We got lost at one point, but besides that, it’s a nice loop that’s pretty easy to walk on, and the view of the water at the top is pretty cool!

Well I had a detailed description of this Trail quite lengthy but it disappeared so here's the short version today is about 78 degrees really nice weather best we've had for weeks humidity is perfect. 48% UV index is 6 the trail was easy with decomposed Granite combination gravel if you had flotation tires on a wheelchair or equivalent it would be very easy to navigate the Trail if you have little kids or dogs watch out for poison ivy that's about the only danger their are shrubs near the trail and trees and large bushes have been cleared there are large boulders to sit on along the way there are two look out decks that are very nice and you can watch the birds, kayakers, boaters or just plain people watch half dozen or so people came and went people taking photographs and some were fishing..

Trail is short but there is other trails that connect to this one. Very secluded part of the park, I found myself coming here on the weekends when eagle creek was packed out!
