Did the 8 mile orange trail. There were a few points where I did get a little lost, especially towards the end. I couldn't find where the path continued ended up going around in circles,so I just turned around and made it an out and back instead of looping around.It is a beautiful and quiet trail. I'd recommend it. Didn't see one bug.

very nice hike along the lake, through the woods and some marshes. Mostly secluded except for area along the lake. there are 3 hikes available which are all excellently marked the whole way - we did red which was supposed to be 6 miles. Very happy we did this one!

Good family hiking place. Did the 8 mile hike once before in the rain and the 2 mile hike today. With a toddler on your shoulders most of the way it's more like a 4 mile hike :)

Loved this trail! We did the 4.6 mile loop and we're delighted with its scenery, changing landscapes and well- marked trails. Truly lovely for a winter hike and looks like it might be beautiful in late spring/early summer as wild rhododendron are everywhere!
