Trail is much wider than other trails in the park because it is used for skiing in the winter. There is one overlook along the 2.5 mile loop. Trail is fairly flat with a few steep sections and some rocky and rooty sections of trail. The trail was not busy at all on the day we were there. …

This is an easy, mainly flat loop hike in the woods. Bring bug spray. I’ve hiked this three times in early June and there have always been some mucky sections. You get one nice overlook view. I consider it a way to add variety to daily walks more than a hike.

We did this hike in the AM before attempting to catch our boat to Kettle Falls (which was cancelled due to wind/storms). Overall - it was just an average hike. Little to no elevation gain. A number wet areas to navigate around. Lots of mushrooms. If you only have an hour or two - I would suggest hiking around the campground at Woodenfrog State Forest Campground a few miles down the road...we liked the hike there better (about the same length).…

We just had to get out and hike. Unfortunately, this park really doesn't offer much in hikes. It's best seen from a boat, canoe or kayak. We did see a beaver lodge and experienced the boreal forest.
