We left a little late to do the full loop, but there are many excellent views along the trail, and several options to loop back. The Ely Universal Trail is wide and smooth, the rest is rocky and muddy with a lot of ups and downs. Well marked and maintained.

Nice easy trails that offer beautiful views of the water. Have been here multiple times and have always enjoyed it.

I have walked this trail for years and it still is the most special walk in Burlington for me. All of the trees and plants are pure magic as well as the intersting rocky terrain. The church has very recently marked out the trails better and installed foot bridges/stone steps where needed at beginning of the trail! I cant recommend Lone Rock more!

Breathtaking views; not well marked. We went off trail down by the cliffs and scrambled up a steep ledge, which was fun for us but would be difficult or impossible for others. Easy to moderate (roots and crags) overall with exhilarating views from Rocky Point.

Nice trail. I was happy to have downloaded the maps because I wasn’t sure about some trails. Nice trail for a day. Read on the lookout! Marvelous! Some were jumping from the rock!

What an awesome local walk for Burlington. This is stunning and well kept but doesn’t feel like just park walking. Love this. Will do it often while in Burlington :) It does belong to the church but it’s super easy and free to log on and register for entry. I’ll be making a donation since I plan on using this all summer ❤️

The trail is on private, church owned property. You are required to sign a release form at the beginning of the trail. The beginning of the trail is well marked, but once you get on the trail, I didn't see any additional markings. You need to park on the church grounds to enter the trail. There are some nice views of the lake and boats from within the trails. I probably would not go back to that trail, as there are much better trails around.
