This trail is not maintained at all.. There were 3 large trees that were across the trail before we even got to the second wooden bridge. This would be a great trail if there weren't so many trees blocking the trail. Also not much parking at all. There's only room for 3 or 4 vehicles at the trail head. We parked about an 1/8 mile down the road and rode to trail head.

Trail was very clean, easy to follow and a lot of good places to stop on the way. I believe it is multipurpose. You could bike, jog or walk this trail.
It's very pet friendly. I completed it with a 5 month old pup and a 12 week old pup and we stopped twice on the way in and on the way out.
The hike was very easy. It may be a little long for a beginner but there are Rick's to sit on along the way. Ihave a 73 year old mom. I will be taking her as well. She will be able to do it with a couple of stops.
The stream at the end is SO beautiful! Happy hiking! Also, if you follow the stream down, there is a waterfall.
AND PLEASE..... IF YOU HAVE DOGS, TAKE POOP BAGS AND PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG.

Great trail. Views of the lake. Stream at trail end worth hike in.

A great trail for a light run. Decent elevations, not too grown over, and a view of the lake during certain seasons. Only found one trail head that is sort of obscure. Not much parking. Otherwise, a great option.

My son and I had a great time hiking this and another trail. not to much wildlife but it was the middle of the day, however we did see deer tracks. I have to agree that the signage could have been better, also parking, we saw trailhead signs but no pulloffs, we did see where other vehicles had pulled off on the side of the road and we did the same. Overall 4stars.

I was pleasantly surprised by this trail. The path is clear and marked really well. The creek at the end is really pretty. We'll hike this one again.

Nice, long, relatively easy hike. The trail was clean and the scenery was pretty. You'll cross two wooden bridges and end at where the water flows off of the mountain, into the lake. My husky loves when we finally make it there, he starts going crazy as soon as he can hear the water flowing. It's our favorite trail in the park.

OK trail. A few good size trees have fallen over the trial at several points. The latter half of the trail was overgrown. Good change of elevation throughout.

The park's map mileage is off, listing this as 3.1 miles. My Garmin tracked it at 4.1. It's moderately marked well, with a few turns leading to a bit of confusion. Still, this was an enjoyable hike with some elevation. My 9 year old son enjoyed it and had no problems.

Nice out and back. Good shade and easy ups and downs. Perfect for trail running and Mtn bikes.

Varied terrain made it interesting. Only one section that I would call difficult. Signage could have been better. There were parts that I didn't know what trail I was on.

My husband and I hiked this trail together. We are in our 50s and overweight but we managed to make it. Some parts were difficult but we survived and enjoyed it. We had no problem staying on the trail. We just followed the paint markings on the trees.

Amazing hike with three dogs. Beautiful views of Short Creek and one bald eagle.

This trail is obscured in many areas due to trees down from lingering tornado damage, and the trail junctions are unclear, resulting in my following animal trails accidentally instead of the real trail. I took 2 dogs, and while we completed the loop around the island, we weren't on the trail for about 70% of the hike, it wasn't without a fair amount of difficulty. I had to lift my oldest of my large dogs over many tree trunks.

I did this trail today and was very disappointed. It is not maintained very well hard to even tell where the trail is in some parts.

Myself, my son and my brother-in-law and his son completed this trail in the fall of 2014. Wonderful trail with a surprise at the water at the turnaround. We are going back to hike out and picnic in that turn around area in 2015.

I love this trail. Lots of ups and downs. A solid moderate level trail. This is a great trail for conditioning for a backpacking trip.
