Stopped here because I happened to be in the area and wanted to kill some time. I think it’s an alright trail for that situation or if you’re local. Not too many people there, just people fishing.

Nice trail but not very well marked. Got off trail on occasion but was able to get back on relatively easily. Doing the left turn u turn around the bottom of the lake was also not well marked and the trail was not easy to find. But good hike overall and the dog and kids liked it.

There is hardly a trail here. Many downed trees, not marked well. I do not recommend this one.

Overall I would say this is a very easy trail however be aware of tons of bugs. I left covered in millions of mosquito bites so make sure to lather yourself in deet. the trail was also very rocky and some parts were a bit muddy. there are no markers and several sections where there are partitions so you wont know which way to go but thankfully a nice young woman who was also on the trail helped to guide me in the right direction to the falls.

The red trail was flooded so we followed one of the atv trains parallel to the red trail. We made it to the waterfall, which is a series of small waterfalls that cascade down a hill, nothing spectacular. The lake is beautiful though. We hung out for a while but the bugs too much so we gave up. Easy walk. Bring bugspray.

Very muddy and buggy. However our hike w the dog was enjoyable. The was no service so we used our natural nav skills because the trail was not clearly marked. Waterfall is really cool.

Nice trail. Not the best not the worst. The scenery is nice, but the trail needs some serious TLC. If you’re going to walk the trail definitely make use of the app’s GPS.

Lots of little trails in here and nice spots to hang out around the lake.

Nice hikes, just wish they would mark them! You have to go after a heavy rainfall!

Nice easy walk for the kids and dog. Bring fishing poles. Lots of frogs.

Easy but really confusing as trails weren't marked OR you had to walk in a little before you could find the marks. Lake and waterfall were pretty. Since it's close I guess I'd walk it again but there are nicer trails.
