Love how quiet the forest gets as you hike into it. Beautiful area, even without highlights like great views, lakes, waterfalls, etc. Alltrails says this trail is 4.4 miles but I keep finishing at about 3.8, ymmv.

Fun trail on yellow to red with a small rock scramble, but the pup came home with lots of ticks.

This was a pretty tough trail. It also says 4.4 miles here but we did a total of 5 miles. This was great for the dogs but if you do bring your dog beware of ticks. We found them mostly in the grass area where you park and apparently ended bringing 20 home with the dog. So after hiking for 3 hours we ended having to shave her down (because she’s got long hair) and we shampoo’d her 3 times with flea and tick shampoo and we combed her 6 times with a lice comb and that whole process took 4 hours. So if you think about bringing your dog just be careful. Aside from that our family enjoyed the hike despite the exhaustion. It helped that there was a lot of shade in the trees but there were muddy areas too so don’t wear white shoes or your favorite running shoes.

A bit muddy in places, a good amount of people (everyone is looking for a way to get out of the house). One adult and 2 kids (9 & 10) so we stopped early for a small lunch and then hiked the rest. It was on the easy side of moderate, nothing too steep or long climbs. The police were enforcing closures at the parking area, and we got lucky that he opened it up as we were pulling up. The Turkey Mountain side of the road was significantly less crowded than the Pyramid Mountain side
