We hike this almost every year, and this year was the most challenging. There is erosion on many "paths", with visible tree roots. A hiking stick would be helpful as well as good hiking shoes. I wouldn't advise doing after a rain to avoid slippery rock area. The challenge makes this hike more exciting tho and the views are spectacular... More

This is a somewhat difficult trail that goes up and down hills through the forest but offeres some great views along with the exercise. Not for seniors or anyone with knee problems.

This trail is rated difficult but it was not that bad. The biggest issue is all the rocks and roots that constitute the trail in places. Watch your step! Once down at lake level there are places you can get down to the water and drink in the views. Limestone caves and towering cliffs make for cool views. It was... More

This trail is something else. When the sign says difficult, believe it! Actually my wife and I did enjoy it even though it was rocky, root laden and we were hustling to beat an approaching storm! I'm 67 with a knee replacement and I made it. Took us about an hour but there are places that are extremely difficult.

Love the trail, but the tower is closed currently and needs some repair. You can still hike the beautiful trail. It takes about an hour.

This is the signature hike at one of the great state parks in America. You start at the top of the bluff and hike down, along the lake, below the bluffs, before climbing back up. In only about 2 miles you go through several small eco-systems, shifting from hardwoods to cedars, sun to shade, dry to wet.. The hike includes... More

This trail is rated 'difficult' and in two words I'll sum up why. "Tree roots". There's some elevation change which is moderate, and some rock climbing and stair climbing, which is also moderate, but the tree roots border on obnoxious. If you can get past that, there's some really cool limestone outcrops, and some breathtaking cliffs that you will skirt... More

The trail skirts along the shore at the base of the limestone cliffs that jut out of the northwestern part of the peninsula. Very beautiful.

The scenery may be great during the winter, but during our summer hike, you could barely see the water because the tree were so thick. The only reason the trail is rated difficult is that you are walking on rocks and tree roots the entire time. You need to watch where you are stepping all the time. The best part... More

This is a great hike with some diverse topography. I consider it moderate but have taken 4 year olds and up who have enjoyed the entire walk. Warning: if you freak about rock walls over your head that could crumble down on you, you will have to buck up or turn around and go back the way you came. You... More
