Early wild flowers down by the lake, good temperature for the walk.

Great loop trail. Watch your ankles... lots of rocks around! Hiked today with my Wife and Son and his girlfriend. Other than a few small muddy spots, trail is in great shape this season!

This is a fantastic loop trail. You can get off the trail past the house to go see beautiful cliffs, and some small water falls, and of course great woodland scenery. Ticks are terrible this year. No exaggeration, between myself and the person I was with I removed close to 20 maybe more

One of my favorite trails at Salt Fork. Little muddy today, but that’s to be expected.

HikingGreat!

While the stone house itself I would rate a four or five, I don't believe the trail is necessary. From Google Maps looks like you could just drive to the stone house. Maybe during early autumn, spring or summer the trail is pretty, but now, mid-November with the autumn leaves all fallen and the trees bare and brown or grey, while a relatively easy hike, I probably would have preferred just to drive to the stone house. The stone house itself looks like a building one would see in Williamsburg or some other historical area in the northeast. There are photos on the outside of the building of the state it was in before the restoration; very interesting to see how much work and love was put into the restoration. Like I said above, though I gave the trail a three, i would highly recommend visiting the stone house.

Gorgeous day for a hike to the Stone House! Check out my YouTube page “Skull and Roses Yoga” for a short video filmed on location at Kennedy Stone House and more local trails!

We enjoyed the hike. We were there in early October and the leaves were beginning to change. It was a easy hike along the lake and I hadn't done much homework on this hike so the house at the end was a surprise. I guess Stone House Trail should have clued me in, but things aren't always what they say. On the way out, we took the lake route out, there were some interesting rock formations along the way.

It was pretty dry today, not much rain lately. Trail well marked, well maintained. Took my 10 yo and she was good with it. Neat to have a house at the midpoint to stop and check out! Great water views and access! Took about 1 hour.

Nice trail, well marked. The stone house is an added bonus. Took a 5 yr old with us and he only fell one time. He completed the entire loop with no problem.

This was a great trail if you want easy don't go in on the blue trail. It has some steeper hills. The stonehouse was closed but very cool. You can also drive to see it.

Decent trail with some interesting boulders. Great for kids though there is a lot of poison ivy along the trail so wash off shortly after completing.

If you’re into extremely short and easy day hikes, go for it. The stone house is cool to see. There are a couple of decent lake views. I’d say it’s worth the 45 minutes. Me personally, I’d rather be much further from the road and the dozens of people fishing along the way, but that’s my personal preference.

Overall good trail. Not sure I’d consider this moderate though. I thought it was pretty easy.

We enjoyed this hike yesterday. We’re glad we took the lake side part of the loop first because the woods side was very steep right off the bat. Dog friendly. There was a tree down on the trail by the lake but it was easy to get around. The stone house was lovely even though it was closed. We visited the veterans memorial out back and had our lunch at the little pavilion with picnic tables. Very nice hike. The trail is also available from the water as there is a dock.
