Fun trail, but some sections very very muddy. Very pretty along lake. Stone house at end of trail was beautiful. Check for ticks when done.

Great short little hike. Pretty easy conditions but watch out for roots on the trail. There is another trail that continues on after the stone house but not sure where it goes...was told around the lake to the marina.

Great family trail! Little muddy but expected in spring. We walked the lake route on way in and came out the inner loop for different scenery (more hilly). Saw water moccasin coiled up right off the trail. Yikes! Beautiful hike!

Not a bad hike, just short but worth it to see the stone house. I recommend extending your hike across the parking lot (opposite side of this trail head) to the those trails as well around the lake.

Muddy in the warm winter but I’m sure it’s beautiful in the summertime. Lovely trail along the lake—we doubled back to walk along it again instead of doing the loop.

Nice little hike with the Stone house as a reward at the end. Fall color as of today maybe 5%.

We took two dogs hiking on this trail and loved it. The inclines and declines were not bad and we enjoyed all the rocks/boulders. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. I would recommend this trail for anyone that is somewhat in shape.

I love this trail. it was a nice hike, it was a path through the woods, with rocks and tree roots to climb over, up hill and down but not overwhelming.

This is an easy trail. It rained and was muddy and beautiful views of the lake. There is no elevation. Pack a lunch and sit at the dock and enjoy the view.

My dog and I had a great hike. I loved the trail. It wasn’t difficult, but I appreciated some of the elevation changes. I agree that it’s not for all dogs and beginners.

Nice loop trail that goes right next to the water. The stone house at the end was fascinating. The trail wasn't too overgrown either

Pretty views along the lower portion by the water. But a lot of overgrowth on the trail, trying to avoid wild roses most of the time.

Nice trail but definitely a little overgrown. We didn't see a soul on our whole trip. A LOT of ticks. Make sure you wear sleeves and treat with Permethrin. Beautiful lake views.

Definitely a little overgrown, definitely wear pants. Sadly we didn't escape the bugs that stung. 3 of 6 of us got stung a couple of times each. Good trail otherwise though, a could nice views of the lake.

Fairly overgrown path. Wear pants. There is a dock over the water near the house which gives a very pretty secluded view.

Stne House Loop Trail Is a located in Salt Fork State Park. It is an easy to moderate trail with the lower lake side part of the loop being much more level and easy with nice views of the lake. The upper loop is more of a woodland trail with much more elevation change. The trail will take you to The Stone House which is an 1840's era house which has been recently restored. It is now full of period items and staffed on the weekends during the summer season. This trail was listed as one of the 15 best trails in Ohio by Knowyourstate.com. Not sure about that but a good trail.
