Very nice trail. But if it has better view, it would be a 5 star.

not sure why this trail was so well rated. The "waterfall" was nowhere to be found, and the trail was overgrown with grass so badly that we had to do tick checks every 10 minutes.

Also worth mentioning is the overflow on the main path in and out. I didn't plan to walk through water on my hike, and definitely didn't appreciate the wet socks...

We took Appalachian Trail from 301, heading North, moderate hiking up hills and rocks. At approx 2 miles, we turned right onto Blue Trail , down rocky hill to beach and concession stand. Great workout for a day hike. Chose to return to car via 301 as we were pressed for time.
