Great on the way there, tough on the way back up. The trail isn’t well marked but it’s pretty well trafficked you can figure it out.

Beautiful, well maintained trail. Lots of moss and the falls were beautiful

Cute, short hike with some amazing geology. We found a few fossils along the way.

Nice walk with the family... Keep an eye out for turkeys, and deer...

Well maintained trail, easy hike with short steep sections near the end at the caves.

Great trail!! The hike isn't too tough unless you're out of shape like me.

Fun going down, not so fun coming back up! Short round trip with some amazing scenery.

I loved this trail. As you begin your hike don't let the dry creek bed concern you. Most of the year the creek flows underground. It remains dry until just before you reach the natural bridge. You can walk beside the creek under it. Be careful of slippery rocks. There are two small caves just above the natural bridge. They are fun to explore but are not the one with the waterfall. The trail gets steeper as you hike to Eden Falls. There is a nice overhang to explore there. The trail continues very steeply up to the cave. At one point you must crawl before it opens to a room with the waterfall. There were plenty of children and elderly people who went back successfully, but it gets so low before it opens up the you start to believe you can't go any further. Once you get to the back it is well worth the bumped knees and head. I recommend a strong flashlight the will illuminate the room well. It is always recommend to have at least three sources of light. I was in a cave once and accidentally broke two lights. I always carry plenty now. Have fun!

We hiked this trail this past week. It has a waterfall, caves, and beautiful rock formations. The trail is not difficult and good for families. Highly recommend for those that love nature.

We hiked out to the Hawksbill Crag this past week. It was a very enjoyable hike. It was not very difficult, about 3.2 miles with about 100 ft of ascent. My 4 yr old daughter handled the hike without issue. The view from the Crag was something to behold. Highly recommend this hike.

When we arrived there were only a few cars at 8:30am, and we saw minimal people in passing on the way in. Then on the hike out, they came in by the droves! But I don’t blame them, the views of creation are beautiful from this trail.

Loved it! We went on a sprinkling and foggy morning and arrived around 9am and had the whole place to ourselves until about 10:30! It was great! Beautiful scenery and fun to explore!

Was disappointed that you can not get close to the castle. But it is probably due to lack of respect from others. There is amazing views from the ruins.We did see a lot of vultures.

It was a scenic hike, but lots of people on this trail after 10am.

Waterfalls, beautiful rock formations and not too bad of a hike!! Perfect

Easy hike. The caves are super fun. Especially when the falls is actually running. Look for Eden falls too, it’s stunning!

The trail is easy to follow and the glory hole is impressive! Lots of rocks to climb on if you continue on the trail!

The hike was easy and beautiful. I’ve been in different seasons and all are lovely.

So many memories of this trail over the years with my Mom who is now in Heaven. We use to be able to camp at the beginning of the trail but flooding stopped that. This is a beautiful, well maintained and still being improved trail. The Spring flowers and wild lilacs are amazing! The creek bed is usually pretty dry when I have been but there are some amazing formations in the bed. At the mouth of the stream sometimes it is full and flowing and a sight to see. If you continue on up you can go into the cave and see the falls. Be careful to stay on the trail too many adventurers have wondered right into dangerous and deadly situations up there above the falls.

Beautiful hike. Great scenery and not too difficult.

Took my youngest son this past weekend. Lots of water. Some ankle and hip turners on the way down and the rocks were very slippery. If you use the trail next to the stream, there are some hidden holes. Just be careful.

Close to the city. Variety of trails - some fully paved and short, others longer with more varied terrain. Can be very busy on weekends when the weather is nice.

So beautiful. Go after a good spring rain for some nice falls! First mile or so of hike is very easy, almost boring. Once you cross the creek, it starts to get better with views.

Especially after rain this is gorgeous!

There is more to this trail. Look for hidden trails and waterfalls.

So Beautiful.... easy trail and family friendly!

Great hike. Didn’t not do the full 7 because I left my cord to charge my phone but when I got back to my vehicle I seen a tower and walked in that direction and found a cave and bridge which led to the HA HA castle which was awesome and I would highly recommend it and I actually ended up doing 7 miles anyway lol

beautiful and short trail! great for if you only have a few hours. be sure to bring a truck because the parking for this trail in nonexistent.

Decent enough trail that's probably best traveled during the spring or fall when there is some more color to appreciate. There were a surprising amount of armadillos surrounding the trail!
