Shades State Park Trail 4

This is a beautiful fun trail. You can make it moderate to rugged or easy depending on which turn you take. This is clearly marked on the trail maps provided at the entrance to the campground. The rugged section contains ladders and ascends a ravine.

None gorge section is easy-moderate. Gorge section is not difficult but very rugged. Went with my 11 year old daughter without much trouble. We descended the gorge but plan on ascending the gorge the next time around to make it more challenging. Watch your footing while hiking. Many loose rocks and logs. Only hike with 10+ year old child with them following your lead. Overall would rate moderate trail with rugged sections. Definitely worth it and would recommend if you are even out of shape like myself.
