Nice hike, especially for wildflowers in spring. Two areas are difficult for me, climbing up or down the rocks near the river (you have to go down them if you start from the higher trail, up is easier) and coming back up the hill to the parking area.
Great moderate hiking trail for beginners with a wonderful river vista at the halfway point. Recent rains made the ground and rocks a little slick and the trail was blocked in one place by a downed tree, but these were easy challenges to overcome. Beautiful trail!
Well marked trail, enjoyed the loop out to the rapids. Access point to water is very small area but pretty view.
We trekked the trail Thanksgiving Day. It was an easy hike and just long enough to feel like we had walked off part of our huge lunch. Foliage colors were still vibrant and gorgeous along the trail and creek. We saw one mature black racer, lots of cardinals and small birds. At least 7 people were hiking and some of them had dogs, so it was busy. A beautiful view of the river is about halfway down the trail. You will see homes along certain parts of the trail, but it didn't bother us. The trail was very well marked and easy to follow.
Well marked and maintained trail with enough ascents/descents to keep it invigorating. Scenic with the fall leaf colors and the Savannah River. I went on a Saturday morning in November, and it was surprisingly devoid of other hikers. The trailhead is a bit misleading as it is sandwiched between private residences while driving to it, and even while doing the initial part of the hike. Persevere--it is worth it.
Great hiking spot.
Nice little trail and easy to follow.
trail was a little rough with lots of downed trees in the trail, but overall a beautiful hike
I love the scenery on this trail and the fact that it isn't your typical boring paved trail. It was definitely a challenge with some of the inclines. Some parts were hard to navigate due to fallen trees on the path. But we got creative. There is an awesome view of the Savannah river and you can even see the Augusta Canal from the halfway mark.
Great view about a mile in of the Savannah River
Very enjoyable hike but a little busy, if you're looking for some alone time maybe not the choice for you. However if you're looking for something close just to get out in nature it is a nice little getaway.
