Trail is littered with trash. Downed trees and washed out portions.

Christmas 2016. Wet and chilly. Good views through the woods and some overlooking KY lake. Forgot to hang my pack at twin lakes and woke up to a skunk INSIDE it (stole my jerky). Definitely a workout, plenty of things to see.

Great trail but shared it with a lot of bikes today. Good workout with some good hills. Started at the North welcome center and did the blue/yellow loop back to the Welcome Center. Did about 8 miles and loved how parts of the trail followed the lake.
