Really nice trail! Great views of the reservoir right next to it and was empty. Took the eagle trail to get a little closer to the lake and the Maple Highlands trail back. Very nice hike.

I thought this loop was really nice, especially when you go through the pine tree grove. It was a little muddy, but the trail was well marked and easy to follow. my dog also thought it was great!

i just moved by the trail and have frequented it as a Jogger, a bicyclist, and just walking. it is decent asphalt. not crowded, ohio swampy scenary and with the amish using it horse manure quite frequent.

I attempted this route but the markings are terrible. The blazes are white with (I would assume) the letter of the trail. But regardless the trail your on, it seems E is the only blaze you get. Why not use colored blazes.
Markings and blazes aside, I loved this location and now that I've somewhat figured it out, I will return again and again.

nice place to run

Very easy trail. This was a nice way to wind down after doing some of the more challenging trails in CVNP. Some nice bridges and boardwalk along the way.

Awesome trails with scenic views of a river. Make sure you don't take the oak leaf connector or you will miss all of the best parts.

More than likely won't see a sole on it and is a very relaxing walk.

Just went again today! great for a family walk with the dogs, not very busy at all this time of year. The water is down so you can walk the shore line on the back half.

We did the entire perimeter loop for 12.8 miles. There were really good stretches of this hike but the two sections where you have to walk on the road to get around the lake were kind of a bummer. Not at all strenuous, beyond just a longer distance. I enjoyed it but there are much better day hikes elsewhere and prob wouldn’t come back. Trail was well marked and maintained.

After a nice rain the waterfall was great! Made for some great pictures! Wear boots and check out the caves along the railroad tracks :)

Nice flat trail - would be great for a 20 mile bike ride with a stop for lunch in the middle. The small detour for the Coke Ovens in Leetonia is definitely worth it.

Beautiful trail, intertwined with other trails too. The beginning leads you too a lazily flowing creek which stems from a really nice big pond. there's meadow, forest, and some nice hills. definitely would recommend.

Nice view in the forest. But need better maintenance.

Great scenic trail that consists of 2 waterfalls at opposite ends of the trail. Dirt surfaces with some rocks and roots of trees along the path. A few descents can be taken down to the base of falls for some great photo ops. Not a lot of wildlife but saw some chipmunks and a variety of birds. Decent amount of overhead canopy but weather wasn't a factor except for being a bit muddy. Overall a great outing.

Had one of my best hiking experiences here. Yesterday was my first time there and I cannot wait to go back. So serene and the trails were definitely moderate which I enjoy. I only did 6 miles but it was great! I highly recommend this place for some great spiritual hiking.

Great place to take a dog for a walk! Make sure to pick up after them. Absolutely lovely views of the lake. Wish there were more trash receptacles for pet waste.

great hike. some challenging hills.

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed this hike. The trail was well maintained, and we enjoyed the scenery- lake, 2 waterfalls, limestone cliffs, a beautiful visitor’s center and the pioneer village. We encountered just a few hikers/runners, and most of the trail was away from road noise. The hills were moderate and the trail was easy to navigate. We decided we would like to do this loop again in the spring and enjoy the wild flowers.

Great views. Not a very well marked trail! Trailhead not great. Keep your phone and gps handy!

Very good hike, beautiful views and long hike. Would definitely recommend and go again.

Great trails close to the city. Markings aren’t great and they are not very well maintained but a lot of mileage possible.

Such a fun time! Although, it's definitely not a beginners trail.

#1. Make sure to wear pants.
#2. Make sure put on mosquito repellent, aka Deep Forest OFF.
#3. Make sure to reread number one and number two.

Follow those guidelines, and you won't get poison ivy, bit up, or scratched up by thorns and such.

Overall, it is a beautiful trail. If they could patrol it at all, it would surely help prevent all the litter, spray paint arsonists, and other illegal activities that young people do there. Out of all the Ohio Parks I've visited this year, this was by far the most littered park/wildlife area ever. So sad. It could be cleaned up and turned into a high tourist area.

great hike. Too close to highway though.

Very good hike and very pretty. The only bad thing is how close it is to the highway.
