Huge Wasp nest near slot to pay entry fee. Got a $100 (!) ticket for not paying. Would avoid until they get rid of wasp nest. Money hungry state trying to suck every last penny out of us. And you know that ticket money is not going to making the Park better and getting rid of wasps.

Great walk. Nice views. The area is so lush that it hides a lot of great views. I enjoyed hearing running water the entire loop.

summer bugs are horrendous. fall and winter, early spring are better for hikes. Alot of wildlife to catch a glimpse of, trail gets elevated quite often, nature center has some cool stuff. The wildlife drive is always nice, keep the windows up or else its greenhead nightmare!

Fun trail with a lot of switchbacks... really great views, too!

Considering it’s just a few miles outside of the city it’s an amazing place to get away and go for a 3 mile walk or so. Actually ended up going fishing one time and had a great experience. Beautiful place to visit

not actually a loop. not well maintained

Did it in the rain so me and a friend had the whole trail to ourselves. Easy trail to navigate and not too challenging, other than the river and a small waterfall there isnt much to see, still a must do if in the area.

The fallen logs had been neatly placed off the trail and two people were working on parts of the trail today. They were friendly. This was a nice trail with a lot of variety. My Golden loves it too!

One of my new favorite hiking places! We hiked on the red trail which was the river trail, led us right to a stream and then the gorgeous River, lots of falls and streams, and I love how the picnic tables are placed all over the trail on the river, we packed a lunch and literally ate on an island on the stream near a waterfall.. We will ref be coming back!

Lovely trail and a good walk. Great for experiencing the seasons! If you're into hiking year round- this trail is great. Awesome views in summer and spring, beautiful in the fall, and great to experience winter. Common place to see dog walkers and joggers as well as waterfowl!

Lovely trail along the Lamington (?) River. Good vertical makes this a moderate trail.

Perfect for first timers!

What is this? No one calls it by this name. Forbidden Drive is a popular trail here.

Good trail and easy to access. We went on one of the first warm weekends of the year and the parking lot was packed. Be ready to have lots of company on the trails. It was heavily used by mountain bikers and people with pups. (We had our two pups leashed and all but one dog we passed was also leashed.) We also had our two year old with us and she was able to hike with us (with assistance of course.)

There are several trails and you can loose your way pretty easily. But if you follow the river you will find your way back eventually. Very pretty. A lot of foot/bike traffic.

This is a really great trail. Has information on tons of bird species with viewing platforms. About halfway through it tells you exactly where the eagle nest is. The boardwalk over the water is a really nice touch that I haven’t come across in any other parks in the area. A lot of the park is also handicap accessible.

The trail was a little hard to find at first..but another kind hiker told me to stick by the river and I would find the waterfalls..awesome views. Can't wait to return.

Nice loop trail with views. You can get down to the river and away from weekend crowds. Overall nice hike but not secluded.

Wear hiking shoes, it’s rocky in many places. Beautiful lookouts over the river in the first 10 minutes of the hike. Staying left on the trail and taking it clockwise will take you along the high portion of the trail first and on the way back, following the loop, takes you lower along the river.

Fun and a nice workout.

Smells great. The smell of leaves from these trees makes it very pleasant.

I went here for a dayhike in 2016. Easy walking, close to city.
