The park itself looks nice with a well maintained and run campground but the trail system is an absolute mess. The maps (from the park) are inaccurate and there are blazed, well maintained trails that aren't even on the map. If you try this, I highly recommend going counter-clockwise because the ending of the west part of the trail basically disappears into the forest.

The trail goes back and forth between being very muddy (especially when it’s following the creek) and being overgrown enough that I had to be extra careful about where I put my foot in case of critters. The stone trough is fine, my life is not especially richer having seen it, but the wildlife along the trail was great. Very, very steep at times. Also doesn’t match the park map trail shape so that was fun.

Trail was very well blazed and looked as though the grass had been cut recently. Started out pretty flat but quickly turns into a steep incline. The stone trough was neat but nothing incredible.

Like all other reviews say... don't do this trail if it's recently rained. Crossed a creek 14 times in it! Pretty wilderness down in the bottoms though. Not listed here is the North Boundry Trail which is an extra mile extenstion that is fairly flat with lots of moss growth and very beautiful shale barrens on top of a ridge for you to view.

Don't mess around with this one. We were not prepared for the Stone Trough Trail. We entered thru the camp ground, scaled a mountain, got lost, found the trough, found some old water pump thing, then tracked thru some thickets. Great day. We felt like we survived it. But go prepared, and you'll love it too.

This trail was awesome! We too went after a rain and it was treacherous, but so much fun. We all came back covered in mud. I highly recommend it. The trough all the way at the top was cool, as was walking the ridge line, then coming back down was slick, but watching every person fall was a blast.

First to Review

Only done the stone trough loop, and its a doozy, it was also during a rainstorm. Overall it's what you expect in that country, mountainous terrain with lots of hardwood forest. A few of the descents were very steep with no switchbacks. Making it a little treacherous with the rain. I had to go ninja style and grab roots and slide down backward. They wouldn't be terrible in drier conditions. Saw a bear maybe towards the end. I couldn't really tell, just a black figure and leaves rustling. Overall it seems like a good trail with some serious climbs. I look forward to going back on a drier day and doing the whole loop. There is also another trail connected, North Boundary Trail, making it a few more miles.
