You may come across the occasional fallen tree or overgrown bush. Usually very peaceful with little traffic.
Nice waterfall at the end when it's been raining. We like trails that have a destination.
Kinda muddy. Well worn path. Several areas of rock overhangs used for "camping" by some locals.
The lake is nice with little amount of traffic.
Love this place! It is beautiful. It is a natural playground.
Good little hike. I hike it at about 4 mph a couple times a month. It would be nice if the trail was better marked, until you've walked it a couple times it's easy to get off on popular offshoots. Leaves are awful right now, very hard to get steady footing on the rocks.
Didn't catch any fish so decided to hike. The hike was nice but the trash was gross. I always carry a bag to carry out trash, this was the most I've ever had to pick up. Mostly at the beginning. Obviously a hangout for slobby people.
Wish the path was better marked but loved the waterfall!
Was fun but first time we went and took wrong path and almost fell off a rock 8ft and would have died... But besides that it is a lot of fun I would go again!!
Close to home and my go to for a quick hike with the pups. Love this place year round!
One of my favorite trails that's close to home. Started going in college and still love to go at least once a year.
Did this trail for the first time today. Overall, it's not bad. It makes for a pretty good training trail, when prepping/training for a longer more strenuous hike. Unfortunately, a lot of people seem to think it's ok to leave their trash laying around. Not excessive, but enough to notice. Overall, a decent hike, good side trails for exploring rock formations or climbing, and some nice overlooks and quiet areas to relax.
Nice little hike to a cute waterfall.
a good place for me and my friend to take r lil boys out and start them hiking
Trail was pretty easy .. Would be a great spot to take some fishing kayaks .. Very calm water .. Waterfall was pretty cool seen some Better ones, but was worth the hike !
Took the kids. Was lovely to explore with them! It's a popular spot.
