Really well maintained. Well marked. We hiked it in a little under 2 hours. Lots of great creek crossings. Can't wait to come back in the fall.

The trail is not very well-maintained. Pretty overgrown so wear pants. But it's a nice short loop. A little unclear where you cross the creek but we figured it out and had a nice outing.

The main trail is out and back. There was a side trail 'Rhett'sRun' which was fun and shaded. It is flanked by a municipal dump and a rock quarry so you can't easily make a circular route off trail.

Ok, very moderate effort required, a romp in the woods, needs better marking though, bridges across creek are highlights, does it really take that much to apply some decent trail badges? Picnic and staging area at trailhead are in excellent condition, clean and kept; why not pour about 2 hours' effort into letting hikers know where to go on this hike, since there are other trails in the complex?

Trails are well defined but little or no signage at junctions. Main trail was crowded on Saturday afternoon side trails were almost deserted so carry a map or be willing to ask other hikers for directions. Easy trails a good afternoon hike.

Good. Went in at Hartsburg for a little walk and picnic. Nice people on the trails just really flat so it gets monotonous.

Loved this trail! Was beautiful in the fall. Relaxing, easy hike where you can admire the sites. Make sure you check out the natural bridge!

My wife and I hiked this trail the other day and really enjoyed it. The varied terrain was nice and there were plenty of spots just to stop and admire the beauty.

I agree with the other reviewers. The trail (Smith Creek Loop) is terrible due people riding their horses when the ground is wet. A lot of the time we had to walk in the woods beside the trails so we wouldn't twist our ankles or step in the deep holes they left. The views on top of the bluffs are beautiful and there some great spots to stop and camp.

Really nice trail even though the path is not well marked and it is easy to end up on another trail.

I love this trail when I need a quick nature fix. There are many sink holes and 2 gated caves along the way. The kids enjoyed the abandoned old silos. It's easy to make this hike longer because it connects with a couple other trails.

Best trail in the Columbia area for nonstop fun and challenging terrain. My favorite trail system thus far. Will be back...Goodtimes!

I love this trail just like all the others in the Rock Bridge system, but they really need to mark their trails better.
