Very muddy, once we got past the first 3 miles it was clear. First time doing the whole loop. It was marked well until we got to the damn, then got a little confusing on which way to follow the blue trail.

Love this loop! Extremely muddy. Take poles or find a walking stick to help you balance on the rock jumping or tree limb walking across the muddy sections. Still worth it!! It’s a favorite of mine!!

Ditto from previous review. Started at boat mooring 1—mud, mud and more mud. After 1.8 miles I had had enough mud. Joined a park road for the hike back but rejoined the path. Font know if this part will ever dry out. Wait till August of later.

Great, tough, but not impossible, trail. Very muddy in places and you definitely need to dress appropriately or walk it after a good dry spell. Facilities pop up every so often but it's mostly pretty isolated and some great scenery. Other than the mud the trail is pretty defined and stable.

Shaded well with many places to stop, enjoy the lake and fish or just rest!
