Took this trail in the rain during the fall. Some rocky trails to start but gets better. The first half of the trail/ loop around the lake had no look out points however the second half had several. Was a nice walk /hike through the woods took about 2 hours.

Hiked the trail today, was nice easy hike. Falls were very nice. However it’s not a loop trail anymore, after the falls at the east end of the lake I continued NW on the trail to circle back around and ran into an impassable swamp, trail vanished. Had to backtrack the way I came. Lots of animal scat on the trail too, watch your step :)

Nice easy hike. Waterfalls is very nice. Only a few muddy spots but no rain lately. The lake is beautiful and peaceful.

Nice hike. Waterfall at end of the lake was roaring. Nice tree colors and some mud but easy to get around.

The trail is an easy hike overall with only a few sections that have more gradual incline. Trail was well marked. The majority of the path was dry but did run into some muddy areas, which is to be expected, after a week with some rain. The mud was mostly able to be avoided by walking to the side. The waterfall was easy to find on the 2nd visit however the 1st visit to this trail a few years ago I actually managed to miss the waterfall probably due to a drier season and did not hear the obvious running of the waterfall that year. Also discovered an outhouse near the bigger opening on the hike that set back a ways which may be helpful for those that desire a bit more privacy.

I hiked the trail counter clockwise to see the falls first and the old camp site last. A nice trail, but very buggy. (When is a trail ever not buggy after rain in Aug?) Some repairs taking place after the falls and I had to follow the ribbon markers for a while.
If i were to go again, I'd reverse direction and stay a while at the lake. 3 hrs to complete.

lots of mud made it tougher after the big rain which brought out the black flies. other than that the views were great!

Was a great trail, beautiful scenery and loved the waterfall.
Trail was very muddy, a lot of spot we have to balance on logs placed by previous hikers.
At mile 2 trail is diverted with no warning... trudged through the woods, they do have it marked some are very hard to see.

The waterfall was beautiful. Trail was wet in areas but not bad. Great views of the lake on the north side of the lake. An easy hike.

Easy hike, a lot of wet spots this time of year. Found some great spots to go camping in the future! Will be back again.

A group of us hiked this a few years ago while geocaching. We found 2 of the 3 caches. Thanks to the mud, we were forced to walk WAY off the trail, missing the 3rd. It was a beautiful day and all of us enjoyed the hike. We went all the way around the lake.

We laughed as we read at trail head how everyone was getting lost....but several hours the dark we had to agree. The trail is not well marked. The falls were beautiful and the trail was great until we no longer found markers! We will go back again and try to find the real route out!

I have done this trail once, and never will again. We followed trail makers on a wild goose chase and ended up trudging through knee-deep mud. The falls were not pretty either. Not recommended.
