Wooded hike, along creek, hilly terrain This is a nice relatively short hike through an open woodland. The trail initially drops, where it runs parallel with a small creek. It follows the creek for roughly one half a mile. There is a wooden platform built, overlooking the creek and a small waterfall, if water levels permit. The trail then climbs away from the creek through a slightly more open wooden section, and finally back to the trailhead.

great relaxing short trail. pretty easy, the waterfalls were all dried up when I went, but will definitely return during the spring.

Enjoyed the trail. Definitely will be revisiting in the spring time hopefully more water flowing.

We enjoyed the trail but were disappointed that there was no water flowing from the waterfall areas. It was relatively dry with standing water. I would do it again if I was limited with time but I'll probably look at some of the other trails before coming back.

A fun hike that my 4yo enjoyed even though she slipped on the rock steps in the final third of the trail. Thankfully the canopy provided lots of shade on one of the hottest days of the year.

My most favorite trail in Charlestown State Park. A nice, peaceful, easy, relaxing trail with a lot of good scenery in a little over a mile long trail.

Very nice scenic walk. Great for a beginner or for someone that just wants to get out and experience a very nice site. Hiked it today. How many 50 degree days do you get in the Louisville area?
