close enough from home, still interesting and nice trail. if you are with young kids, I recommend going counter clockwise to the stream. I don't think the trail is kid's friendly after that (rocky and bushy with thorny plants)

Love this trail. I saw it was listed as kid friendly -- I would say age 10+ because of the rocks and steep areas along the creek. Beautiful hike!!

Love this trail!Go early and feel like you have stepped back in time. Scenic water falls,GIGANTIC rock formations....do this! One warning when you reach the road you have over a mile,and a decent climb uphill back to lot....so worth it

The rock part and stream part of the trail was great. The field part was extremely overgrown which made it difficult. Other than that it was a nice hike.

Fun trail with lots of nice scenery. There were a few sections that got a bit tricky with wet rocks, but nothing that was a problem with a good pair of boots. My dog really enjoyed the small swimming holes.

this was a great hike. I am so very disappointed that the trail has been closed. from my understanding there is talk about getting them to reopen. hopefully the trail community can post what info comes up as it is learned.

I loved this hike but I just learned that the landowners have sold off the property and the new owners have put up no trespassing signs and are officially blocking access to this wonderful trail!

Great hike, moderate difficulty. Plenty of places to include more technical climbs along the water. Super water spot in the summer for kids as well.
