Nice clean trail, some nice views

I hiked this in a counter clockwise direction. Clear path. Markers when needed. The observation deck next to the creek was nice. Over all a nice trail!

This is primarily an out and back trail with a short loop at the beginning. I skipped the loop going out and picked it up on my return. There was a downed tree at the first inlet that requires decent climbing. I’m sure they’ll have it cleared soon.

I wish I had had a trash bag with me as there was quite a bit of trash that had been washed in with all the rain/flooding.

I lost the trail for a minute or so at a creek crossing. I think the trail could use a few more markers in those areas.

Over all a great little hike!

A peaceful walk along the shore of the lake. A much narrower path than memorial loop.

Great hike for a family. Half of the trail is easy walking. The other half will take more effort.

Enjoyable walk. Trail head is easy to find. Trail is easy to follow. A few small hills along the way.

Nice shorter trail. Red Springs are pretty cool. Kid friendly.

Nice hike along the western lakeshore. Would say this is an Easy + difficulty rating. It appears you may be able to continue around the north tip of the lake by taking a left before the stairs to the observation deck. We did this hike while the trees were still bare but it must be much more beautiful once everything is in bloom.

Just a tip...the trail entrance is a wide, mowed path that heads north from the center of the parking lot. Take the path off to the right once on the mowed path. Going straight takes you to the latrines.

An easy walker. Slightly overgrown with vegetation in a few areas. I was slightly disappointed in the overlook. The view is obstructed by trees and brush; overall a nice trail.

Another nice hike at Whitewater Memorial State Park. 57 steps at the observation deck at the end of the trail. Trail head is at the Nature Preserve parking lot.

We hiked this last fall. We parked at the boathouse and walked to the campgrounds and back. Found some empty snake eggs and lots of buzzards on this trip.

We hiked this trail last fall. We liked that it showed a lot of the park as it is one of the central most trails.

We hiked this trail last fall. We liked the variety of trees and lake views throughout the hike. We camped in the family cabins and did this one early in the day. There is a small loop at the beginning, so we went on one part of the loop going and came out another just to see the entire trail.

We hiked almost everyone of these trails. There was only one loop that we didn't get to due to rain on the last day and we had planned the hike for that time. We stayed in one of the cabins and hiked in the morning and evening with our 3 children. My youngest was nearly 4 yo at the time and she kept up very well. Don't miss all the steps down and back up at the dam.
