Hiked this trail twice, both times from the swimming area. First time to the point to photograph sunset. Beautiful & awe-inspiring. However it was dark about halfway back. it's easy to miss the bluff side of the trail in low light & you definitely don't want to try the lakeside trail as it would be easy to get lost in the dark. Realized I was on lakeside trail before going Into the Woods & cut across savanna to bluff side trail. easy hike, tree roots and rocky in some areas. Lakeside is a quiet, peaceful walk that takes you past marina & back to campground.

Trail provides a nice overview of the park as it winds mainly through the woods along the lake, but also passes by a swimming beach and picnic areas. My favorite part is the view from Indian Point. Trees were stunning in autumn.

It wasn't the greatest time of year to hike this trail as it looked as if they did a control burn not long ago. However, with that being sad, it was a nice hike with great views of the lake almost the entire trail. I'm sure this trail would be gorgeous once the new growth of Spring comes in. Be sure to wear hiking shoes though, because this trail is really rocky and has some rugged terrain.

A nice, little trail that's good for killing a couple of hours. The trail length is actually 2.75mi, but the paths are worn & blazed well. We walked it on Feb 18th (while it was 72°) and they had recently done a controlled burn around most of the trail, so there was a lot of scorched earth & downed limbs to look at. I'm sure it'll be beautiful when the new growth comes up.
