Good hike. Great little place and well marked. Just make sure you take at the loop!

Great hike with kids!

Great hike, even without the waterfall running and the creek beds being pretty dry. Definitely take the optional loop when you get too it. The shallow cave at the top is awesome.

Trail is well marked, offering a variety of paths - rocky, root strewn, well-packed earth, and natural stairs created by stones. We went early (9:45 am) and took our time so the inclines didn’t seem daunting. Noticed more valley scenes that vistas. Little bit of rain, but with the leaves still intact, we hardly felt a drop. Nice experience and exercise. Would definitely recommend.

good conditioning from lake to bench.

Great views, not crowded!

Nice easy trail

Great trail! Would not grade it as hard. More of the high end of moderate. Well marked. Dachshund friendly. Great workout. No real excess to the lake.

This trail is literally five minutes from the home I grew up in and it took 25 years for me to find it! Absolutely gorgeous. It’s fun to see the diversity, going from fairytale waterfalls to swampland to thick forests and bamboo. Great trail to explore! I’d recommend bringing shoes that you are okay with getting wet. :)

Beautiful little well kept trail. Worth to see if you're in the area

Gorgeous views. We actually hiked at Hemlock on a rainy day, and it was a lot of fun.

Fantastic little 1 mile hike with gorgeous surroundings, cool breeze, lush foliage!
Perfect for kids, beginners & a quick workout.
Cool streams to splash in & explore!
Loved it!

Walked this trail with me 2 yr old grandson and his mom. Excellent day.

Hard rain but we persevered. Can’t wait to return and try it dry

Surprised that another review said this trail was well-marked a month ago because it certainly wasn't when I went yesterday. I had to stop to check a map more than once and I even had to turn around when the path I was following suddenly ended. There were also a lot of bugs even with bug spray. And my 30 lbs dog was too scared to do the metal stairs and had to be carried. The waterfall was enjoyable though. I would go back but only for the waterfall (not the trail) and only without my dog.

Moderate well marked and not busy. , but mid July @ 94 degrees may not be the best time to try it.

Beautiful views along the way. Waterfall was a lighter flow than what I was expecting. But still very peaceful, not a crowded trail.

Challenging enough to be interesting without being too long or exhausting on a hot day in July. Saw lots of turtles and one adult northern water snake

Was on this trail yesterday and got lost when I got to the Creek… Not very well marked on the other side. Literally spent four hours yelling for help. Luckily I remembered honeycomb rock when I saw it and was able to find the path again. One of the scariest days of my life.

It’s a decent trail with low traffic. Not hard but not a moderate run either.

Nice easy trail with beautiful waterfall, cave, and wetlands. Took the kids and the dogs. The blue heeled had hard time w metal staircase boxer had a little trouble but walked it all the way down. I would definitely come again.

beautiful place to get away from it all.

Great trail. Not too many people on a Saturday morning. Not a "hard" trail as stated, closer to a moderate.

The trail was a lot of the same view throughout. Lots of trees and wooden steps. Glad I wore long pants due to the path being narrow and overgrown with weeds. Trees down and in the path requiring you to climb over. For a lot of the hike you can actually see and hear traffic due to the trail being so close to the road. Not my favorite hike, probably wouldn’t pursue it again.

Been going here for years and it's still one of my favorite places to go in the Southern Indiana Area! Very nice and peaceful place to go and get away from people for a day or two!

Beautiful and challenging hike for a beginner but absolutely rewarding and worth it upon completion!

I liked the well marked pathway. I never felt like I could lose the way. This easy trail is beautiful and well maintained. Go see some caves and a wetlands area! Be careful on slippery rocks around the waterfalls.

A good choice for us. Good shade from the heat, good variety of up and downhills. Very pretty, but lacking in scenic lookouts since there's no large peaks around. I'm 45 in fair shape and would consider the full loop moderate. Don't let the 'hard' label worry you too much. We spotted several toads, a few turtles, a snake, and some very active fish once we reached the lake.
