Zaleski State Forest Day Loop Trail

First Backpacking trip with my 12 year old daughter. Was a little tough for a beginner but we had a great hike even though it took more out of us then expected. The trails are marked very well. With all the leaves on the ground and hiking in and out in the dark we still never lost the trail. We never saw the marker for moonville tunnel unfortunately so it might be down. Definitely plan to go back next fall and get to moonville.

Nice trail. Not very long. Wide paths... It is a little too busy with people. I enjoyed the pine tree section the best.

Also did Chippewa trail. Very nice trail. A couple of nice sized elevations to climb. Many more hills than Pheasant Run.

Did both trails for a nice 3.3 mile hike.

Archers Fork Trail

I'm going to start off by saying I've never been backpacking before. I've been hiking quite a bit but never had to carry a backpack. With that being said I have to say this trail was pretty challenging for me. My friend and I were planning on doing the loop but we were on a time limit so we had to backtrack the way we came in. The trip didn't start off to well. Reading other reviews we knew to look for a cemetery, however we didn't know that Archers Fork Loop shared an entrance with North Country Trail. We passed a sign that was clearly marked for NCT, not knowing that's were we needed to go we drove passed it. About an hour later we arrived back at that sign and figured we would pull in to see if there was anything that told us where Archers Fork was located. To our surprise it was there. We started our hike around 4 towards the Great Cave and Natural Bridge. By the time we got to the bridge it was raining...not prepared for that. We trekked through the rain until about 6:45 then we set up our tent. It was pouring rain by then and we were soaked with no way to start a fire. We headed back the way we came in the morning. The trails were marked very well, however we followed blue blazes better than the yellow. Yellow blazes were spaced farther apart than the blue. We smelled the natural gas every now and then but it wasn't bad. We never heard any ATV's. Overall it was exciting to be doing something new but be prepared if you're not in shape(like me). I think we did about 8 miles all together. Hopefully we can go back so we can do the entire loop. I've never wrote a review before so hopefully this makes sense.

South Gorge Trail

I always enjoy this little section of trail when hiking through the area - it's much more interesting than the same stretch on the north side of the river. When hiking from Glen Helen through John Bryan into Clifton Gorge and back, I always cross the bridge to take this section when heading east into Clifton Gorge.

Spectacular scenery in autumn! Would like to have been permitted to hike closer to the falls, but hikers are asked to stay on boardwalk. Enjoyed a wonderful picnic down stream with my gorgeous wife.
