Blue Spring trail

The hike is a destination hike, not taken for general beauty, though in the spring you can catch wildflowers in bloom, and in the fall, the fall color can be attractive. The uniqueness of the color of the spring's water is the draw. It is a vivid deep blue.

Powder Mill is nice primitive campsite right on the banks of the river. Nicer restrooms than you generally have for this primitive a camp site. Blue Spring, eight largest in the state is a short 1 mile hike one way. For primitive tent camping this is a nice site. Many, many things to do in the area. Great canoeing, historic sites, hikes galore. And yes, the water is that blue.

Pulltite is larger and better than most NF campgrounds in the area. Cheaper than state park campgrounds. Nice area.

I'm new to hiking so these trails were challenging but fun. The mountain bikers were very friendly. Is definitely do this trail again if I lived nearby.

This trail is NOT FOR MOUNTAIN BIKING in my opinion. the trails is not well maintained from the start there are trees that have fallen over and they cut the trunks to step over but clearly not to ride over. it is probably good for some hiking and that is why I gave it 3 stars.

I have camped at Montauk a half a dozen times either for the purpose of coming here to trout fish, or as a staging ground with boy scouts to canoe and do other high adventure activities. beautiful area, great camp sites, fantastic fishing, trails and so much to do in the area.

Hickory Grove Trail: Burr Oak Woods Conservation Area

My husband and I decided to do this trail on a day we did not have the kids with us. We liked it a lot. Though it is not a loop it is a straight 1.5 miles and then you have to do it backwards 1.5 miles. It was well shaded on the 90 degree day we went. Take your water bottles!! All gravel no dogs and no bikes. We did this trail in about 55 minutes.
