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.
