Picked West Face Trail down from Cadillac (3 hrs) after hiking up on north ridge trail (3 hrs.). This was thought to be a shorter trail, mod difficulty and w/ bus stop at trail end. Wife and I sixty somethings active walkers but not prepared for difficulty of West decent. Tremendous feeling of accomplishment and exhaustion after this decent haha. In addition to the usual precautions and those mentioned by the other contributors, start this hike with minimum 3 hrs daylight or good luck searching for blue markers in the dark. West light fades fast behind nearby mtn!

A nice little park with a fun jaunt along planks through grasses, woods, and swamp. Be careful, it is easy to get your feet wet. Beaver activity has flooded some of the trails. Easily did the walk with my dog, but he certainly got his paws muddied. I was nagged by bugs and did the trail at a fast pass to get away from them.

Great trek through the woods - nice ups and downs - the trails were marked very well.

Easy to follow trail system with well-marked intersections. The trails are 10-foot wide, dirt track with some root outcroppings so be careful when you walk. Easy to get tripped up.

Went in the late summer, so the water level was fairly low. It was still beautiful and a super fast hike for me and two young boys. The rocks can be challenging when wet.

Was in town waiting for a flight. Trail was so great I did it twice. Very pretty. Felt very safe due to activity on the trail.

Loved this trail. Went with my 63-year-old mother and took my husky and we had a great time. The West Side is definitely more work (bogwalk and rocks here) and the east side is a breeze with wonderful photo ops so plan which aide you want to tackle first. Total it probably took us almost two hours at a nice stroll with lots of stops for pictures. It was a rainy day so the few portions of rock walking and bogwalk were a tad slippery - I would recommend aiming for a dryer day. It was foggy but we have excellent pictures and it actually gave Jordan Pond a beautifully unique scene. I would absolutely do again and am very happy we took the time to do this loop!
