Check the maps on location before starting this hike. Over half was closed but it was a nice trail the parts we used.

Trail was partly closed due construction,...but im stupid and road around the barrier or sign and road the 7.1 miles on Thanksgiving weekend 2017. I just got a new specialized bike and there was a lot of roots but if you have a good bike you can go over them pretty easily especially if you're younger. I'm 48 and little bit overweight LOL. But I still can get over these roots pretty easily. Great workout for me. I wish people would post their age on here to tell how difficult the trail is. Obviously a person 25 years old and 185 lb is going to ride this Trail like it's nothing. Me I enjoyed it and it took some really good effort to get over some of the spots. You have a great time on this Trail.

Great trails. Clean and offers different challenges. Only down fall now is some routes not available due to construction/repairs. Great overall experience for most levels.

Took my daughter here for her first state park hike and she loved it. Before you go, call the park. you can only do an out and back on this trail due to construction on the spill way. We ended up hiking around 8 miles. Saw 2 deer, frogs, plenty of spiders across the trail, and an eagle. enjoyed the quiet hike and will return when we can complete the loop.

Moderately technical. Small hills add interest. Winding and fun!

Great hike in a good challenge. Be aware part of the trail was closed on February 9, 2017. Just cut out the most scenic part of the trail if you're coming from the trailhead going counterclockwise. Well marked in a good trail.

Trails well marked and easy to follow. There are lots of other trails to take if you want more or less miles to hike. We didn't see much wildlife as park was packed with people. Enjoyable hike in the outdoors as scenery changes often.

We drove over an hour to try out this trail and it was well worth it! Great for intermediate mountain bikers. I recorded over 11 miles of trails. Saw a couple rattlesnakes so be cautious but overall amazing experience!

Sandy in areas and the Chinquapin Trail was halfway closed due to flooding by the dam. We hiked about 6 miles on a day that was scattered showers so it was extremely humid in September. We loved the trail though.

It was OK... Views of the lake in a few spots was awesome... We were hiking the trail... Lots of mountain bikers... Which wasn't bad... But I have no idea how the mountain bikers managed all of the roots and limbs in the trail...

Overall... I really enjoyed it... I'll do it again
