I hiked this trail at the beginning of October 2017. BE AWARE THAT THE BRIDGE IS CLOSED TO ALL FOOT AND BIKE TRAFFIC!. Very disappointed that this isn't listed, as it caused us to park in town, walk to the end of the bridge and back, then drive across the lake and park on the side of the road on the north side of the lake. We only hiked the first "12" miles of the trail before turning around- almost the entire trail is on roads, both blacktop and gravel. only about 1/2 mile of this portion, from the bridge to the junction with old river road is in the woods, and this comes out in the back yard of a campground with permanent campers. kind of uncomfortable. Will not hike this trail again, but I do recommend a side trip down to the state park and Fort Watson.
