I went on May 30th. There were about 7 cars and we were able to find a spot to park on the street. The parking on the campsite is $8 a day. There is a bathroom on the campsite. It was not too horrifying lol The hike was moderate. If you are used to hiking, it should be on the easy side. We stopped a couple of times to sip some water and the total time was less than 5hours. Some spots were rocky and narrow. Watch out for some bikers. It was easy to follow except for a couple of spots. My friend had a little trail book with a map and it was very helpful! (some trails are blocked off with trees so that you don't take the wrong way ) More you go up, there were fries and mosquitos around you!!!! But you won't get bugged as long as you are moving. the only disappointing part was there was no view at the trailhead.

Really fun hike with pleasant views the first half and dense beautiful woods on the second. my app stopped recording a little over a mile of the hike so i actually went about 13.5 miles but i did explore around a bit. Most of the trail isn’t super pass friendly which was a bit of an issue for me and my very enthusiastic dog, though did not see many people on the trail. I imagine bugs to be an issue on warmer days as they were a little annoy on a cool overcast day. Finally, beware of bikers, all that i came across were very polite but like i said the trail is really narrow in some parts.

Wonderful, short and easy! Nice for a hot day! Lots of shade! We hiked on a cloudy rainy day and we loved it! True PNW colors and foliage! Great place for photos! Packed in mud. Fine in my Chacos! Well cleared VERY narrow paths which we very much enjoyed! Oh! And the views of town, Fernan lake, and CDA lake too!!!! Oh! And it’s a quick one! Loop under an hour with lots of stops for views!! On our faves list now!

My advice. If you HAVE to hike in the Canfield area, stick to the Cave trail, Trail D, and Trail 8. Everything else is not hiker friendly. This is a multi use area so dirt bikes and mountain bikes are to be expected. You are walking through their trails, not hiking. I would personally never advise anyone to come hike here.

Great trail for stretching and working your legs a bit, especially early season. Quite steep and narrow for the first 1.5 miles, with some rock and root outcroppings to negotiate. Very little room to pass in that section, so use caution for downhill bikers brave enough to bring their bikes down it. Quite a few wildflowers now, morels are pretty picked over. Filtered views of Beauty Bay and CdA in the first 3 miles. Distance to the top is listed incorrectly. AllTrails logged me at 11.12miles, two other GPS showed 11.3 and 11.6. That is going all the way to the top. If you take the CdA overlook branch and do not go to the top, you might keep it right at 10. Trail drains and drys well after rains. A few dogs, mostly kept under control by their owners. Plenty of shade, not exposed.

Easy to follow trail and well maintained/ Beautiful views for the first couple of miles, tad bit muddy, definitely recommend boots!

Fun little trail to do with kids! Short but beautiful, shady, lots of little wildflowers and butterflies.

This trail was beautiful. My toddler did amazing thanks to all the bugs and critters we were able to see along the way. We stopped at a couple of the ponds and were able to see all of the tadpoles & some salamanders. Birds singing everywhere. Will definitely be back to venture further.

I got here at like 7 am and it was gorgeous watching the trail and wetlands slowly get bathed in light. There were lots of birds singing and flitting about, and I was able to see lots of flowers and amazing views! Other than being spooked by a squirrel and scaring some deer on the trail when I sneezed I enjoyed it! However, there were a few fallen logs across the path, and there was some muddy spots. I would definitely repeat this trail!

Beautiful day for a hike. Parking lot was pretty full, but didn't notice it on the trails. We hiked all the way to the top to the lookout deck. Definitely worth the hike. We will be hiking this trail again.

This was bad ass and I’m really feeling it the next day. Thank goodness for the trail app leading me through as it wasn’t marked good and ended up being 7 miles. Found morels about 20 minutes in. Will do this one again. Views are incredible.

This was a great trail to take the dogs on and see almost no one else.

Decent trail that hasn't been completely fully developed in spots but it was a great half hour little hike.

It was pretty easy, pretty field views and the trees were gorgeous. However, it was not the most interesting hike ever

It's a lovely hike. We brought our old lady dog and she did great. We spotted a turkey vulture, which was cool. We also saw a fox on the lake's shore and a little snake too. Our toddler really liked all the cool sticks and bugs.

Dog friendly and not too crowded. Ran into about five groups on the trail. There are multiple paths you can take and it's to to know where they all go. We must have taken a shorter route because it was only about 1.2 miles in the trail and then .5 miles to get back on the road.

No clear markings for trail. Great scenic and short hike for family and dogs

Nice short leg stretcher nice view of the lake. Great of the city to put a little trail in on that side of the lake I’ve been looking at that side for 35 years thinking it sure would be nice to be over there. Short and sweet

liked the trail, nice views of the lake. We found it not well marked, this led to a much longer walk, but that was okay since I needed the exercise.

Area closed due to the stay home orders. It is a very easy walk on a wooden boardwalk. Lots of birds but also close to a big road with lots of noise. But worth it.

Tried this a couple days ago. Really muddy. Trail mimic’s a bowl of spaghetti right at the beginning branches out as it goes. Nice and quiet with wildlife.
