I'm not sure if I am writing the review for the correct trail, but it's labeled as Waterfalls Trail in the actual park, but appears to be the start of Sitton's Gulch Trail on the south end.

I was highly disappointed in this trail, if you even call it a trail. It was a man-made stairmaster the entire way. I wanted to escape and feel like I was out in the woods which is really hard to do when you feel fenced in a boardwalk the whole time walking metal stairs.

Also, was pretty disheartening to see all the trash people had thrown over the rails especially after having to pay $5 to get into the park. I guess I am spoiled living in TN where most parks here are free to enter and seem to be way less trashed.

The waterfall was dried up when we went, which was to be expected in July, but the scenery is beautiful. The overlook is gorgeous right by the parking lot. Maybe this trail is much better if you continue past the waterfalls and further along the trail as other reviews have suggested.

Been here more than a dozen times and have canoed every trail that has been opened since my first visit in 1992. My wife and kids were hesitant at first, but now if we miss a year they start asking when will we go back?

Fun trails, provided maps along the way stink ( old and faded ). Although rated moderate, I found the trails easy to navigate and not too bad on the knees and ankles. People were jogging on them.

It was great!
I'm not going to lie I thought I was going to die at about 2 miles in. I guess it wasn't the best starter trail for a 50 year old!

Very nice, easy hike. Lots of roots. Very dog friendly. The hound dog loved it.

High points ... very friendly and helpful staff. Saw two or three dolphins feeding lazily in The Narrows while we were on the Avian Loop.

Not a challenging hike, very flat terrain.

Nice for the family & the dog.

The pics are from lunch at Tubby's Tank House after the hike. Also the dog crashed in the bed. Did about 4.5 mi.

Hiking, camping, geocaching, biking, and kayaking. Ft Yargo is the place to hang out. I enjoy mixing up my activities at Ft Yargo each visit. The trails are enjoyable any time of the year. I sometimes bring the kayak up to Yargo and just paddle to one side and take the trail around and paddle a bit more. Always see new life and things on each visit. It's a retreat only moment a from home

Not good. There are too many trails, it gets very confusing. I had to turn around at least 4 times. It was also pretty populated, which I didn't like. The trail goes by the Roswell Mill, for anyone who knows what that it.
