Quick and easy trail. Currently very muddy from all of the rain, but otherwise great.

Fantastic hike. Camped at site 3 but every camp site looked fantastic except the 1st one.

Definitely not an easy trail as stated on the review. Most of the trail you have to watch your step due to rocks, mud, tree roots, or cliffs. It was slow going. There were some nice payoffs throughout the trails with some great views and interesting terrain.

If you enjoy slogging close to 10 miles through mud and horse crap, this trail is for you!

Great trail to hike and Backcountry camp. There are 5 very well marked, designated camp sites. They are quite well maintained, cleared of underbrush and substantial in size. The trail offers a good variation in scenery and a long hill into the trail and again up and out of the trail.

Wide open trail along old access road. 1.8 miles one way, so 3.6 out and back. Muddy in spots, but easily avoided.

Not well maintained. beware of snakes.

Beautiful late afternoon hike.

This is a sweet and short trial. To get to the trail head you go into the parking area for the apartment complex the Stratum. There was several parking spots open for visitors when we went, but I doubt if that is always the case. This seems like it would be a great place to trail run.

Holy. Freaking. Ticks. Never seen it that bad out on this trail! We bailed on backpacking bc we were COVERED in the little itty bitty ticks.

I’m a trail runner and have done several around the area. This one was so beautiful, my top rated. It was a bit muddy and wet in some places but I ran the day after a rain. Also- this is the best condition for “muddy” in all of Deam Wilderness/Hoosier NF I’ve been on. It is super nice because it’s not a horse trail- so the mud isn’t very deep like the rest of the trails. The variety of the hike is great. Perfect distance. Just know you’re going to get a little muddy, but it doesn’t make the hike hard.

East to moderate. Well marked.

Good long trail, super well marked, long but not strenuous! We are good hikers and it took just over 3hrs! Lovely lake view. But lots of trees down :( because of the tempest this last week

Nice trail for backpacking. easy to follow, with plenty of water source on the way. The part close to the parking lot has a lot of elevation gain. Many reviews said it was muddy. I was lucky that there weren’t significant rain in the past 2 weeks. I can see part of the trail was muddy. But by the time I was there it was mostly semi dried. For a small portion of it that was still saturated, I could go on a sideway trail without getting mud on my boots. The peninsula is beautiful. Worth the hike. There was strong wind during sunset but wind stopped by sleep time. Firewood is abundant. Although many campsites are not completely leveled. If you have a slippery tent like me you might need to be careful picking the campsite.

Nice trail. Perfect length for an afternoon hike with the family. Well maintained and somewhat varied scenery.

This trail is for the avid hiker. I would suggest trail shoes and hiking poles due to slippery conditions in some areas and sliding rock and dirt.
