the wrong direction we still had a good time.

one of the best kept secrets in Nwga. cheap camping. the trail isn't extremely difficult but the trailhead could have been better marked.

Ditto on what Tabitha said. The April 2016 controlled burn hit almost every area of the trail except for the creek, bog, and pond areas. It was interesting to hike the loop and see a forest after a burn, but it might not be everybody's cup of tea. Not sure how long it will take for the forest to regrow from it. The campground has nice picnic areas and camping areas however.

We went hiking with our cubscout pack. The Forrest recently had a controlled burn so we didn't get to see much wildlife. Nice to get out and enjoy being together. Tip: Bring lots of water and a snack for the trip.
