It is the most remote state park in Michigan. A long, slow drive to get to the parking lot. Very quiet, peaceful. Bugs can be very bad in early July.

Bring your GPS. It’s easy to get off the main paths.

A great secluded challenging hike! you can break off the hike and go to the beach or stay on the trail.

This is a very nice trail, with little foot traffic. It has great views and is a peaceful place to walk or run.

they must have put up new markers recently. I was very impressed with the placement of maps along the trails. and the fall colors were gorgeous!

easy, well-maintained trail. I was very impressed with the markers and blazes. no way to get lost! beautiful fall colors.

Really nice trail ! Short but sweet. The lake is pretty much in view the whole time. A few hills , nothing that kills you .

Hiked with a fresh dusting of snow on the trail. Mixed with the fall colors it was a great little easy hike. Followed with lunch at Mt Shasta Resturant just down the road. Wow, what a find!!

This is gorgeous trail!! It was slightly challenging as there were a lot of steep inclines, and I was carrying a baby. The trail was very well labeled, and it's a great workout! Definitely a recommendation to other hikers, and I look forward to going back.

I definitely lost the trail way more than I expected, expecially since there are so many extra route to take, make sure to have a map! The veiws are nice but the path I took was very hilly and I ended up having to bush wack my way to another section of trail after getting lost. All in all a fun hike.

Not a hard trail and the view is incredible!

This was a very nice and easy paved trail. The viewing points for the waterfall were gorgeous. This is perfect for those people who want to see the falls in a quick and easy manner. We went on a Saturday around 4 in the afternoon and there were LOTS of people there. I was actually surprised how busy it was. Definitely take the 94 steps to the bottom to get closer to the falls. It is worth it!

Slightly hilly . Scenic view of Lake Michigan 2/3 the way through. Mostly woodlands with tree roots to navigate around, which I could see being slippery if wet. All in all a nice short trail.

Beautiful walk, can get hot with the sun shinning on the sand. Make sure to bring enough water. The lighthouse was awesome.

It’s hard but rewarding!!!

Great fun. Different loops so you can do as little or as much as you’d like. This trail takes you through varied landscapes and fauna.

Easily accessible and well groomed. Worth the views!

really beautiful scenery. more challenging of a hike for a beginner but very good to work on elevations and uneven terrain. mosquitoes were a little bad but not unbearable considering we didn't wear bug spray. a good hike. We messed up and missed the spot to get back on the trail and followed the road too lon g so our hike was only 3.6 miles.

Same thing the other guy said . Unless u bring scuba gear , your done . Other than that , nice trail .

I’ve passed by Maybury State Park more times then I could count but this is my first time actually going there.
The trail was good. Especially for me being 53 and out of shape. I wore a 20 lb rucksack while I was hiking and had my dog with me.
There are some decent rises and falls to the trail. Enough to make it challenging but not too challenging.
I recommend this trail highly.
Keep an eye on the trail because roots are prevalent and you need to watch out for them. Also there were some muddy spots but I didn’t mind.
Will be going back.

Went today and walked the whole thing barefoot. 55 degrees and cloudy were perfect conditions for this trail. Great cardio workout. Pure Michigan

This hike is a gem! Highly recommend recording the hike so you can see where you are on the map. The paths for this particular hike aren't marked well because it intersects with a number of other trails. Also recommend following John Metzler's great review, which talks you through the confusing parts. I was very grateful for his guidance! I will definitely be back! Also, I saw maybe a dozen or so bikers throughout the 8 miles. Every one of them was courteous and considerate. Yes, you need to keep your eyes out for them, but at least on this early fall day, we shared the trail with no issues.

the trail was beautiful and peaceful. For a Saturday it wasn't to busy and there wasn't a lot of people on the trail.

The good part of the trail was under construction so you couldn’t see anything. I’m sure it’s cool when it’s open
