Beautiful area that you wouldn't expect to have near downtown Akron. The trail is always busy but is mostly flat with the exception of some stairs you can choose to walk or bypass. I would rate it easy but worth the trip. There are lots of other trails in the same area so it's good for distance.

We've done the north loop, it was beautiful but pretty tough. Heavy rain can make the creek a little scary, but it's largely avoidable. the campgrounds are nice, especially having the access to water. Go early on weekends, the parking lot seems to fill up quickly.

Great trail to spend your day on. I most enjoy getting away from the crowds a few miles in and looking for plants and birds. the lake is fantastic at the far end, and there are lots of wonderful things to see along the way. It can be muddy in spots and sometimes the trail is nearly in the lake, but nothing too bad.

This is a nice, easy going trail. I hike here almost every weekday afternoon when I leave work. As a previous commenter stated, if you don’t care for dogs jumping, sniffing, and pooping this is not your trail. It is also heavily trafficked. Today I walked from the Indian Hill Church to the end and back and I passed several people and at least 15 dogs (all off leash). Nice little trail for my daily walk but if you are looking for a trail that’s not travelled as frequently and a little more of a challenge I would look elsewhere.

great hiking weather....45°

Very nice sloping trail that leads to the lake by way of the maple sugaring area. One of five areas in Ohio which was never clear cut. Huge trees and home to Barred Owls.

Really amazing trail. One of the best in hocking hill area. Beware of sharp cliffs. You can hear the water fall around the rim. Well marked but can be a bit tricky during rain.

us there went on a hike here at buckie trail. It was beautiful and very pretty. Even when there was snow on the ground the trail was still visible.

Only hiked it twice, but it was nice. Can't wait to see it in the spring.

Nice hike along a brook. Didn’t see anyone else on it.

Lovely views of the lake, plus a little more elevation than the furnace trail. It’s not very secluded.

today was my first time on this trail and I loved it! Challenging for me, but doable and beautiful!

Love it here!!!!

Really liked this trail. Pretty views. Lots of things to do other than hike.

Super easy hike, kids had fun, and has some pretty scenery.

It has some very pretty views.

I drove over 50 miles one way to get here and didn't even get to go hiking because the pull off where you park was full.

I appreciate all the directions and the instructions on this site

Watch out after a big rain! We got lost a few times because the mud washed away the trail.

Well maintained and marked. Nice wooded area walk.

Nice trail we went rock climbing too
Got off the trail a little. It was easy to find way back

Beautiful young forest and prairie with interesting historical signs along the Argonne Forest portion of the trail. I went with my dog in the early morning and no one else was on the trail. I was a little disappointed in the amount of trash that was littered in the small creek, took away from the beauty of it.

great for hiking, biking, and walking the dog. Beautiful

Been back there so many times. Beautiful, quiet, a peaceful place to think. Going off the trail to explore new areas is just as fun and staying on it. But be careful you dont accidentally wander onto the mountain biker trails. Almost got taken out a couple times by mistake!

Nice hike. Easy. There is a bald eagles nest you can see

Not all too great. Lots of garbage and broken toys/bikes throughout the trail. Doesn’t cover much land because of the switchbacks. Graffiti around in different areas too. Something new to try if you’ve not done it but I’ll be going someplace else in the future.
