Went hiking with my dog and enjoyed the views. It’s short and sweet but had a lot to look at. The forest is beautiful with the pines towering over you. We also saw some turkey buzzards near the lake doing their mating stance. Even though it’s not a long hike, would recommend this hike for anyone that enjoys nature.

Short trail that gets close to the lake. Rock outcroppings and lots of fauna to see. I spooked a deer by getting within 10 feet of where it was secluded in some brush next to the trail. Also chipmunks that let me get close. I recommend taking the trail clockwise for an easier return to the parking lot. Look for the tepees. Parts of the trail at the beginning were muddy due to wet weather of the past 18 months. And there were some overgrown spots of ground cover and a grove of paw paw trees. The trail, however, is well marked. Yes, you are going to see some poison ivy. You’re in the woods so it should not be a surprise.

The hike is not well maintained as the path is quite tiny. Also, it was covered in poison ivy. The rocks were cool to see on the hike, but didn’t get a great view of the lake.

Believe it’s more secluded than knob trail for being close to it has different scenery
