The trail along the cliffs is closed but passable. DO NOT TRY TO COMPLETE THE WHOLE LOOP coming over farm road or whatever it’s called. When they say tornado damage, they don’t mean a few trees to scramble over, the entire area looks post-apocalyptic. The trail is fully obliterated, you can’t even find it.

This was a wonderful hike. Not too steep, in the shade for almost the entire time. Beautiful walk along the creek. Trail is very well marked except for one of the final turns looping back onto the final straight leg of the trail. Saw lots of frogs and some happy horses on a beautiful day!

Someone should probably mention this trail is closed right now. Especially since there’s a $3/person fee to get into the grounds.

Storm damage knocked some trees down near the end of the trail and it would be difficult for most to pass. Otherwise, nice trail with good mix of incline/decline for a short jaunt.

Went on this today and did the White Banks Trail which was almost 7 miles total. It was really very beautiful, there was lots of winding sections and the whole thing was in the shade. Make sure you have tick repellent with you as they are out already. Even with tick repellent I did get one on me, so check yourself. Overall it was very beautiful and I would recommend it. If it is a warm enough day then you can hit the swimming area when your done for a good place to cool off.

Very nice and easy trail that we hiked after touring the lighthouse and lighthouse trail. You get a chance to get close to the water and enjoy the scenery around you. The majority is shaded which was nice during the summer time.
