Points of Interest

1. Take the Equestrian trail, it is a steep uphill for several miles.

Keep an eye and ear out for mountain bikers, especially on the weekends.

2. Leave Equestrian trail

Its the first trailhead you come to, to the right. Has two signs (both laying down) stating "Scenic trail." About 1/4 down you come to a clearing, trail goes on to the west and a logging road goes to uphill. Take the uphill.

3. This area switches around

Continue to go uphill, there are some back and forth on logging roads. Ultimately you get to a clearing, outside of the State Park. You can see the top of a house about 1/2 mile away.

4. Continue up

This continues up, a lot further than you might expect. I do believe you can keep going and that there are several options to drop back down to the Equestrian trail. I went "over the top," then took the first trail back down.

This is the area of the hike where you can see long distances.

5. Waterfall

This is the top of the Loop, your walking through a tree covered trail. Note, you can continue to hike up past the falls, there's a sign that says "More Hiking." Takes you to some sort of cabin, I did not head up that way.

The immediate trail down from here is steep and can be muddy - a trekking pole does come in handy.

6. Steep trail

Steady foot holds, this little section of the trail would not be fun in the rain.

7. Nice View

This is a wonderful view, below here the trail is steep and switches back and forth.

8. A bever dam

Actually several beaver dams
