My son and I did a 16 mile overnight hike there this week end. There were plenty of springs and wild life and we only saw two other people the whole trip. This is a great trail system because you hike for a few hours or a few days by utilizing the different trails to make different routes.

Completed the Pickett Loop today just fine. Marker #24 was gone and many trees were down across the trail. Reported that to the welcome center and she said she would pass it on for clearing. If marker #24 is still missing when you go out, just stay on the main path and you'll wind your way back around to #23 and make it back to the trail head #1. Where all the trees were down was overgrown some so I don't think it's been walked much lately. You feel like you're off the path but just keep moving forward and when it cuts back away from the water and you starting going up in elevation you know you've made it through. The blue markers are still there to affirm your path. Spent a good 4 hours hiking two trails and going for a swim.

Nice hike. However, nowhere is it explained that the fort is submerged under Kentucky Lake. Found this important fact out at the trail head. Would have been nice to know, helpful info.
