Enjoyed the trail with its variation in terrain: gravel, meadow, rooted narrow paths and a few creek crossings. Also had a few steep ups & downs. Signs / blazes were sorely lacking, though, and contributed to a missed turn or two along the way.

Not much to see but there are some nice streams. Trails are clear and maintained.

There were several people on the trail.. I was told that you can usually have it to yourself.

Nice trail. I do want to come back and do more trails in Holiday Lake State Park.
