This is one of my favorites. There is a steep spot with loose footing. There is wood on either side of the trail there to use to bear crawl up. If going down that side, I tend to crab walk/scoot down on my butt as opposed to risk falling halfway through.

Just did this trail today. We chose it because it said it was over 5 miles. When I tracked it on my phone, it said it was 4.7 miles instead. Most of the trail is in the forested area. About halfway through the lake will be on either side of you which is lovely. The trail is not paved and is marked with white diamonds on the trees. Overall, I will be coming back again.

Wife and I did this trail a couple weekends ago. Enjoyed. Seen lots of birds and quite a bit of beaver activity.

Wife and I rocked this trail in 1:45 with some stops for pics and such. It's in great fall shape and the colors are remarkable.

Great hike! Good for a family day hike. Trail is well maintained and marked. The beach at the dam makes a great stop for a break an snack, you can even swim there if you're not afraid of the muddy water.
