Took the kids and it was great for them. Would be a good trail for dogs on a leash, and also trail running.

Great trail. The last 1/2 mile or so was on a service road. Overall a decent trail.

I did the trail as a warmup for some trips we are getting ready for. There were 5 of us & we left around 12:00 the first day & backpacked to campsite #2 & camped. We hiked out the next morning & were done by 12:00. This is an excellent trail for beginners & is well marked other than the beginning, close to the maintenance building where some work was being done. The trail takes you to some pretty remote areas & was more challenging at times than I expected.

It's a pretty fun trail. There are lots of changes in elevation and the northwest end of the trail runs by Lake Monroe. There were a lot of trail runners out there, but it was also the first warm weekend of Spring in Indy. Great hike overall.

Parked at the Deam Lake trailhead and hiked north to the Oxley Memorial trailhead on E. Banes Hollow Rd. 4 days 3 nights on late March. This trail was no joke with how steep the climbs were. Had some weird areas of what looked like an abandoned logging site for a few miles so there were just a whole bunch of cut down trees everywhere but for the most part it was good. Some good view as well. Also if you plan to do this trail, there are established campsites along the trail that i wish were marked somewhere. Most of them are at the tops of climbs and some have some amazing views for sunsets and sunrises. Not an easy trail.

Nice but you'll have some of trek by road... added an extra 1.2 around Lake Ogle.

Best to come during week if possible.

Had a lovely walk in the woods with enough adventure my teens enjoy it, even in the rain.
