Had a great time hiking today going to the lookout. Didn't have time to go all the way to the falls but we will next time.

Great hike to a platform which overlooks the valley and the falls on the other side. Great trail surface and moderate ascent/descent. My 85 year old father and 8/6 year old girls did the walk in about an 1hr 20min each way, no complaints. Great hike.

Nice trail. A good climb with views to make the effort certainly worth-while. Heavily trafficked on this occasion; granted it was a Saturday afternoon. Would go again. Waterfall at the top--followed by a 100% downhill hike--is your reward.

This was a good hike. I went down the Dismal Trail and back up the Naturaland Trail. I think this direction is easier than having to climb up the Dismal Trail. I enjoyed the Cathedral off the Naturaland trail. The suspension bridge was neat. I would still like to find a way to get a better/closer view of the Falls. I would probably not do this trip again, but I am glad I did it. My GPS indicated a total of 8.8 miles (I did not go to the Falls overlook as I had been there previously). Overall a good workout.

I have done tons of hiking with my kids ages 6, 8 and 17 and this trail is defiantly one of our favorites. It has everything we enjoy on a trail: waterfalls, cool bridges, huge rock formations and best of all awesome views. It is a challenging trail and may be a little much for younger children who are not active. I saw a few family's turn back on the way up. The trail is pretty much a constant climb for 3.6 miles. The trail is well kept and well trafficked but not crowded even on a Saturday evening. At the beginning of the trail at the nature center they will give you a certificate saying you have completed the trail. The kids thought it was cool.

Hiking trail is alright and a little dirty, but once you get to the end the actual quarry is one of the best swimming spots in Clemson so bring a swimsuit and towel!

Great trail if you don't mind getting a little dirty. Not very busy, which I love!

Getting back into this and this is a great beginner / intermediate trail. Just about ready to take on something tougher. If you're out of shape, this is still entirely doable, and a great workout. Either way, it's a really fun ride.

Great trail! Waterfall was worth the hike- not much traffic either. My dog loved it!
