Beautiful. A must see

horrible the trees are cut down

easy, great for kids and the staff is very welcoming and kind. very clean too

a great run, less crowded than the West side of the trails

Nice steady incline! Loved going up, but not so much going down with how rocky it is you have to slow down. Don't expect any views though, this ends at a cliff on Cecil Ashburn over looking the parking lot of Blevins Gap.

Perfect for a relaxing and easy hike. Very child friendly. Have been visiting the Nature Trail since I was a child and now take my own kids. Large picnic area that is great for family gatherings.

The park's map mileage is off, listing this as 3.1 miles. My Garmin tracked it at 4.1. It's moderately marked well, with a few turns leading to a bit of confusion. Still, this was an enjoyable hike with some elevation. My 9 year old son enjoyed it and had no problems.

Very nice scenic walk along a creek culminating with a beautiful view of Sweetwater lake. Area around the dam is good for a picnic or campsite.

Awesome hiking

Fairly easy but a lot to see and multiple trails along with treehouses! Beautiful scenery!

We hiked the 6.6 mile section from the range station off hwy 78 to rd 500. The trial difficulty is moderate but it has two steep climbs.

Great trail, vary nice waterfall. Well marked and maintained. I'll have to go back in the spring, I bet its gorgeous.

Sherry Walkers review was awesome helping me find this place. I passed right by it prior to reading what she said and was near giving up based on my gps. I agree what she said that you take what you get also. The falls are beautiful and I only saw the ones at the 2nd and 3rd views they had posted. It seems that the folks trying to maintain this place are doing what they can but it is not a state park so just keep that in mind. If you are timid of heights then the 3rd overlook is a bit scary. I hope to go back in the spring and see the 3rd overlook when I have more daylight.
