Awesome trail, well maintained. Was very muddy and soggy during this rainy day. Do not choose this hike on rainy days! Beautiful views and lists of history at Big Ridge State Park!

The trail isn’t well maintained at the end. Definitely go in the winter while everything is dead or the trail will be too grown up to get through. Ghost house trail is not on all trails but that is the trial I started on. They all loop back together at the end. Also read the history behind the trail before you go.

First to Review

We did this hike in June and the back part of the trail was very overgrown. I would recommend doing it in the fall or winter when the leaves are down and you can see the lake. It is a good strenuous hike with many steep hills. The end is very steep going down so would use caution during slick conditions.
