Moderate hike with forest views. Blazes are faded but reliable, fairly well marked for the attentive hiker. We only saw onle other group of hikers as we were finishing ( on a Wednesday afternoon.)

My first impression was disappointing. The path began as a access road with ruts and rocks, or so I thought. Once I reached the point where the long loop & short loop separated, the path became an interesting one person width path that wound through the trees and very near the lake. I did not see another person on the trail which gave my Husky time to grab a drink about half way through the long loop. The trail was a blast and the changes in elevation kept it very interesting from a physically challenging point of view. This will definitely be a staple of my trail walking with the dog!!

This was a nice area with the water view. My friend and i went on a morning hike and it was calm and relaxing. Well recommended for a short hike and calm setting.

I really enjoyed this trail although it is tough and not for beginners. I highly recommend taking trekking poles. I did not have them and it was still doable but there are several tough areas where they would come in handy! There are a lot of elevation changes. Definitely a difficult trail and like I said before, not for beginners, but it’s beautiful! Word of advice, look for the white marks on trees if you aren’t sure where to go or if you lose the trail for a minute. Some areas can get a little confusing but the white marks on the trees helped keep me on track.

Wonderful trail, marked nicely

Decent trails when you aren't crossing streets or walking through parking lots or shelter locations to get to the next secion of the trail. Wetlands were beautiful and walking along the lake was nice. Not very rugged at all.

Hiked in for the weekend and found a great campsite. They're not all easy to find- just look for the fire rings. Wonderful fall weather and great views. The hike in was pretty moderate but felt like it went quickly.
