Nice out and back. Good shade and easy ups and downs. Perfect for trail running and Mtn bikes.

Varied terrain made it interesting. Only one section that I would call difficult. Signage could have been better. There were parts that I didn't know what trail I was on.

My husband and I hiked this trail together. We are in our 50s and overweight but we managed to make it. Some parts were difficult but we survived and enjoyed it. We had no problem staying on the trail. We just followed the paint markings on the trees.

Great 1 to 2 hour hike, easy access, huge Loblolly Pine Trees along the trail leading to Short Creek.

Amazing hike with three dogs. Beautiful views of Short Creek and one bald eagle.

This trail is obscured in many areas due to trees down from lingering tornado damage, and the trail junctions are unclear, resulting in my following animal trails accidentally instead of the real trail. I took 2 dogs, and while we completed the loop around the island, we weren't on the trail for about 70% of the hike, it wasn't without a fair amount of difficulty. I had to lift my oldest of my large dogs over many tree trunks.

Easy hike to do with family.

I did this trail today and was very disappointed. It is not maintained very well hard to even tell where the trail is in some parts.

We went in July 2015, the 2011 tornado really did a job on the canopy so the sun was brutal. Lots of under growth on the trails and it's bad year for ticks. Might be a great hike in the winter.

Myself, my son and my brother-in-law and his son completed this trail in the fall of 2014. Wonderful trail with a surprise at the water at the turnaround. We are going back to hike out and picnic in that turn around area in 2015.

There wasn't actually a waterfall, but it was still a beautiful trail! Lots of beautiful flowers, and it wasn't too hard to hike. Went geocaching and found the "Bear Cave cache"... So much fun :)
