It's beautiful and serene.
I walked the surrounding trails afterwards.

Great loop trail. Shaded the whole way and there are a lot of other trails that branch off of it. Dogs allowed and wasn’t very crowded (5pm on weekday). Great way to escape heat In summer. Highly recommend.

Great trail and stroller friendly

great trail for dogs! good afternoon romp for my pup and me. pretty mellow trail. good shade. will be doing this again.

It was a nice hike. They have a wooden path that you hike on with railings. I went in the summer and the water was pretty dried up so it was mostly mud under the cat walk. Saw a snake, and a beaver along with some birds. Not dog friendly. Sign says no pets allowed.

Peaceful easy hike. Great growth and shade at the start and new growth after last years fire towards the falls. Easy access and soft trail.

We wanted a nice easy hike for my fiancé, our dog and I, and we got it! The trail was very clean and open, and although we didn't quite make it to Fern Falls, Deadline Falls was quite beautiful! The thing that stopped us was the poison oak on the trails since we were worried about our dog trying to get into it. Other than that, we can't wait to come back, maybe this time minus the dog.

My husband and 4 year old and I had fun walking this trail! It was our little ones first trail and we ended up doing both the old and new growth trails. Loved the bridges and lush growth along the way. Will do this again with our extended family!

Very confusing trail. connects to other trail without really good markings. I enjoyed what I was able to do but never found the creek.

Nice trail. I end up on this when I go to McDonald a lot. a good walk in the woods.

Did this hike a couple of weeks ago. It is a nice afternoon activity. It was moderately busy. Dogs are allowed off leash. My fur baby loves the water!

the grass after the boardwalk was very high, but what a lively walk! herons, ducks, and lots of frogs, drgaonflys, red winged black birds and even an owl... will do again!

Long gradual descent on gravel road before trail takes off into trees. It’s worth the trek, however, to see the biggest living trees I have ever seen! Wildflowers such as trillium, bleeding heart and yellow violets are in bloom now. Pretty much had the trail to ourselves at 5:30 pm Tuesday. Uphill on the way back.

Beautiful, albeit a little buggy.

nice easy hike with beautiful forest views. dog friendly too!

Great fire road hike. Did one off shoot trail to get a little muddy. Good steady incline!

Nice easy trail. beautiful scenery. my 7 year old loved this section of trai.

Great trail! unfortunately went in August so the falls was just a trickle. So if you're hiking for the falls, you'll be disappointed! They are very small in comparison to the beauties further north on Hwy. 138!

great trail, well maintained. I'm glad I didn't bring my 2 young children as it would have been too hard for them. Definently not stroller/toddler friendly.

It’s an easy 1.4 mile hike definitely recommend, I took my 6 year old and he loved it.

Most of the path is on a bridge, which is beautiful and then it ends in a little field that goes around the water. Lots of ducks and wild life. No dogs allowed though. love it

Ok old growth trees

It’s a neat boardwalk that goes over the water.

Bring good company

Easy hike. It’s pretty short but you can do multiple loops if you want something longer.

Very quiet, Dogs are allowed off leash which is cool. Only issue was the trail markings were a little hard to understand. There are multiple trails a long the route and it’s confusing because you don’t know if it comes back to the original trail. Ended up walking for about two hours and just turned around so I knew I would get back at my car haha. Also very maintained and moderate walk.
