The trail is a good workout and offers plenty of opportunities for wildlife to be spotted. The views in the summer aren't that spectacular mostly because the trees block the view. However, I can definitely see how there would be awesome views so I will be making a return visit come this fall/early winter.

Amazing views - they have definitely improved on marking the trails. BUT, with that being said, bring a map! My fiance and I went to go hike a couple miles and ended up hiking 10. The view was totally worth it.

Observation tower gives a good view of the Center hill dam. There is also a good 2 mile trail that leaves and comes back to the visitor center. We even walked out off trail on a couple of islands in the park.

I usually kayak on this trip but hiked this weekend. Beautiful ferns on the Highland Rim. The Millennium was pretty easy hike and the connector to the Merrit was a pretty hike along the ridge.
If you are in the area stop by Big Rock Market/Caney Fork Outdoors for lunch and a kayak shuttle on the Caney.

Great place to camp. They also have primitive camping sites. If you own a canoe, or kayak I recommend a lazy float down the caney fork river just below the dam. nice trails as well.
