Uneventful trail. Couple small hills. Good views but not challenging. Had to do the detour because of construction.

We started in the lower parking lot and took Trail 3 up to the lodge and then Trail 2 clockwise then connecting to North Tower trail loop and back. About 8 miles. So great to get out of the house. Normally wouldn't take NT because it is mostly mountain bikes but none yesterday wet, cold and NY Eve.

HikingGreat!

The trail was beautiful mid October with fall colors in the trees. It was a brisk hike with elevation change in a few spots that gets your heart rate going. The trail wasn’t overly crowded on an early Saturday morning. I would definitely come back.

I hiked This trail on August 15, 2020 and majority of it was closed due to downed trees hopefully they get it fixed soon. I’m sure it’s nice once they get it cleared out

nice, moderate trail. feels longer to me than it really is. trail 2 is closed at bottom by lower shelter. have to take 3 by stables back up. good trail but gave it 4 stars due to it being so close to horse trail(pretty stinky during the summer)

More narrow in places than expected. Well maintained and with a few blowdowns. The staircase is down but detour is clear.

This trail was really beautiful in the shade! It was great for being able to chat with friends. The river had a nice log that we were able to sit at and put our feet over. At one point trail two was closed and we had to transition to trail three. However, it was well marked and we knew where to go.

Really enjoyable trail but the end is blocked off and drops you onto Trail 3. I had to get a ride back in a DNR truck to the Abe Martin House. Otherwise, good difficulty and enjoyable trail.

The long stretch of stairs is currently closed, so there's a detour towards the stables and brings you up trail 3 to return to the lodge. otherwise, the trail is clear and you can manage your way around most of the mud.

There is a detour due to some stairs that collapsed. To detour around from the lodge take trail 3. Go down the hill past the amphitheater and follow the trail to the parking lot for the horse track. At that point you will see metal signposts pointing to the left for trail 2 while trail 3 goes right.

Watch out this trail is under construction so hard to complete the loop right now. Don’t know how but my garmin GPS recorded 2.8 miles not as advertised, other than that awesome views.
