Definitely a very nice trail, but my god does it get crowded. This is being written during the first re-opening phases during COVID-19, so if you are looking for a weekend hike, I’d probably avoid this one for now. Paths get very crowded in some of the most difficult areas to pass (on the bluffs). This is really the only reason that I’m giving it a 4. Nice uphills, gets a little confusing up by Balanced Rock, so you may need to make a DYI trail, as you can see from the back and forths in my route.

Great easy hike! Wide paths, scenic views, variety of views from prairie to woods to the lake.

Tons of climbing and descending on slippery rocks. Awesome challenge. Also had trouble finding the right trail near the Balance Rock so I had to backtrack.

Great short hike! Good workout uphill on the first section. Beautiful walk along the water on the way back!

This was a good trial but there are not trash cans for dog waste or trash in general so be prepared.

For some reason the app only recorded . 2 miles, maybe because of service, but it was more like 3 miles

Hard to navigate in some spaces; Ishnala trail is close to interstate Was fun to walk out on frozen lake

Beautiful views! Easy to hike and navigate. Markers are well displayed and the trail itself is wide. Also a great place to take beautiful pictures. At the end of the trail there's a gift shop and restaurant if you become hungry or want a suevinuer. Definitely going to do another trip for the more advanced trails.

2/23/2020 East Bluff Woods Trail was good to hike. There was a clear trail through the snow and since the trail isn't too steep, there wasn't much of a fall risk. Top of east bluff varied. Some areas were wet and slushy, others icy and some in good condition. East bluff scenic trail was more slippery and icy.

Great trail. Not super challenging, but does get the HR up. Stunning views of Devil's Lake and rocky outcroppings.

Most leaves have fallen already but it was still pretty. Got a little muddy in some spots, otherwise trails were good.

Excellent trail for a day hike. Trail is well marked and well travelled. Steps are a big benefit for an old fart like me. Great views from the top. Do be careful though, while we were there a paramedic team had to respond to someone, not sure if it was a hiker of a climber that went down the face. Great face for climbing if you’re into that.

Great trail of all sorts of different boulders and rock formations. Lots of great people to meet along the way.

Dog-friendly trail that has multiple points of interest and great views along the way. There was a wonderful breeze along the bluff. I did lose the CCC trail at one point coming from the East Bluff Trail and had to turn around, but I was able to make it to the potholes eventually. Definitely would recommend!

Great loop hike with lots of benches, beautiful lookout and picnic spots. Paved trail throughout. Pretty steep up to ridge. I would definitely start with the uphill section first given the better view along the water (view of a hill rather than a boat house on the lower section) but you really can’t go wrong. As of Oct 6 mostly green leaves; very little color.

Loop with east bluff, balanced rock, potholes and CCC.

Beautiful easy trail. Mostly paved or well graveled. Nice scenery
