This hike makes a loop through extremely hilly and wooded terrain centered by a small lake. You will navigate a nest of sometimes confusing paths with an amazing number of trail intersections for the park’s size. Start out by exploring pretty Lake Loretta, with the nearby nature center and covered bridge as a backdrop, before climbing into steep hills. Work your way toward little Twin Lake, then make a long curve on a high ridge, viewing impressive sandstone cli? lines and other geological features reminiscent of the Hocking Hills, including a rock house. Work your way back to the parking area, passing umpteen more intersections.
