HikingGreat!

A decent hike but nothing too special. If you do the loop counter clockwise be sure not to stay on the Batona Trail as the trail back to the road and parking lot is not indicated. At one point there is a right angled turn onto Martha Road. Stay on Martha Road for about 0.2 miles and the trail back veers to the left and south. Leave Batona there. About 2 hours.

Cold but sunny day with picturesque views of partially frozen lakes. Very pleasant while walking but chilly when stopped.

HikingNo shade

The start was nice but the end is a public road. I prefer to stay in the woods.

This was a good trail, I enjoyed the different bridges and the scene of the lake along the way. The trail was sandy in some parts and also on part of the road which I didn’t love. Trail was nicely marked and had no trouble staying on the path.

Mostly nice. Good surface for running. End was a little nerve racking as it was right on the main road.

This one was “meh”. I started going east, and the first half had some nice views. The second half was a slog: Old Batona trail is rutted, loose-sand road with some mudholes, which is not fun to walk on, and the last 0.5 mile or so is really close to the road, and at some points you have to walk on the shoulder. Was not relaxing for me or the dog.
