The direction gets confusing once you reach the beach house. Using a map may be helpful.

Fairly easy. Well marked and maintained trail.

Not a very long trail, good for a short hike with moderate difficulty. Took maybe 25 mins for the whole loop. Kind of has a view of the mountains at the top but trees are in the way. It is a fun hike though, I've done it before and I'm sure I'll do it again.

Nice view from the top of the ridge. Lots of rocks, but most are flat and act as steps.

Great trail. Our four year old son navigated it just perfectly. Lots of rocks and roots to climb over which will keep a kid's interest in climbing. He didn't noticed how high we were getting until we reached the top. Plenty of great photo ops as well with all of the moss covered boulders. The trail is marked very well with yellow dots and gives you the opportunity to chose different options in a couple of spots. We will be returning soon.

Fun time with family. We saw a family of deer and one squirrel. There is a play ground and a beach. It was a lot rocky. would not do it with a 5 year old.

From the bridge near the beach. Elevations range from 900 to 1100 feet. Trail leads past Oriskany Sandstone outcropping on Warm Springs Ridge, Indian Run. Pine and mixed hardwood trees, laurel, flowering shrubs and wildflowers in season. I did this one in October so the flowers were long gone but it was still beautiful.
