Easy walk around the lake. We walked a little bit of all of the trails. Wound up on the highway outside of the park. Wrong turn somewhere. A couples trees down across path but easy to walk over.

Nicely groomed trail. A pretty easy, flat trail around Hartman Lake.

Nice hike on a hot and humid morning, the wild life was a bonus, 2 deer walked across the trail right in front of me, and didn’t even care that I was there, the geese and their Babies were a different story though

Very quiet park. Did not see another person the entire time we were here. The trails were a little rough. At times the only path was where a maintenance vehicle had driven a while ago.

I've camped and hiked here on quite a few occasions, it's a great state park to disappear in for day hiking or a weekend of hiking and camping.

We followed the ice age trail section in & through this area. Trail well marked & maintained. Loved the depth of the forest. Also grateful for the pit toilets! Beautiful area!

The single track trails were smooth and well-marked. There were quite a few people biking, however, and even though they're said to be two-way, you're going to have to be careful of a collision if someone is coming from the opposite direction.

Excellent trail with a lot of fun obstacles. Great starter trail or really good for better bikers as well. Two-way single track was a little scary to think but only saw one other biker on trails... Will definetly be back.

Great trails. Could be done by anyone, many different routes. There's isn't one 8 mile loop like it may seem because of the description, but there is def 8 miles of trails you can navigate between. A lot of shade too! I was out on a sunny saturday afternoon and came across just one couple, which is always nice. Will be back.
