I hiked this trail by myself on February 7 2017. I only passed two fishermen within the first mile, then I had the trail all to myself the rest of the way. it is an old road, so it is an easy trail. Beautiful scenery. I went to Indian Flats Falls
What a beautiful trail! We hiked the trail today all the way to Indian Flat Falls. It's an excellent hike. I would say heavy moderate hiking. The majority of this trail was carved by a railroad company that logged the area prior to the establishment of the park, so the first 3 miles or so is wide and well kept. A lot of rocks. The views of the stream are incredible with a lot of opportunities to get down into or cross the stream. Love the huge boulders. Lots of other water falls along the way. If you maintain course you can connect to the Appalachian Trail..another 4 miles beyond the Indian Flat Falls.
Beautiful Stroll with lots of water scenery
Beautiful trail to hike!
Beautiful hike with numerous falls and cascades full shade
This is a fairly easy trail. The turn off for the waterfall is not marked, but it is the only fork in the road.
This is a nice pretty trail along a creek. You pass several small waterfalls on a steady incline the whole way up. Its not hard but it does get steep enough to get some people winded in the last mile.
It's not the kind of trail you can loose your way on, but right near the trailhead there is a fork. On tbe right its a narrow trail and the left is a wide path. Take the path. the trail on the right goes back 3/4 of a mile then dead ends at a creek.
One of my favorite hikes. Was hoping to cross at Panther Creek, but we went in the winter and couldn't make the river crossing.
