Fun moderate trail. I wouldn't call it strenuous like the signs say. Get there early if going on the weekend because it gets busy fast. Week days are mellow

I did a bit more than the loop. I started at the North end of trail 8 and picked up 3 after I crossed the creek. Then I picked up 4 and followed it until it met 5. I chose to walk around the road to pick up 6 and followed that all the way out via 7. Every minute spent on the trail was beautiful! Trail 5 is definitely rugged. The smaller Falls were pretty, plenty of varied landscape. Next hike I'll take trail 2 up to the big Falls.

I've done both the Morrison and Rimrock as single day hikes. I enjoy both in the early spring. There is a small waterfall on the Morrison Trail (41.845510, -78.894960)
The trail is clearly marked and well worn. The scenery for both trails is great. I highly recommend the Morrison trail to someone just getting started in hiking/backpacking.

This is an easy trail with great views and lots of benches along the way to rest and enjoy the open fields and views of the rocks. Also some great city views. Best during the week since it's much less busy. Bummer you have to pay $7 every time you go but since it's a state park you have to. But worth it for sure.

Beautiful views all around the lake. Great scenery. Looks absolutely amazing regardless of the season.

I hiked the blue trail on 4/25/17.
Nice rolling trail through pine forest.
I gave it a three because of the ignorant people with dogs. Even before I hit the trail there were two couples with dogs in the parking lot and only one was on a lead. Evidence of dogs was left on the trail by lazy owner and I know the difference between wild animal crap and domestic.
Saw dogs off the lead on the trail and upon my return to the parking lot.
Blue is five miles. Trail head has clean restroom pit toilets .

Hiked on 5/21/16 and 6/14/16. Trail is on the road. Nice walk, except the last 0.5ish mile to the top. Small, slippery rocks... walk on the sides. View from the top is beautiful. Nice quiet Sat morning hike up with dogs. Many trucks and ATVs were heading up at about 2pm when we were walking back down. The Tuesday we hiked up, we were completely alone except for one Rocky mountain power truck.

Great hike! I did this today with my dog. Not difficult, but makes you feel like you've earned a beer afterwards. The views are amazing. Still lots of snow, but I didn't need snowshoes to get to the loch.
