Overall fun and easy hike on Christmas Day. Ran into just a few people enjoying the unseasonably warm weather. Trail was muddy so it was extremely slippery. Be careful on wet rocks and leaves. Some beautiful views of the river. Never really escape the noise of I65. That might be different in the summer when the trees are in full leaf. I found one area a little difficult to follow. Ended up off trail, even with All Trails map loaded. Simple correction but take care. I wasn't the only one fooled.

It was awesome. When you are looking off the cliff go down one of the trail heading to river and you will see the trail with all the caves. Just follow the bottom of the cliff

Absolutely beautiful, and the cave was even better! I’ll definitely be back here again this year.

This is a great trail to hike. I've been a couple dozen times. My kids love it too. Great views. When the water is flowing there is a pretty cool little water fall. WATCH OUT FOR TIMBER RATTLERS! I've seen a bunch out there. They will leave you alone as long as you leave them alone. Be careful on the bluffs if you have small kids. A young girl fell off and died a few weeks ago.

Awesome trail. For those who are looking for the caves, they’re about .2 miles before the loop on the left, you hike down alongside the rock wall. Well worth it and the caves are great for cooldowns. The first cave goes straight down, so only go far down it if you have climbing gear. There are a few lookout spots as well. Excellent hike, pretty short with amazing experiences.

Excellent short hike. I couldn’t find the caves. That was frustrating. The trails it shoot off from the main trail are overgrown so I was afraid to try some of them because I didn’t have on the right clothing. But it was a good workout

Nice easy trail. A few elevations but nothing too steep. There’s an unarmed cave at the split of the loop. It’s worth checking out. The cave seems dark but once you enter the cave, a few short meters later, you are through the cave. There’s a steep path that lead to the river. I plan to go back and canoe down the river.

Definitely missed the cave but like another review said it’s right before the loop starts closer to the river. Wasn’t too thrilled with the trail being so muddy but just make sure you bring proper shoes. Two river crossings and a whole lot of fun rocks to jump on :)

I agree with what others have said about the drive in and the trailhead itself. There’s not really a parking lot area so I’m glad that the trail signs were visible and clear from the road. I hiked this trail with my dog early on Saturday morning in December, and though we had the trail to ourselves, we had a rough go of it due to heavy rains a few days before. The trail had not dried out as much as I’d hoped so it definitely made the footing a bit uneasy. I slipped many times and fell once, and my dog even had a little trouble keeping her footing in spots. There was a lot of running water flowing along the trail from the recent rains, too. We used the waypoints overlay on the trail map in the AllTrails app to locate the cave entrances while on our hike. We easily found the cave in the woods but had to muster up some courage and get creative to reach the two cave entrances below the bluffs due to the slick mud and steep gorges. Once there though, the caves were simply amazing and completely worth the extra effort needed to get to them. The fence is still at the entrance to the larger cave, but it has an opening that’s easy to go through. We didn’t encounter any critters in the caves on this hike. The trails were well marked throughout and easy to follow. I’ll definitely be back when the ground is a bit drier to explore some more. This place is beautiful and so serene.

We had a great time. Didn’t know about the caves until after, guess we will look for them next time. But it’s a fun trail to hike!

Really good easy/moderate trail with large rock formations, a beautiful view of the river and lots of small paths to explore. Will definitely be back. My husband, four year old and I did 2.5 miles exploring it today. Parts of the trail were muddy but overall it was in great shape.

SUCH a pretty terrain. I’d never take a small child to this one because of all of the bluffs but I’d definitely go back

Driving up to this trail, I must say, I was a bit worried. Some of the roadsigns on the way out are graffitied with the word "SKIN" over it and/or shot through with bullet holes, and the dogs from the canoe place chased my car a good way before I got to the gravel road. By the time I reached the trailhead, I felt so isolated that I was sure no one had been out here in forever and it was going to be Vesta Glade all over again. Forthunately, all my fears were relieved by this wonderful trail. The first half mile of the trail is over mostly loose rocks, so hikiing shoes or boots are highly recommended. This trail may also be the best marked that I have ever been on with bright blue blazes to follow frequently. There had been rain recently, so parts of the trail were like a shallow, trickling stream, and there are two points that will require you to cross over the stream. The bluffs and their views of the Duck River are simply awesome to behold. Another reviewer mentioned there was a fence on the cave entrance, but this was not present on the day I visited. Be careful as you descend into the cave as the entrance is steep, and I slipped on the mud going in, busting my wrist up a little in the process. My courage was rewarded with great cave views as well as the overlook at the end, about 30 feet above the river banks. I can't wait to visit again and bring friends.

Great trail and overall very satisfying. I visited this area with my wife in September. I had no idea where the cave was located and the previous reviews did not help so..... I will try to help those who go after me. If you follow the trail, a 1/4 mile BEFORE you reach the split as shown on the AllTrails map you will see a steep gorge/ run off to the left of the trail. This is the access point for the cave. At the bottom of the descent in this run off make a right. You will come to the first opening which is actually the top of the cave or exit. Keep following the trail to the main entrance. It has a large fence with a hole in it. Explore and enjoy! Hopefully this will help those who need it.

Found some very upset buzzards in the cave.

Definitely a cool trail with beautiful scenery. We found 2 caves but one was not very accessible. We couldn’t find them at first but the advice someone else had posted about staying on the river side (to the left) at the split after you have walked along the river for a while. Then start looking on your right for a trail shortly after the split. It leads you into the woods away from the cliff and to the first cave. Totally worth it but we ran out of time and had to stop exploring.

Great day hike on Father’s Day! Hiked with our 8, 10 and 12 year old. There is a place to rent canoes on the road in. We may try that another time. Takes about 1.5 hour and we explored the cave.

This does not go down to the river, but there is a little overlook. The trail is only well-maintained for the first half mile.

Easy hike with nice river lookouts. Found the cave, it took a while.But you'll find it if you look to the other side from the river.

I wish there was easy river access, but the caves are amazing. There are a few where a head lamp would be helpful. On the way in there are a series of small waterfalls that are nice to cool off in, but the river is down a steep embankment.

We had a great time on this trail. we actually did find the cave. You can see the river but do not get close enough to get in. We had teenagers with us and even they were in love with it.
