The trail was in great condition, though with the dry weather there wasnt much water in any of the creeks or waterfalls. Great hike though!

Nice and easy trail. Well maintained. Was a little bit crowded at the waterfalls. Very good overall.

Awesome hike. Beautiful trails. Waterfalls. Challenging enough, and a wonderful view from the tower.

Truly a hidden gem. Frozen Head State Park is gorgeous and is always kept in top shape. I always stop by there when traveling close to that area. There is no prettier place to be during the fall. the trails are awesome. Love this Park!!!

Primitive camping spots are great. Loved being next to the water. Waterfalls were beautiful. The hike to tub springs was a disappointment. But half a mile up is the fire tower which was amazing!

I've been on many trails, this hands down is one of the prettiest that I've been on right up there with Virgin falls and Savage Gulf. Hiked up Emory Gap then up to Panther BranchTrail, this is an incline trail and a little challenging especially for first time hikers. From there to Tub Springs down to South Old
Mac Trail to Judge Branch and Interpretative Trail. Can't say enough of this beautiful hike. 6 hours 10 mile loop. What a wonderful day to spend Easter 2015

We spent most of our time by the camp fire at our site at Big Cove Campground. Site 19 was right on the creek and there was quite a bit of rushing water thanks to rain and the unusual amount of snow this year. This was the cleanest, best-maintained campground we have visited in a while. There wasn't a single piece of trash at the campground or on Bird Mountain Loop trail, and the bathrooms were cleaner than most public bathrooms I've ever used. You can tell that the people who run the park and campground love the place like its their own.
