Took a Boy Scout Troop and the older boys did the Eastern half, while the younger boys did the Northwestern area. Trails overall are not well marked. Did not get too far off trail, but it is lightly traveled and could use some maintenance. Overall everybody found it a really good backpacking trip of 2 days/nights. Forced everybody to really pay attention and learn how to read the maps and trails. It was a different kind of challenge since it is not well-maintained or marked. You do need to stash water and you need to plan ahead where to do so. The creeks are all dry this time of year, don't know about the spring. Could not find good maps, but the state park provided enough to get by. The older boys are interested in going back with more time to do the entire loop, and found it a different kind of hike than the Knobstone, Red River, or Smokies.
