Backpacked this with a few friends. It is a nice trail with very little elevation. No super views but still pretty walking by the lake. Doubt I will do it again but is a good trail to train on for harder hikes. Most of the water is stagnant on this trail. Would recommend bringing most of what you plan on drinking/using. Starting from the eastern side it is 15 miles to the first campsites. Keep this in mind.

Fun point to point. Trail is very kind, elevation-wise. However, I didn't see anyone else on here mention hunting season (October to ???). Some signs suggested that you couldn't hike without orange clothes, some others said it was optional. I did hear gunshots on both mornings, more on the first day when I was close to West Dam.

Another note, looks like they are doing some road construction in Wildwood park that has impacted the trail. Right around the road crossings in the park they've felled a lot of trees and cleared a new roadbed. Unfortunately the new road cuts the trail several times, and no effort has been made to direct hikers clearly, so I lost the trail a few times in this area. I imagine they would reroute the trail so it doesn't cross the new road so many times like it does now, but at the moment it is somewhat confusing to follow the trail through the construction.
