Beautiful, well marked hike. Thoroughly enjoyed the Hemlock Trail portion the best.

Great small hike for family! Took about an hour - pretty steep going up and down mountain but not too long. Would come back in a heartbeat!

Trail is becoming overgrown in July 2017. Had to beat back brambles and other jagger bushes with a stick before taking steps. Not a very pleasant hike in shorts.

Possibly nicer in early spring or fall when there is less vegetation, but in summer time this trail is an exercise in frustration.

This is a great loop hike. Varying scenery. Bobcat trail can be steep at parts and a little rough but the others are very nice and comfortable to walk on.

If you're using a state park map:
It starts at the #4 boat launch
Briefly north and turn left before the bridge to get on Hemlock Trail.
Left/West on Buck Run Road.
Right turn onto Bobcat Trail.
Bobcat Trail to a left on Beltz Trail/Road.
Left onto Martz Trail
Right onto Pump House Trail
Go past the 1st right for Tram Road Trail (wrong direction).
Take the 2nd right onto Tram Road Trail
Tram Road Trail along the river
Right across the bridge at the Teaching Station
Stay on this unnamed trail/road until the big parking area and beach.
Then you can find your way to Copper Kettle Trail along the water and turn left/north to the #4 boat launch.

Made a loop by following the ramble run trail to the painter rock trail. Ramble run was very scenic crossing the stream more times than I can count, would recommend boots for this trail. Painted rock trail was mostly overgrown and very steep uphill for the first half.
