Prettyboy Reservoir Hemlock Trail

Gorgeous! Took the trail along the river with our dog and my 2 year-old. The little one managed plenty of time on foot, I easily carried her in a back carrier when she needed a break, and the dog had the time of her life. Lots of sceneic access spots to the water along the way.

Some friends and I actually picked up the canal just over the Ohio line and hiked the towpath all the way to DC. we all had a great time there was times when we would. Along the trail and other times we really had the home to make up for lost time and bad weather. all in all it took us about two weeks plus or minus a few days to make the entire trip and we are planning on doing it again in the near future with our children.

Can someone please direct me to where I could find a trail map of this park? It doesn't seem like it's clearly marked anywhere.

An easy walk, but not very exciting. A couple of different loops through the woods near the cabins and the lake

The Blue trail was a great hike. Trail was well maintained and marked clearly. Rocky in some places flat in other areas. Down and up good work out a little over 2 hours and 775 calories!
