could be a really neat trail but hilljacks on horses have brutalized it.

I agree with other hikers that this is definitely a horse trail. Very difficult to walk on the path due to hoof imprints in the ground. There was a nice small strip above the lake, however, where horseback riders aren’t allowed. We didn’t go down all of the way due to storms, so I’m not sure how the rest of it looks, though. Probably won’t go back, but it was a quick getaway hike within short driving distance.

More of a horse trail than human trail.

The trail becomes overgrown with brush and high grass a few hundred yards into the hike

Lake gives for nice scenery. Choppy trail from horses. Has some bite to it though.

would be good if horse riders wouldn't tear them up

Easy, trail runs into the lake. It had been raining so the water was brown and wasn't the best view... It's a nice outing but not my favorite... Horses traffic really impacts the trail.

Way to much horse traffic. Trails are in very poor condition. First time and last time.

Not a bad trail, should have run a track to add, but will do next time.....early fall very comfortable with no one on the trail,not even the usual horses. Did little beech loop. Possum ridge and then wildwood and by lake.

The forest and lake views are great with many choices within the trail system. Having said this, the litter is horrible and trail conditions due to horseback riders awful. Please pick up as much garbage as possible. It will make this state park a much nicer place to visit.
