Fantastic. Quiet easy stroll through nature. Crossed paths with a deer, a stick bug, and a number of butterflies.

Great! But as another guy below my review says, you WILL get lost easily here. Their trail color system is not clearly marked nor used frequently enough along the trail. My 3.2 jaunt turned into a 6.2 slog through the Alabama 'Outback'.
The first half I loved Got to see a very cool double waterfall and several deer along trail.
Would do again.

the hike was relatively simple for a 3 years old and a 6 years old. however, once we arrived at the destination, we were on top of the waterfall so I was very paranoid that my kids would slip and fall down. so we stayed nearby a creek which led to the waterfall ledge. I will go alone next time to check how we can get under the waterfall. Overall, it was a beautiful nature hike.

Loved this trail, especially the waterfall that was just a little ways in! Amazing swimming pool at the bottom of the short waterfall with rocks to jump from into it!

It was pretty, well marked, and easy. It was busy with lots of hikers and mountain bikers. Unfortunately, the waterfall on McKay Hollow was nonexistent.

Great afternoon hike, completed in two hours. My only complaint is the Tollgate stretch of the trail, it's made up of really large gravel, easy to slip or roll an ankle while climbing uphil.

The first mike was a nice gravel road through timber and swamps, and the last mile was next to the lagoon, alligator lake and then a wonderful beach.
