HikingGreat!Over grown

Started trail by boat rental and traveled clockwise which was fun rolling gravel path. Once past swimming hole then trail seemed less maintained and a bit vague where to go. The entry I found had plenty of poison Ivy. I was not prepared for such a trail . I enjoyed a short trek into this side of lake and soon turned around and went back counter clockwise. Will come back in the fall wearing pants and hiking boats verses tennis shoes to bush-wack the full way around.

We really enjoyed this trail. My wife and I hiked it today. It was in great shape. Awesome views of the lake. Mostly shaded. No mud. Surprised by the hundreds of people in and around the spillway/swimming area. Counted 3 masks. I guess the virus doesn’t exist in Hinckley.

Nice easy yet scenic trail with some nice views of the lake and backwater areas. Not too crowded for a Saturday afternoon in June. Although it rained yesterday and a bit this morning there was very little mud on the trail but it did wake up the bugs. Easy trail, kid friendly.

Pretty nice considering the amount of rain we had last night. Muddy, but not too bad. Pretty simple, easy hike.

Easy and scenic trail. I enjoyed the lake views, swimming area and herons! I will be back to explore more areas of Hinckley.

this is an easy trail with few obstacles though not quite so easy that I'd recommend it for stroller use. The trail has some nice overlooks and gives a little taste of what songs of the other areas of the park have to offer, passing by the boat house, swimming area, all purpose trail and picnic areas. It only took me about an hour to hike the trail.

This is one of my favorites. I would rate it as moderate with a little incline here and there, some rocks and tree roots to watch out for. I like it that way. Took my two small dogs and they loved it. Great views of the lake, cranes, ducks, lilly pads, forestry etc.

Easy, mostly flat, mostly dirt and gravel loop although parts are paved. Some soft spots and mud patches but those were easily avoided. Trail is mostly shaded.

A bit muddy, but small enough to make it fun! The only trail I have come across in CLE that is clearly marked. I will be coming here much more often, my new favorite trail!
