Hey guys! As stated below the others noted it's not 6.something miles. It's what there trail map recorded: a little over 4! I've hiked it recently and back in 2006. So my opinion would be to take the trail clockwise! The incline uphill is what I would say an "easy uphill" which is always nice!
You'll cross a few small low points/creeks. There extremely small shallow creeks so no worries even on a rainy day!
When you make it to "the Grotto" trail about the half way point in the main trail the sign states it's ".25 miles" to the Grotto. NO, it's literally like a 7 minute walk. It's worth seeing!
Note: Soon as you climb the small hill/bluff right past the "Grotto" sign a trail/old road cuts directly back to the left.(it's a well traveled travel-The name is unknown? Because really I believe it's been traveled on to no where because people missed the painted mark on the bluff pointing down hill leading people down the bluff to the grotto trail sign(hikers doing trail counter clockwise) Don't take it. After climbing hill/bluff after the Grotto sign Continue straight following alongside the bluff line and look for the trail diving off to the left into the pines! {Just trying to help the trail guessers or blind map readers!} Have a blast and take a ton of photos!

This is a great hike. The trail is well maintained and marked. It is easy most of the way but rated moderate due to the rocky steps which can be a challenge especially if it is wet. The state park trail guide says it takes 4 1/2 hours to complete. We did the trail plus the grottos; which are well worth the extra half mile, in about 3 hours.

Great trail! One of the best hikes I've done in a while. Going the extra distance but to see the grotto is super worth it. Trail is very well marked. Storms this season have caused a few trees to fall on the path, but it's easy to get around. We went right when you reach the fork at the beginning, and as others have suggested, think it's the best way to do the trail.

Love this trail!!!! So many things to see. Great bluffs and tons of boulders to play on! The "Grotto" is worth the extra steps....cool little spot!

Trail was great and well marked. I would recommend going counterclockwise, for the sake of having more sights to see on the tail side once you may be more tired. We did it after a week of rain and the creek was bubbling the whole time and even some unexpected waterfalls. The grotto and natural bridge are great areas to have a packed lunch (and packed out of course).

This is a great trail. Make sure to visit the Grotto, you won't regret it.

A very scenic trail and I look forward to going back in spring. Could be a bit challenging in areas but if I can most can. It is very rocky in places and a comfortable walk in others. The waterfall was the icing on the cake.

easy to moderate awesome rock formations i would suggest once you start the trail to go right towards the grotto and make the time to check it out and stop and admire the natural bridge
