Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The shoreline of Cave Run Lake, with spots for wading or swimming if you don’t mind a rocky beach, is the highlight of this hike. A fire tower along the trail, once offering hikers a 360-degree view, is now closed due to an arson fire that severely damaged the cab of the tower in 2008."
