Great trail. There's a smaller (yellow) loop and the larger (red) loop. The larger probably only being about 1 - 1.5 miles long. Lined with pine trees and pretty wide in most places. It also connects to a paved bike trail that goes a ways in either direction.

My friend and I hiked this trail this morning and it was beautiful! We only passed a few bikers and walkers along the way so for the most part, we were alone. It was so quiet and peaceful! The water was absolutely gorgeous. This was the first trail we've done and we we didn't struggle at all. There are definitely some steeper parts but we got through it without a problem. Can't wait to come back!!

I have only ever visited the park since the trail markers have been redone and they are extremely easy to follow and well marked. The various lengths of the trails make the park great for all skill levels and abilities. Honestly, I love coming here! The trails are narrow, but very serene. You'll see a bit of wildlife (squirrels, chipmunks, deer, birds). Great for a casual stroll or can be made into a pretty great workout. Two-thumbs up!

The beginning of the trail was very well marked, about 4 intersections in the signs disappeared and I got lost. Loved the trails and the hills but they need to go back and make sure all of the markers are put back up.

This was the first backpacking trip my husband and I have ever been on. It was great and close to home. The first day we set out to blind lake camp ground and made great time. From marker 1 to 12 it was about 7 miles. Lots of lakes and marshes. I would recommend camp site 2 since it was right on the water and had beautiful views. The only down side to this camp ground was the well was not close to the restroom. Even though the site said no fires I called the DNR and they said that is fine. The second day we knew rain was coming so we took the shortest route to the crooked lake camp ground which was about 5 miles. This camp ground was nice, but cars and trailers where allowed. Over all not very scenic but a great beginner trail. I would defiantly go back again.

Have done this a year ago very confusing as it looks like three paths intertwine.

Short trails. Many times the trail became impassable except for the one main trail which makes it a very short walk. Beautiful trail system though and well mapped.
