I am a 1995 graduate of Morehead State University and while I had visited the lake as a student, I never realized the trail system was there. It was great to visit campus and to enjoy nature! It’s a hidden gem and should be marketed more to students!

Trail was much more difficult than I expected. We had an 11 year old and a three year old. It wasn’t safe for small children as the trail is not well maintained.

I’ve hiked this trail a few times over the years. It’s a great 45 minute hike just to keep your hiking legs in shape during the off-season or trainer for an upcoming trip. I’ve always noticed trail work is needed pretty bad on the back portion heading back towards Morehead State University. The trail and lake views are great. I’ve decided to hike this one more often.

If you take the trail just around the lake, it is very pretty but not a well-maintained trail. You will get a climbing workout going over and under downed trees. But’s it’s a nice little hike if you are in the area. I agree with another hiker that there is better hiking nearby at Carter Caves and Daniel Boone National Forest.

I use to hike this trail all the time when I lived in Morehead and went to Morehead State. the trail is marked but the back end gets swampy when it rains and you usually have downed trees every so often but its an easy trail. I only recommend it if your already there and dont want to drive to an area with better trails. Carter Caves and Clear Creek Recreation area in bath county have some good trails that offer more.

Downed trees on path but a great trail run and beautiful view of lake.

Convenient and simple little mile loop to get away from the noise.

Saw a myriad of mushrooms, a beaver, some geese and nearly stepped on a copperhead on the SE side of the lake, but I did get bitten by a dozen or so ticks. I hope to go back and incorporate some of the Sheltowee trail next time.

Nothing special, but a good little hike right on campus.
