The trail is still open. On the positive side, I came across no one while hiking, which is a huge plus given covid-19 precautions. On the down side, this trail was extremely overgrown and muddy. I was up to my ankles in mud at some points.

Heavily wooded with beautiful views of the lake, couldn’t find parking but the area is pretty rural so we parked on the side of the road.

Nice views of the rocks & neat cave you can walk into

Great trail that leads to a wonderful view. A few hills, but not to challenging. Shaded majority of the way. And we saw LOTS of cute little frogs along the trail!

Great trail, but wear your hiking boots—it was really muddy the day we went. We had fun skipping rocks in the river!

This was a pleasant surprise—not a terribly long, so I wouldn’t call it a great workout, but it was serene and there was plenty to look at. We even collected ramps here . The trails aren’t well marked, but it was nice to explore.

Super rocky and muddy but extremely beautiful and a lot of really beautiful scenery! A lot of water and rivers to walk across and walk through which I really loved. A lot of deer and animals! It is really great walking trails!!

2 kids and me. Fun creek play on our way back from the falls.

Beautiful! We left from Hope School house so had to utilize 2 maps and leaving from that parking area added about 4 miles to the trail. At times confusing because the trail would split off in areas not marked on the map but we figured it out. Took the trail counter clockwise. Camp 1 had water, we decided to push on to Camp 2, also had water but was further according to our GPS than the map states. Camps were clean and clear. Our site had a fire ring and someone left big logs of wood which was handy. 2nd day continued the loop and there is a big hill that almost kicked our butts, felt like we would never reach the top. A nice cave along the trail to drop packs, eat and cool off. watch your footing as the trail is about a foot wide with steep drop offs inches from the trail. Leaving camp 2 the trail had a lot of muddy areas for about a mile, easily crossed or able to go around. We took the kids ages 12 and 18 and they seemed to handle it well. We ran into hikers who stated Camp 1 ran out of water, so be prepared to carry all you need, you never know. In the end we clocked 18 miles. Far greater than the map states. Hoping in a few weeks to return and do the other loops. This was my first ever backpacking trip, unfortunately I did not prep but it was easily completed with only a few spots where I had difficulty. Mostly the hill leading in, hill before camp2 and the BIG hill about 2 miles out of camp 2.

Trail is in decent shape with only a few muddy areas. You can connect Worden's Ledges with this loop, which I recommend. You won't have this one to yourself.

always gorgeous. well fed friendly squirrels and huge variety of birds, water fowl and birds of prey. very flat.

The Southgate side of the park is very beautiful, scenic, and peaceful. we saw a large family of geese with their babies:)) I would not recommend a stroller on this path since the gravel is very large, there is little to no path signage, and there are several dramatic changes in elevation... We had a great hike with a bit of adventure!

The stretches of trail along the reservoir are very nice, but I was not comfortable walking the road stretches with my stroller and child ... we turned around after the second stretch of road where big trucks were coming past. Maybe it's a better stretch for bikers, I would not recommend for strollers. I also heard guns going off in nearby public hunting areas, so overall not a family friendly trial currently.

Love coming here for a quick walk with my dog. Easy loop, with just enough incline to get a bit of a workout! Can get a bit muddy in spots and slippery after rain.

Nice place. However looks like it has not been maintained in years. trails cut off from trees and decks destroyed. graffiti on trees.

Great place with many awesome things to see (ie: natural rock bridge, natural rock arch, 2 waterfalls, many newly built foot bridges over streams, the river, rock formations, etc.) Only knock on this place is the 1/2 mile walk up the gravel road from the new parking (which is very small) to the old parking lot where the trails actually begin.
