Good trail in the middle of the city. This is a great escape from the traffic and winter shopping frenzies. The trail is easily accessible for many ages. The only downfall, there was major flooding when we went that blocked off the path. We managed though and finished the loop!

wonderful short workout hike with the dog. Fall leaves make a it a little challenging to find the trail and hides trip hazards well. Dog and I both enjoyed the trail.

Love this trail in the fall beautiful colors. I recommend before you go during to be familiar with the trail. It’s easy to lose the trail with all the leaves. I prefer it in the colder seasons just because I avoid all the spider webs that happen during summer lol.

Great place to take the kids (12, 8, 5, 2). The terrain is challenging but not enough to make it too difficult. If you park at the lodge you will have access to bathrooms and a restaurant if you so desire. We made the hike the day after a torrential rain so certain parts of the trail were flooded, particularly at the Southern tip of the lake. All in all a great place to take the family.

Easy trail with beautiful views of the river. We took the dogs and they did just fine with the terrain. This would be a fine trail to take small children on.

I’ve hiked this trail a few times over the years. It’s a great 45 minute hike just to keep your hiking legs in shape during the off-season or trainer for an upcoming trip. I’ve always noticed trail work is needed pretty bad on the back portion heading back towards Morehead State University. The trail and lake views are great. I’ve decided to hike this one more often.

easy trail but very muddy.

Very nice trail (I hiked all four), wooded and secluded feeling even though there are houses all around. Good variety of landscape as well. Saw a deer and four other hikers. However, bad day to hike as there were crews of workers with leaf blowers and building crew nearby. It was like hiking in a construction site. Will have to go back again sometime.

Rut caused by mountain bikes makes walking a little difficult on what would otherwise be a nice, pleasant, flat hike with a pretty river view.

Great scenery! Rugged, could use better blazes, took six hours to hike from Angel Windows to Rock Bridge parking lot. Overall a great day in the forest.

It’s nice if you don’t mind the fish hooks at the start and then some of the path can be hard to get around due to trees, bridges out (fixed now), and teens necking on occasion. I’ve gone a few times and just sat on the pier and looked at the ducks. Great for a moment alone, not a huge trail, but the hill going up the the cars is killer lol

Good walking trail I’d call it easy other than footing in some places . Great little fall walk great for kids .

If you take the trail just around the lake, it is very pretty but not a well-maintained trail. You will get a climbing workout going over and under downed trees. But’s it’s a nice little hike if you are in the area. I agree with another hiker that there is better hiking nearby at Carter Caves and Daniel Boone National Forest.

Love this trail. It's within walking distance of my house. It's lovely in the cooler months, not a lot of traffic during the week.

Nice easy trail with a perfect view of the lake.

A nice walk if you cannot get out of the city arena. I enjoyed the lake views and the very clean well kept trail. Surrounded by residents, but that is clear from the map. I went on an October Monday, but I can imagine it gets busy on the weekends and in the summer. Nice option if you love close by.

This trail is nice for a stroll along the lake. You have to step over a couple trees that have fallen. But it's kept up enough. I enjoyed the view of the hills around the lake and the marina.

Good urban hike that is close to home.

Great trail, well maintained and marked. Beautiful scenery, love the rocks and cliffs.

As some indicated, the trail is longer than pictured in the map on this site. It is over 5 miles if you follow all the markings. There are yellow arrows (clockwise) and red arrows (counterclockwise). The trails are pretty well marked, although some intersections are a little tricky. The trail was in very good shape and very clean. There is limited parking on the side of commerce road. There is a little gravel patch close to the 2nd trailhead which works pretty well for 3 or 4 vehicles. Otherwise park on the grass along commerce road. Parking at the end of commerce road, near the last trailhead is very limited and extremely tight. The trail has some very entertaining spots for mountain biking. I am 58 years old and probably an average mountain biker. There are a good number of technical areas and tight trails running along steep banks. Because of the leaves this time of year, I had to get off my bike 3 or 4 times because I didnt trust traction on steep climbs or drops. If you are using red arrows (counterclockwise) you will need to climb the earth dam. You can go straight up or cut diagonally upward along the dam. I have never done this before. Overall, a fun, entertaining trail for bkiing with some good challenges, open runs, nice views of creeks and small lake. .

Went on a cool, crisp October morning and it was so beautiful walking around the lake. I’ve added pictures for reference. Trail is easy, partly paved, rocks and dirt. Sunny in some areas and shaded in others. It is a great mix! Well marked and no issues at all navigating.
