First of all, the pin is in the wrong spot on the map. The trail head is on up hwy 9 to the county line take a left on county rd 132 which is Winona scenic drive, go about 4 miles take a left on county rd 179(first rd to the left) then about 300 feet on the left trailhead is marked and there is parking.
Now with all that said, the trail needs some work. There are 2 loops that make up this trek.
The upper loop is marked pretty good ands is a little more strenuous with more vertical climbs and some pretty go washouts on the bottom section of the loop (which makes up the top of the lower loop). Someone has done some work on this section and is blazed pretty well.
The lower section is not as strenuous as the upper loop as it flattens out down around to the north fork of the saline . You use a lot of forest roads on this section and they are not blazed at all, and there are numerous spurs. It would have been even more difficult if i had not had a map and knew the basic shape of the loop. This section needs some work.
If you like a lot of creek crossings you will like this trail, no major waterfalls, but the creeks and the rock formations are beautiful and well worth the effort.
Did both the loops doing the middle section twice to make it like a figure 8.
I recorded the track but when i finished and thought i stopped recording it did not. So i wont put it on the site as it will mess with the statistics. You can find a map of this trail on the Web.

Personally, I like this trail more than the Devil's Den self guided trail. The trail is wider, more airy with plenty of light. I would not recommend walking up the trail to the overlook during this season, since the view was entirely covered by trees. I hiked up to the yellow rock bluff early in the morning at around 6.30 AM, since a lot of reviews mentioned it would get crowded on weekends. The fog hadn't lifted and the view was breathtaking ! Overall, this was a really good hike for me.

Agree with all. For those of in moderate shape, this a good build up trail. (like me) If you have hiked ,at all ,on any state park or national trail, you somtimes wish to hear civilization nearby...this trail fits this. So, takes work to complete, but even sweeter when you can walk, run, or cycle in super hot weather or moderately cold.

Since I lived in area and purchased 150 dollar Gortex hiking boots, I was ready for adventure. The scenery was relaxing, but the switches in angles of the trail , slightly wet trail, and and close edges made me watch my feet and ankles more. In the summer, pls carry lots of mosquito repellant and, of course, water. Though I did not complete the entire trail, I like this trail because as you move deeper, you have more of a forest , than a state park trail ambience. (I am not a dusk or evening hiker).

ON HOT DAYS, PLENTY OF WATER. BABIES AND THE GRANDS parents. This is the closest I will get to rock climbing. Yes, for me, for the last quarter, I felt like I was rock climbing. I prayed that I would not fall. Oddly, over a few years tiime, I have returned to complete two more times. Seductively beckoning, but since I returned safely and sane. I no longer am seduced by call of the wild.
