If you like ticks and a rocky path, this the trail for you. I understand the few other reviews that say this is unmarked... the trail was widely cleared and easy to follow on the southern portion. So if you consider this an in and out trail instead of a loop, you can have a good time..
When you arrive, take the path to the left and it is mostly flat. When you come to sign for the shortcut, take it to the right. You’ll end up at the lake with a nice view. We turned back from there, as the path got grassy and we found five ticks after just a few yards.
We originally made the mistake of tying to follow the loop marked on this all trails map, but ended up walking through some tall grasses and muddy conditions. Found about 20 ticks each and decided to turn back. Can’t vouch for conditions on what is marked to be the north part of the “loop”, but I included a photo of what appears to be the steep hike back up the hill through the power lines.
Was hoping for rhododendrons as it is there first week of June, but the plants look more like laurel.

Saw 4 people total on this trail on a Sunday afternoon. Felt very remote. No markers. The app was very useful although the online map was not always very precise. We loved the part towards the end with the huge rhododendrons. It must be gorgeous when they are in bloom. I would recommend to do the loop in the other direction because of the very steep incline at the end.

Although tricky at times, this was an easy, very scenic hike. Beware, very few markers to track the trail, but it added to the adventure. Definitely will go again in Spring.

I will never attempt this hike again. There are no markers or signs, and it was very difficult to follow the online map, as it was not always accurate and it often led us into deep forest with no visible trail. We got extremely lost several times since there were no markers or signs to help us. This did not seem well maintained, and most of the trail was just a multi-purpose ATV road that did not seem to be meant for hiking.

This was a great trail to do with our 4 sons. There are great inclines and the scenery is gorgeous. I can't wait to do it again in the fall.

Great hike in the winter. Quiet and didn't see a soul. The trail thru Rhododendron was magnificent and peaceful. The last mile is intense gaining 500 ft elevation.

Easy hike until the last uphill aerobic stretch. The most beautiful swamp I have ever come across with some great vistas. I would recommend.

The lake is a beautiful destination. Rocky trails, but we enjoyed it. Not well marked so use the app to help. Basically taking rights will get you to the lake when there is splits in the roadThere is a short cut to the right too that brings you to the edge of the lake that is marked.
