Nice, easy walk through a beautiful forested area. Overlook is enjoyable. Fair amount of icy spots right now, so take care.

Great!Snow

The trail is in good condition at the moment- the snow on the trail is packed and a bit slippery but great for the most part. I ran into a few people and 3 dogs on a Wednesday afternoon so I imagine its popular on the weekend. I'd definitely recommend it!

HikingGreat!

Pretty & peaceful easy loop trail in the forest. The creek overlook is lovely! Only saw 4 other people and 1 dog on a Thursday afternoon. Bathroom at trailhead is a nice bonus.

HikingGreat!

Easy trail. Partially shaded. Took a side jaunt over to Smith Lake and this trail was closed part way due to downed trees. Narrow path. And difficult to keep 6 ft distancing. Beautiful overlooks.

Great trail. We sidetracked out to Smith Lake which was more of a challenge. Nice stroll

A nice little trail for everyone. Good way to kill an hour or so. Getting up there was a bit scary though. The road was quite narrow and bumpy.

Very easy hike. Little to no incline. A nice loop through the forest with great views of the lake. Barely any mosquitos today but we did get hailed on a bit. There are other extending trails shooting off if you wanted a longer hike.

Trail was basic without a lot of features. The east side of the loop had a lot of trees across it! For sure a medium difficulty with the trees

Excellent, easy hiking path surrounded by tall trees and lush surroundings. Definitely check out Swift Creek overlook path and rest a moment on the wooden bench to take in the peaceful sounds of the creek below. Had a larger black bear blocking us for a bit on the trail close to the trailhead.

This was a great trail for us to get out with the kids. We went at the end of April and trail was dry and clean. Awesome.

It was thawing snow and icy conditions. But great for the small kids. My 4 years old did it. Great views of the creek.

A picture perfect nature walk. Don’t miss the lookout over the creek! It was bug-free in August.
