Hiked this trail with a friend on December 16, 2017. We started at Cherry Lake and took the loop clockwise. There was a bit of confusion as we got to the road, just past the Stepp cemetery. The original trail (the one still shown on the map) crosses the road to the west of the cemetery lane. However, it has been rerouted to follow the forest road to the east for a hundred yards or so. (The blazes say follow the road, so get off of your phone and follow it!) The reroute is well marked, as is the rest of the trail. There is another reroute, closer to the end of the clockwise loop, that avoids a timber harvest area. It stays down in the creek bottom instead of climbing back up into the hills. There was no active timber harvesting at the time of our visit. Hope this is helpful. Happy trails!

Good crisp morning hike- I️ carried my backpack just to get back in shape after not going for a couple months! We didn’t hurry but the hills
Give you a good workout!

Nice quite well maintained trails. Take our dogs ,lashed, here for cold weather outings. We avoid it in warm season because the place has extremely high tick population. You also must hick the Archery trail, provided they are not shooting.

Started Friday evening and finished Sunday afternoon. Was a challenging trip but definitely beautiful. Trail was marked very well, we only had to rely on GPS on a couple of logged areas. Can’t wait to come back and do again!

Did it as a long day hike. Challenging with lots of up and downs. Look forward to backpacking it. No wildlife sightings. Most of trail easy to follow, although there were a few tricky areas.

Awesome one nighter on Dec 2 weekend. Beautiful views. Didn't see much wildlife, although we did see an eagle cruising over Lake Monroe. Last weekend of hunting season, we did hear numerous gun shots in the evening and morning. Encountered one hunter who was processing his deer on the trail. I'll do this trail again, but not during hunting season.
