Nice day hike with some beautiful lake views. Easy-moderate with a few moderate climbs. Enjoyable day hike. With the shelters, this could easily serve as a training shakedown hike for potential longer trips.

Great trail for a day hike. Montgomery Bell is just one of gems we have in our state park system. One warning, there lots of leaves of three plants with parts having narrow trails so proceed cautiously.

Great day hike trail or over night trip. Also a great trail to train younger hikers or people new to backpacking. The lake seen while walking the trail offers some additional fishing possibilities to increase the activities which can be done during an overnight packing trip.

I hiked this Nov. 2013 with a friend. We stayed at one of the shelters and thoroughly enjoyed the hike. It has good scenery as well as a couple of good elevation changes. You can check out what I wrote at http://faithdeblistered.wordpress.com/2013/12/03/montgomery-bell-trail-loop/

I like Montgomery Bell loop because it is close to the house, you can knock out 9 miles before lunch and still have the day ahead of you. This was my first trip with trekking poles, love'm. The trails get slippery in the winter because of dead leaves, wet trails, ice covered trails, etc. The trekking poles made the hike quicker and more stable.

Excellent trail! The trail is well maintained and blazed! Would be a great trail for a beginner fairly moderate trail with just enough elevation changes. This will be one to hike again!

My boys and I hiked out and platform camped for the first time. We had a great time. We did not see much of the trail because we did the majority of our hiking at night. We still enjoyedcamping out. There was plenty of fallen trees for fire wood and the platform was well maintained as far as we could tell. The camp was close to some water so we listened to wildlife most of the night hoping it wasn't a bear.

Overall, it was not about the hike. It was about sleeping in a 3-walled shelter for the first time!
