Great trail for mountain biking or hiking. about 800 ft of elevation change so be ready for a good work out. It has several switchbacks and you cross over 3 or 4 streams. I would recommend this trail to anyone and I ride it atleast twice a wk.

Hiked this trail on a June morning. It began raining during the hike and made the trail very slippery. Overall though it was very enjoyable with amazing views.

I ran the Red loop the first day and the blue loop the next. Convenient to have a bathroom available at Trailhead One, where red starts. Red has a few advanced off-shoots of the trail that may have too many loose rocks for runners, but I liked it, and I'm sure bikers would enjoy the challenge. Blue loop is about a half mile longer, seemed to have more slope (though neither is severe), and had a couple of overlooks and a potential waterfall (no water when I ran in July), and a few cuts across power line right-of-ways that the red didn't have, otherwise, they were both mainly trails through wooded areas. Both trails crossed creek beds in a few places but were dry for my run despite fairly heavy rain previous day. After blue loop, be sure to cool your feet off in the River while you relax and watch the fly fishermen. Both runs were very enjoyable...especially for a Louisiana delta boy who hungers for non-flat terrain! If you want an asphalt "trail" to run, try the Table Rock Lakeshore trail just across the highway.

Combined this trail with part of the Wilderness Trail and the Opossum Trail.. making for a beautiful summer evening hike. I would recommend pants for the 1000 Steps trail as the lower portion of the trail is a bit overgrown. View from the shelter at the top of the steps was the highlight.

Lone Spring Trail

Started my hike midway up Big Sugar Creek Trail and used Connector Trail 6 to reach Lone Spring Trail and camped at a designated campsite on Lone Spring Trail. Trails were maintained fairly well but did have a few downed trees on the pathway with the largest one at about knee height. Thus the downed trees were not an issue. The trails I hiked cut through heavily wooded areas allowing many opportunities to see wildlife. I was able to see 4 deer, a possum, and a fox although they did not want their picture taken. For those people who like hiking near creeks, streams, and other water features you should know all the creek beds I passed were completely dry. This was the only disappointment I had. At one point on Lone Spring Trail there was a natural spring which feed a small pool of water a couple inches high. Overall this hike is excellent and I would recommend that you try this trail and decide for yourself if you like it.
