I'm not difficult to please when it comes to hiking. Give me some beautiful scenery, a nice day, and my dog and I'm a happy girl. There were some beautiful wild flowers at the start of the trail and the rest was wooded- nice enough. BUT.... this trail should be rated as moderate and not easy. The trail was very narrow to the point where my dog couldn't even walk next to me. It was sandy alternating with mud and there were a lot of tree roots in the path. There were also quite a few climbs which I enjoy but may not be for everyone. This trail is frequented by horses and there was soooo much horse poop I felt like I had to be on the lookout for it the entire hike. And of course I spent a lot of time keeping my pup away from it. It was a nice hike for us but I don't think we'll do this one again.

Nice woods. The "open" part of the trail had no air moving and it was a hot day. This trail did not go down to the lake at all but the lake is not nice at this end anyway.

I set out to bike it but had a malfunction and had to push it back. I ended up walking this easy loop. This trail is accessed from the North side of the lake off Farys Mill Road. The lake at this end is ugly and I fully understand why the rangers wanted their headquarters at the beautiful southern end. More about Loop One, it spends about half it's life in the woods and half out in the open. The woods are nice. The open part is through seven foot wild flowers and a lot of butterflies. This trail is multi-use and there was a lot of horse poo and mountain bike tracks to prove it.
