Very diverse trail with a mix of incline, decline and flat ground. Little buggy over the summer but enjoyed the hike. Saw a bear when walking back to the car on the gravel path which was a little startling.

Quite, but overgrown trail in some areas. Don’t forget your bug spray.

This trail was somewhat difficult, but also fun. I brought my 3 dogs so that made it interesting. Definitely very scenic and in the woods. I’d definitely recommend bringing a lot of water with you but it was fun! And not very busy.

3.49 stars. This trail is absolutely great for an afternoon brain-drain. I would really recommend it for experienced hikers who know the signs to watch for to maintain the trail. This app sure helped. Markings are few to none. I can’t decide which direction is better to begin. I took the steep beginning to the left and ended by the water but I actually think I would have enjoyed the alternate more. Once you reach the dam, it feels like you’re done and it was too short. If you go the other direction, it will provide much better time to shut off your brain and disconnect. Good trail but not the best.

Had been wanting to do the full loop since we discovered the trail. Started at the spot at the top of the damn. The first part of the trail was an access road and not too exciting or difficulty. Once you turn off the trail becomes very anticlimactic. Felt like we were walking through someone’s back field. Once we hit the hard turn (which I think was another starting point for the trail), the trail it became beautiful. The mountain laurels were blooming, there was a ton of moss. Felt like you were walking through a fairly tale. It was marked “most difficult” but was all down hill at that point. Very rocky which added to the experience. Loved this part of the trail. Looked like a lot of people use as a horse trail, had to maneuver over many piles of horse manure which just added to the fly population.

Very flat trail along the lake and across the dam. Shaded and very well marked trail. It is a steep hill to get to the bottom of the dam but there is a cool waterfall to sit by at the bottom. Signs say no wading, but several people were in knee deep. No issues.

Great trail for hiking a good distance. My GPS stopped along the way so it wasn’t the full distance. My Apple Watch kept tabs though.

Loved the hike! Definitely go counter clockwise so that you finish by the beautiful lake! The trail was not well marked at the beginning so using this app was a lifesaver.

So we followed this trail exactly as it was mapped. We never saw the waterfall that is pictured as the feature photo here in the app. If you are going with the expectation to see a waterfall you will be very disappointed. A nice trail with a little elevation gain. Lots of rocks to walk on and trees to see. A view of the lake at the very beginning and then all woods. Quite a bit unshaded as the leaves on the trees weren’t in yet. A very quiet hike with no wildlife at all. Maybe because of the shooting range nearby.

I would not recomend this trail if you are not physically inclined. lots of steep hills and lots of blown over trees. other than that it was a decent hike.

Meandering trail which in places can make a compass dizzy. It was cloudy yesterday morning - my wife likes to get on trail and hike - perfect trail for her. Some parts of trail double wide while twisting parts tight single file. We took the advice of previous reviews & hiked clockwise. This made for a comfortable gentle slope hike. (Other then up waterfall). Also nice to end at waterfall and pines along reservoir. Had a thrill as we saw a female Woodcock - probably migrating through.

Good trail overall. Lots of gypsy moth killed timber on top of the ridge. Some sections with lots of lichens on everything which was interesting.

Love this trail...The waterfall is beautiful your sure to see it after a nice rainfall. Beautiful scenery and a great workout especially if your walking up the hill by the waterfall.

Very pretty hike. Suggest going left first to get the uphill portion out of the way so you can just descend. Notice, the rock formation in the picture is not on the trail. You must go down a big hill by the damn of the water side.

Loved this trail. For some reason my recording didn’t attach to the trail. If you want more of a workout, take this trail clockwise. Incline on the first half is steeper and rocky but you can keep a good pace on it. Decline on the backside is minimal. The first half of the trail has the best scenery especially along the reservoir. After you cross the ridge you decline on a wider trail and a portion of a gravel road.
