My wife and I are fairly experienced hikers and we both agreed this trail should be rated hard for the ascents alone. It's a real workout, but a lot of fun! Incredible views! Nice bench at the loop! Will definitely return!

Great trail! Good mix of elevation to keep you interested. Started at the lake and did the extension and loop and back. Took just over 3 hours.

Started at Ogle lake, looped and finished back at the lake. Rugged feel to the trail, saw probably a dozen other hiking groups on the ~ 3 hours on the trail. There isn't much to see on this trail in the summer, it's almost completely under the canopy. Good workout though.

took this trail as a night hike and followed it up to the west overlook of trail 8. looped trail 8 and met back up with 9 at the lake then finished with the 1.7 extension. all in all about 13 miles. a little under 4 hrs moving time.

This trail was a challenge for a beginner hiker. The elevation changed were rough for someone out of shape. Be prepared to get feet wet as there are some Creek crossings as well as muddy places in the trails. It however is very nice as I went in the middle of the week and saw very few people. Plus being immersed in nature for 3+ hours and never heard a car or a plane was nice.

Definitely more difficult than the beginning trail #8 we used to connect to trail #9, but it was very enjoyable on a rare 60 degree day in January! Definitely be ready for some
Muddy sections, but nothing too extreme on the day we went.

From Ogle Lake hiked to loop, around loop and back to lake. About 7.5 miles. Less traffic than other BC trails and has a slightly more rugged feel. Has several long moderate climbs so a decent workout if that is what you are looking for in your hikes.

I typically find Brown County State Park too crowded for my taste, but trail 9 is nicely tucked away in a corner of the park that seems to only invite the more serious and respectful hikers. It was quiet, with some nice elevation changes, stream crossings, and great views of the lake.

Loop extension ( additional 2.1 miles) not included on park map trail miles. Total miles 7.5 with extension and loop. View of lake from ridge is awesome!
