Short trail that is easy to complete. Good trail if you want to get out, but only have a small amount of time. Nice views of the lake from Bald Knob.

Great intermediate trail with lots of shade, wide trails and not alot of roots, rocks nor washes. lake is at a distance a majority of the trail. between the loops (as shown on the map) there is a high water bypass and a closed trail- not on the map nor well marked returning. cabin 1-8 / 8-12 loop (north most) has a 150 yard climb if you go east (right) first. much more gradual west (left) first. parking is limited which I imagine limits traffic on this otherwise dandy Norris State Park Trail. Good job park people!

It was an ok hike. Not very scenic. But was easily done with a nine year old.

Great trail. Moderate elevation. Excellent scenery!

Good trail all around. I only did the day loop trail. Muddy in a lot of places. Views of the lake are nice, but don't expect to catch your breath on them. Moderately taxing. If you have three or four hours to kill, it's a good place to get some air and some nature time. Highly recommend for convenience and straightforwardness, if that makes sense. Can a trail even be straightforward? Idk. Just try it.

Nice short hike if you want to get outdoors, but nothing that great about it.
