Good hike! Last half of going down was narrower steep switch backs. Take care on that part if you have little ones with you.

Too half of the trail was great, but my kids were bummed that we couldn’t get to the beach or tree house. They were the only reasons we selected this hike. Hopefully it’ll open back up soon.

30 minutes down and 35 minutes back up. The trail to the beach is currently closed due to excessive mud from recent rains.

Trail is beautiful but half of it is closed and very muddy. So you can’t go to the stump house.

The trail connecting to the beach trail and the stump house trail is currently closed. The other loops are open but very wet and muddy in spots. Nice walk in the woods though! As long as you are not expecting to see the other features.

HikingGreat!

I'm a very out of shape new hiker, so please take this info in that state of mind. We took Saw Mill and Margaret, then the access road back. Lots of rocks and roots for trip hazards (for us clumsy peeps), and pretty steep on the way down. There's a CLEAN porta potty at the bottom (yay)! Steep-ish road access on the way back (stopped at least 4 times to catch my breath). VERY pretty, when I could look up! Seasoned hikers will LOVE IT! Newbie beware. I'd rate it around a 5-6. Trails well kept but people still brought their pets.

HikingGreat!

I would say easy for adults but have slippery areas for Kiddos.. or maybe my kiddos are not wearing shoes with good grip. The beach trail area was closed when we went there but the trees are so pretty!

Small walkway bridge over Creek had large sign saying trail is closed and cannot cross. see pics. this means you can't get to sawmill or beach. whole trail should probably be marked as closed since can't get to any of highlights including shoreline. looks like would be very nice otherwise. plenty of people just going around the sign so it's up to you. 8/10/20

It was a pretty trail. Not hard but pretty much up hill on the way back. Passed a handful of people so not super busy on Sunday Mid Morning. Definitely worth checking out.

Beach trail still closed as of 8/1/20. Rest of trails are fine, but disappointing not to be able to reach the beach. Posted notice mentions some kind of weather damage. May be it’s too narrow to comply with COVID requirements.

The beach trail is still closed as of 7/16/2020. The loop around was amazing per usual. When I use AllTrails the mileage actually shows 3.5 miles total for the entire loop.
