hiked the first 5 miles and hammock camped at Oak Ridge. the trail is very well marked and kept up. it's pretty challenging, especially for a 50 year old with 25 lbs of gear on my back. the next day was 3 miles back to the car. the trail between the dam and nature center has some very steep inclines. maybe the only thing making this not a 5 star hike is that the trail doesn't go near the rock formations, and rarely has a view of the river.

For being a Metropark this is a nice trail it's marked very well, there was a lot of muddy areas but we have had a lot of rain in the last week. There are some decent hills to climb but nothing to bad at all. The only thing that was a negative was the road noise, it never really seemed like I was deep in the woods.

If you're looking for a day hike, then this is the one!! This trail has camping sites, but the downfall here is that it is stove cooking only and no open fires.
