Nice trail with some rewarding landmarks at the top of the trail. I liked that there were some options of things to see at the top to make you feel rewarded for the work to get there. Pretty wide path into the mid section of the trail. Elevation is gradual with only light places of steep sections. Overall a nice trail.

Took Rocky trail from Dogwood campsite loop, Short trail to loop back on Lakeside trail. Short and beautiful with more fungi varieties than I've ever seen.

Took the lakeside loop trail and it was beautiful and easy. We hiked for almost 9 miles all the way around.

Parts of the trail are very nice, but there are several areas where you "walk through" civilization - people sunning on a beach, picnickers at the casino, shelter areas where parties are happening. Pretty awkward.

Great workout as it's a steady incline all the way to the top. I enjoyed the rocky terrain and beautiful view at the top.

Early morning is a good time to go. Trails are clear and easy. Good elevation change.

It was great! A mix of incline and easy gradual trail. The view at the Dixon line is unique and so enjoyable.
