Perfect path for walking/ jogging. For etra miles you can add on Frenchmans Bar Trail. Another mostly flat paved trail.

Nice spot but can be crowded and attract the kind of people that play loud music, etc. I should try it sometime when it's not a weekend. Pleasant place to kayak too though not very big.

Did the 4.7 mile loop around the lake earlier today (Wife and girls 7 and 10). Started off clockwise from the parking lot with highest overlook. Definately a good decision as the first 3 miles was very rocky and a lot of climbing up and down big boulders but also several flat sandy paths. Not a scary or dangerous hike at all but be cautious at all times and wear proper footwear (no flip flops). Bring plenty of water and sunscreen. Took just over 2 1/2 hours but we also took it easy and enjoyed the nice views where possible. Final 1.7 miles (or so) was totally flat and straight out.

It’s an ok trail. Not super scenic but here and there. Some sketchy areas and a lot is walking on the road. Did not really enjoy it with the kids.

Good easy trail for a nice jog. It can get pretty flooded when it rains.

Trail is narrow in places snd traffic especially near the trail head but well worth it. We hiked to lodge creek and the cedar stands and wildflowers were beautiful.

Couldn’t have been happier with this trail this morning. Since parks recently opened due to corona, I expected this trail to be packed especially having a hard time finding a parking spot, but I was wrong! Perhaps because this trial is moderate it incline and skill level, kept it clear. And of course a bit muddy since we’ve had so much rain- but not hazardous. Absolutely loved it. Wide enough to share the trails walking with my dog or, with a friend side by side.

Fun trail, but some sections very very muddy. Very pretty along lake. Stone house at end of trail was beautiful. Check for ticks when done.

I wasn’t sure where AllTrails wanted me to start hiking, so after entering the park, I parked at the Cottonwoods campground. There is a meandering nature trail in that area which is kind of fun if you’re a birder. I walked south along the paved park road and my AllTrails app showed that I was on the right track. AllTrails had me walk down the road until I reached Wiper Cove, a picnic/fishing area. I walked along the shoreline there and found a little grove of trees with a number of songbirds, which was nice. Then I turned around and walked back to my car. I would not recommend this as a hike - it’s a walk along a paved road and through the occasional parking lot - especially because there’s a hefty fee just to enter the park. Fortunately, I own a 2-year state park pass and didn’t have to pay to get in.

This was a great trail but not really hiking in my opinion. It was a rocky road but easy to follow and leads right down to the water. The app didn’t show the body of water and the road itself had a lot of side roads. Just stay straight and you’ll be fine! Great walk in the woods! Not a lot of parking on side of the road.

Did the loop in 2.5 hrs. So beautiful. Very fun trail. Recommend hiking shoes, lots of tree roots spring up. Got there at 900ish left before noon, was not crowded at all on the trail but by 1030 looked like all the beach spots were occupied. Lots of shade.

The lake loop no longer allows bikes. Went today and it had to many people on it to bike anyway but it was posted no bikes. But good walking trail, moderate not easy. The bathrooms there are all closed fyi.

Moderate traffic on the footpath but distance still able to be respected and maintained except near beach access areas. Easy stroll for all with level ground, stroller and wheelchair accessible.

Tried to go today but parking was full, and open only to El Dorado residents if there had been parking.

The part of the trail that we saw was really nice. We got through about 60% of it using the map from this app, but after that point, the map was definitely wrong and we couldn’t find the trail markings anymore. We ended just up finding the main road and walking back to our car after that, which was kind of a bummer. If hiking this trail, I’d recommend you check a map in person or use another app (if that exists).

Love this area! Trails are pretty well marked and easy-going—we like both the grassy part filled with wildflowers and the shaded woods. The ruins are very cool and add some extra flavor to the walk. The lake itself is gorgeous—definitely recommend kayaking there if you can! A few bugs and muddy in some places.

Definitely recommend this trail for beginners who are moderate fit. This is not the trail for extremely out of shape people. If climbing a couple of flights of stairs is difficult for you wait until that challenge isn’t daunting before experiencing the multiple elevation changes on this two mile hike. For more fit hiking newbies this is a great trail with other easy to moderate hikes in the same park. Enjoy!

if there was a hiking trail I didn’t find it. I’m very familiar with the River and it’s gorgeous.

Beautiful walk along the river.

Great fun, we took our 11, 10 and 8 year old’s and they loved it. Make sure you go at low tide so you are able to enjoy the caves. Lots of tide pools at low tide as well.

Good shade. A good loop for kids. Packed Gravel

Nice place for an easy hike. Currently crowed on the weekends in the mornings and over half the people there weren't wearing masks or staying socially distant. Would recommend going in the afternoon or during the week.

Took the pups on a walk here while we were in the area and it was a super pleasant walk. Not super crowded on a cloudy Sunday late morning. Lots of birds in the area. Trails were wide and well-maintained, easy to social distance when needed.

This is a very nice trail. I stated very early in the morning and it was very quiet. . The trails is beautifully maintained . it is paved and runs along the river. There is plenty of shade . There are lots of trees and magnificent spots to stops and take picture. I highly recommend this trail.

not a trail to hike. purely a water trail. no really safe for dogs. current is swift and you'll be dealing with a lot of fishing boats. location is very sketchy so have a plan for protecting valuables. a bit difficult to get to, so be careful. tight curves, no shoulder, etc. it's very pretty, but if you dropped in in Frankfort KY, youd get the same views and it's a pretty view as well. water levels shoot up very high after rain so look into this before going.
