There are several spots with great views of the lake. Watch your footing in some parts.

Did this trail last year. Very scenic. Had to Wade through the water to get back due to fallen trees.

Meh. The formations are a neat sight. The trail itself in my opinion is not too exciting. It’s a pretty short hike. There are a few good lookout spots but other than that they are blocked by trees. Some spots are narrow and close to the edge so use caution. The beach/parking lot was crowded.

The bluff trail is open for the first half and they have an orange gate up where you are supposed to stop. its easily passable and takes you right down to the water where you can take a swim and cool off. It was a beautiful hike with the exception of the bugs. There are so many bugs its hard to think about anything else.

It was a picture perfect day to visit. I brought my dog and we hiked up to the Drumlin trail. The views were breath taking....Ive never been here before. The trails we very well kept. I hope to do the Bluff trail if it reopens!

Bluff trail was closed due to erosion and hill slide but still ventured it carefully. Amazing views of the lake and the bluffs, excellent photo opportunities and so extremely peaceful out there! The employees keep the trails so great, very easy to follow the trails and overall a great hike!

The trail is closed if you want to walk along the bluffs, so be mindful of that. Otherwise walk at your hearts content. I arrived rather early, around 8:40 or so, and the entire park was covered in a thick fog. It was quite the sight to see, absolutely beautiful. I hung around on the other side of the trail once out until about 10 or 11, once the fog cleared, i went a second time to experience the view of the lake. While the trail is dangerous since its been washed out, the view was more than worth the risk.

Parts of the trail are a bit narrow and on the edge of a large drop off. Wouldn't recommend for hikers with younger children.

What a beautiful trail! It is so peaceful with the waves lapping the shoreline the entire way. The cliffs are spectacular...the views perfect. The trail was very wet and muddy in sections and I was glad I opted for hiking boots. I will definately return.

Spring hiking is definitely muddy so just be careful. Walking close to the cliff edge was scary (i may just be overreacting!) The lake view and the woods are spectacular. Fulfillment is what you’d feel after traversing the cliff trail but when you look back and see that nothing was supporting the spot where you stood to take pictures/walked earlier, you’d feel terrified!
