I'm not sure if these directions are correct. The trail they take you to is so overgrown. I thought people pay to get into Indiana state parks/forests? What does Indiana use that money for?

Enjoyed this trail watching lake activities during a good part of back trail. A bit swampy in some areas during wet season.

Pretty flooded with all the rain recently, but that’s to be expected. Very fun trail.

Fun trail but was COVERED in all different kinds of ticks. We had to stop every 30 min or so to pick the ticks off. After the trail we went straight to the beach to change into swimsuits. We found another ~15 ticks on our clothing and socks. We had used a deet free bug spray. I would suggest getting something stronger if doing this trail in the summer.

Nice trail ! In early spring parts of the trail could be flooded due to the lake and spring rains.

Great trail, very muddy in spots after a recent rain but very worth it. Had the trail all to myself.

I liked it and loved all the pine forest around the lake.

Love this trail! Fun as can be! Between the lake view, all the Pines, creek crossings and maintenance of the trail its perfect! Not hard at all (has its moments though) only saw one backcountry campsite but did see two group sites at recreation areas. Definitely a trail I will come back to!

Nice trail for a day hike

Nice trail, listed at 5.9 miles on map. Opportunity for water and restrooms at beach area in season. Trail follow a the road for a short time on the south side of the lake and you can hear the beach at a point or two on the trail. We met a pair of mountain bikers, but otherwise nobody else on the trail. There has been a fair amount of rain lately, so several wet and muddy spots where you will get your feet wet, but also a couple of places to filter water, if needed. I expect a couple of the streams have water except when it's really dry out. we parked at the beach and enjoyed a swim and picnic after the hike.

Hiked a day after rain so it was sloppy but totally worth it!

Hiked the lake on July 5, 2015 and it was messy muddy which made it that much more fun. A lot of obstacles to overcome with trees down across the trail which made it more challenging. It was awesome!

This was a nice trail just like all the other reviews suggest.The only thing that I didn't like was there was a lot of noise from beach area I like solitude and didn't get it here.

Excellent trail! Allow up to 2 hrs to hike this trail at a leisure pace. I love the view of the lake from the dam. We will definitely hike one again. Don't forget get to spray for ticks. I would rate this moderate on a difficulty scale.
