Big rocks. Old sugar shack remains. Trail is narrow in places. Lots of terrain changes and views. Last bit of the loop is on the road to get back to the parking lot.

Great, well maintained trails!

It was wonderful. Loved the view at the bench on top of the hill it was so amazing. I love hiking to see views like that. Other then that me and my friend ran into a Porcupine. Been on the lookout for wild animals since.

Lovely trail but please remember that dogs are to be kept on leash!! Not sure why some people feel above this rule for these trails? It’s safer for your dog, my family to include my dogs, the wildlife and ecosystem in general.

I hiked this yesterday- a very good trail! From the parking lot I headed north and the trail starts on the right hand side of the road after a few minutes' walk. This is part of the Grand Lake Reserve trail system. Everything was well marked. The trail markers were just far enough apart to make me pay attention, without feeling like someone was holding my hand the whole way. There are lots of very cool rock formations and the lake overlook was very peaceful. It took me about an hour to complete. The trails markers are yellow, going clockwise from the parking lot, then change to black to get back to a different parking lot. Walk up the road 0.5 miles to get back to the original parking lot. You can also take a slight detour following the white markers which will catch back up to the black markers. I didn't do this however. The trail initially was overgrown but not impassable. I wore pants, boots, and long sleeves. Most of the trail is a narrow, single file trail. All low lying areas were dried up yesterday, no mud.

Proper footwear is a definite for this trail. Very rocky in sections. Some spots are slightly over grown but not impassable. Trails are well marked although in a few spots on the yellow trail we had to stop for a minute to find the trail markers again. Super peaceful sitting by the lake.

There are several good viewing points on high terrain. I really like how the trail isn't laden with thick brush and you can easily identify markers to keep you on the path.

A great set of trails!Well planned with beautiful overlooks.Very few wet spots even after heavy rains. I have been across it a couple times this spring.Will provide a good workout.Quiet and pristine.Black fly season but still worth the time.

This trail is fantastic in the height of summer and colors of fall. The terrain and flora are extremely diverse, from a stand of shagbark hickory, to little gorge-like valleys, to rocky overlooks, to hilltop maple strolls with cast iron-strewn ruins. The length of the trail is perfect for a morning or afternoon walk. Some of the trail gets waterlogged, so footwear with that in mind is probably a good idea.
