Description
Waypoints (0)

Trail 1 begins at the rear of the lodge and joins Trail 2 for a short distance before dropping alongside a creek. There, a now infrequently-used covered stone fireplace may be seen (one of the many in the park built by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930s). The trail then splits to form a returning loop, its farthest point passing near the park road leading back to the lodge. During the hike, look for creeks that flow intermittently, large beech trees, pawpaw trees, ferns, pileated woodpeckers and chipmunks. During the hike you'll experience 3 significant uphill climbs, 68 steps down and 68 steps back up. The trailhead is near Trail 2&3 as well. Takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Trail 1 is a nice moderate trail down through some beautiful scenery. Nothing super steep, but has some elevation change. Nice little trail for bringing someone new along to get them into hiking.

Easy trail with not many views. Many better trails in Brown County.

Nicely wooded. Good for a short walk. Only two downfalls: super muddy if after a rain and close to some cabins and other buildings.

Easy, short trail. Good for children. Climbing up the stairs at the end was the hardest part. There is a nice stream in the valley.

Great simple trail. 5 year old completed with no issues. Very well marked so a good opportunity to teach about trail markers
