We hiked here (with our 5 y/o & 2 y/o) for the first time on Christmas Day. We ended up staying for over 4 hours I think. We hiked the Blue Wing trail for the most part until we hiked off the path to head towards the lake. Though there was next to no water in many places it was just beautiful, other worldly! We came upon a sweet gum tree that had fallen over and broken another tree in half. We found so many different kinds of moss, lichen, and many beautiful mushrooms we'd never seen in person. There were also toads everywhere. It was quite an adventure. We can't wait to go back!

Just rode this one lady weekend (5 may 2012) there are several trees across the last section of trail that you have to carry your bike over or around through the woods. All in all though a fun escape into the woods and not bad for the 1 dollar park entry fee.
