Isolated, overgrown, muddy. Also used as a horse trail so watch out for droppings. Abandoned recreation area with lots of shot up plastic bottles and shell casings. Not recommended unless you are with a group, know good self defense, or have a gun carry permit and armed. I will not return to this trail.

It was wet while we were there so I can’t really give a good one but it was enjoyable

This was an excellent hike. Amazing views and plenty of places to relax. Ravens point is a view worth the hike. Take lots of water!

Absolutely amazing hike. I went counter clockwise at the trail entrance and did the stairs first down to the waterfall and was happy someone suggested this. I was glad I took my trekking pole to assist me on the slippery rocks when walking in the water and climbing up into the waterfall. Wear waterproof shoes and bring extra socks! I picnicked up right next to the waterfall, it was beautiful. Be sure to follow the white paint on the trees to stay on the trail to the waterfall, anything with two colors together; means it’s a joining trail and not necessarily headed towards the waterfall.

Rocky path in parts. great trail!

I really enjoyed this trail. I had such a blast with the family. It's a nice and easy stroll.

Outstanding! Make sure you start early and plan your whole day around it. So much to see. You’ll want to stop and take it all in. Maybe consider camping overnight to break it up. It’s a hike! But a great one!

This is a very easy but relaxing trail.

Great short hike! You do have to cross water at times, so wear water proof shoes or bring extra socks!

I’ve been hiking here since I was a child. Great day hike and plenty of other activities to do in the park.

Great hike! It is challenging, especially when you hike down to the bottom of the falls because the hike back up is a rough one. I love this state park and it holds so many different waterfalls so I would highly recommend that you try all of the falls out! Also, if you can get a chance to see these falls in the winter, I would highly recommend it!

One of my top three trails.

One of my favorites! Gorgeous and a nice day hike. It's incredible all 4 seasons. It's somewhat rugged for beginners but there is a shorter hike that leads into this one, it also goes on to a 13 mile hike if you want a little more.

Really nice hike. First part is paved and the second part isn't. It has a really nice overlook of the lake. Though the bridges you see in the picture are not on this trail, they are on the trail next to it called Lost Creek Overlook trail. Which was a very nice trail as well.

Great, challenging trail well worth the hike.

Had an amazing time hiking the machine trail. it was absolutely beautiful, we will be headed back soon.

Great trail. Directions posted on here made it very easy to find. A little rocky and slippery when it’s been raining but the falls is beautiful!

This hike exceeded my expectations. I'd recommend it for all ages and skill levels, plus the trailhead is only about a mile or so off I-40. For an easy short hike, the sights are pretty cool. You get great views of the small lake from down by the water and from above via the ridge trail that circles the lake. The old abandoned buildings are a unique feature and fun to explore. We finished the 2 mile hike in just under an hour, but this trail could easily be completed in less time if you don't take stops to look around.

There are better hikes around Nashville, but this one is definitely worth checking out.

Best trail at this great park! This trail provides awesome lookouts of Cane Creek Gorge, Cane Creek Falls, and of course Fall Creek Falls, and it really isn’t that long of a trail. I recommend doing this hike early in the morning and catching a sunrise at one of the overlooks!

The falls are beautiful!

Easy and short and the river is close and loud so it clears your head. cool facts on the area with the stone fort, ancient people's and the mill

super fun pretty and easy hike. had to cross over the river and some places to stay on the trail because it was so high but that made the hike even better!

Good trail when it has not been rain as much as it has. Will be going back.

I like this trail because of the cedar glades and the wildflowers, the problem is that it is easy to get confused on the trail, it wasn't well marked when I went the last few times. Also it can be very muddy...but still worth it.

For a local park, it's a great place to hike with the pups. Also fun for a trail run...

This loop has a lot of great views. Get out there early so you can take your time to soak it all in.

a favorite, especially like checking out sycamore falls in winter
