Take note that when they say "steep" on the trail map, they really do mean it.  I could only do one of those steep sections (up and down the other side that is).  Another one would have had me not walking anywhere for a week.  At any rate, it's always odd standing in line at a state park (on a weekday at that) but if you go to Lost Maples around peak color time then I expect you probably know what you're in for.  Took the East Loop, with a spur of the West Loop to the spring area and back.  Great fun overall.
