Chalk Ridge Falls is a great park with a huge area for trails and recreation. Unfortunately, like all TWPC parks, it is posted no alcahol or animals. We have laid several hash trails in and around the park with great success. The trails are actually very fun for this style of running the trail. There is a lot of washed out places around the river which make it good for running a hash trail.

Not a bad run, the trail gets really tight after about .75 mile close to the river. Thorn bushes are pretty bad, a few downed trees that can be hopped over while running. There are sections with washed out stairs, the suspension bridge is a little odd to jog over. Overall not terrible but Dana Peak is much nicer with more area to run.

Trail is relaxing and (mostly) well maintained. Markers kind of 'disappear' towards the end. A good beginner/light trail with some 'side quests' for those that want to explore. Well worth a visit for anyone that wants to do an afternoon stroll and relax. Even if the parking lot is full....you will find some quiet time on the trails.

Love the waterfall, and the bridges. Get off the beaten path to see some beautiful views.

if you just follow the path you will not be able to appreciate the full beauty of the hike. I got some really amazing photos and just had a really great time when I also went off path and took the paths that where really less traveled. it was a really good time though, and I look forward to coming back.

Trail was so over grown I couldn't pass because I couldn't tell where the trail started back up however I did start heading back and created my own adventure and had lots of fun with a friend.

great hiking and fishing...

Great spot to explore. It's a bit crowded at times, but the bridges and trails make the trip well worth the time.

Decent place. Lots of people swimming in the creek. Easy walk for the kids.
