Actually 3 miles (after walking a couple minutes there was a mile marker that said 2.9 miles left) took about 1hr 20min. Almost all in the shade. Easy hike (couple small hills, tree roots). There were some wood slats at the very beginning over muddy areas. We walked past the same deer 3 times (because of winding trails), he didn’t get startled by us. Several bikes rode through, so pay attention.

This trail was great for our family- 3 kids, ages 8-11 and a dog. It ended up being 3.0 miles instead of 2.6, and it took our family about an hour and 20 min. The trail is completely shaded. There are some hills and fallen trees but nothing too strenuous. It was not muddy for us, but it has not rained for a few days. It was a very beautiful, enjoyable hike.

Great hike. Made the kids hike it before the beach. Perfect to take the kids on. Just stay aware for bikes. Think it would be a very nice winter trail.

Great dog friendly trail with a few spots to stop and take a quick break. Well shaded but not terribly muddy except at the beginning/end of the trail, most can be navigated around as long as it hasn't been raining heavily recently.

Trail was great today! Not very muddy considering the rain over the last few weeks. Lots of shade, perfect for a quick hike.

Trail was trash today. Went to bike on it and had to turn back about halfway through bc it was pure deep mud and swampland; we had to carry our bikes and bushwhack to get around the super deep muddy parts. Be prepared to carry an extra 10-20 lbs of mud on your bike if you do continue. Avoid until later this summer!

Easy trail with some nice views of the lake! We love that East Fork is a short drive from our house in Mt. Washington. This trail is shared with mountain bikers and is rather muddy towards the end (we started left at the trailhead where there was less mud). It is well marked. There are signs about every half mile and blue marks on multiple trees to direct you.

I totally got lost and have no idea how bc I saw blue the entire way, and the same color blue. I ended up across the park near the military corps section. I have no idea how that could have happened when I literally kept checking the color on the trees. I’m very frustrated.

Can’t wait for it to dry out... starting left on the blue loop is more dry than starting right.

Nice lake views from a higher elevation. The trail is narrow in some spots and we did encounter one down tree, but were able to duck underneath. Another dog friendly trail.

Fun trail. At three miles perfect length for a warm day. Make sure you bring extra shoes. The beginning of the trail, some places throughout the trail, and very much at the end of the trailer muddy but the rest of it’s pretty good. No need to turn back.

Great trail! A little muddy at the beginning and end, but the main section was in great shape and had great views with the leaves off. A little road noise from 125, but not horrible. Found that someone had moved the trail sign near the end to route people on to the wrong trail- relocated to proper location!
