Much of the trail was flooded or washed out yesterday. There was a huge Eastern timber rattlensnake inches from the trail. Thank God we were hiking and not running. Taking those factors into account, there was only 1 tiny vista. The one positive would be that there are real bathrooms near the visitor center.

1st 2 miles are hardest with a moderately hard uphill hike. only real view is at the top at the Vista, the rest is all forest. trail marked well, some spots narrow with overgrown vegetation. Rest of hike was moderately easy with just a shorter uphill portion before going back down hill to trailhead.

Steep, somewhat rocky hike at the beginning through a beautiful ravine, followed by a spectacular view of the valley from the top. We did the shorter loop and hiked back down to the road after reaching the top, but it was enjoyable and we might be back to do the longer loop soon!

This is a nice hike through the woods with one little spot that has a food view. Much of the western leg of the loop was very wet!
Note that the Park staff have moved the main entrance to the far eastern point of the loop; you'll see the parking area and sign on your right as you drive into the park.

Another way to access this trail is to follow the dirt road at the parking area. Look for the pond on your right, the trailhead will be on your left. A 1.5 gradual ascent will bring you to the scenic overlook.

A nice 8 mile long loop. It took me a little over 2 1/2 hours to complete the whole loop. There are two trail-heads, one located near the Corp Of Engineers Center /Stephenhouse Road (The one I used) and another in the Ives Run Campground/ Mid-state Trail. If your not in the mood to climb up a steep grade right at the get go, I'd suggest using the last of the two trail-heads as the starting point. It also seems to have a longer, but easier accent from this side. (I was walking downhill at this point, so maybe it just seemed easier)

Overall, it was a very nice way to spend an afternoon.
