Pleasant walk in Fall. The scenery is pleasant, the trail is well worn.

Nice loop trail with easy access. Nice views of the lake, and rock structure.

Some minor hills but overall an easy hike!

Beautiful easy hike.

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.

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.

Easy hike to do with family.
