Enjoyable trail for biking. We needed to get out of beach wind and this was the ticket. My wife navigated just fine and she's slightly better than a beginner. Unfortunately, our ride ended in disappointing fashion as our car had been broken into while we were on the trail. Hard lesson to jog the brain - don't have anything of value in your vehicle.

Very pretty, looks like a scene from Tolkien’s Middle Earth.

It is an easy trail.

I’d actually rate this as “easy” considering we backpacked it as a family when our kids were 6, 8 and 10. (I added photos):) It’s a great trail and if you are wanting a short easy backpacking loop, there are great camp spots near the lake! :)

Beautiful trail. Rated as hard but I found it to be moderate at best.

Excellent trail, would not describe this as Hard, Moderate perhaps. Trail is very well maintained, many very large moss covered trees, totally beautiful.

I only went to the south camp on a solo 2 day trip but it was still lots of fun! Highly recommend to people who like a quick easy trip with a nice lake.

It's a great trail and not as difficult as the signs would have you believe. It does have some decent elevation changes though. We enjoyed the semi-private access to the lake at the end.

Awesome hike. It's not hard as I thought it would be. Very easy hike but it does get your heart pumping. My 65yr old no hiking experience mom loved it.

Perfect distance for a one night backpacking trip with our 3 year old. Lots of mosquitoes though.

Great wooded trail back to a beautiful lake. Would definitely not rate this trail as hard though. It was an easy hike/run.

The hike was a challenge when we went through the trail to our camp site with our stuff because there's a lot of steep hills. However, this camp spot was really secluded and beautiful and we stayed there for 2 nights. Go swimming at the end of the trail, it feels so refreshing. If you want a beautiful secluded camp spot and you don't mind carrying stuff on your hike, this is the way to go. :)

Nice trail over all. A few unexpected roots on tight corners, but was having so much fun, I rode it twice!

this trail was awesome. hit it with the mountain bike. it is a pretty technical trail. kind of slow but the views makeup for how rough it was.

A very reasonable hike in for a night away. The mosquitoes were plentiful in late May, and we wish we would have brought a fishing rod because the bass fishing looked good. Completely enjoyable forest and lake views.

My first real forest hike. I was in total awe. Beautiful trees and my guide was an old friend retired from the forest service. I learned so much on this easy trail.
