This is a wonderful 2.5 mile trail to hike. It had good elevation and turns with very good trail markers. The dense trees provided a perfect canopy on a hot, humid morning. We wished we had time to hike the entire trail. To get to the trail entrance, follow the golf course signs to the practice area and first tee.

Enjoyed it

We enjoyed kayaking and then hiking to the waterfall. Very pretty. I did unknowingly get into some poison ivy so be aware that it’s along the path to the waterfall.

This was our last stop after packing up the campsite before heading back home. The thick vegetation and rock formation literally made it feel like we were hiking back in time. Very prehistoric looking. Creation falls was gorgeous. Lots of people we wading in the water. We dd see some snakes down by the water so keep an eye out. The arch was one of the prettiest I've seen. But all and all it was an easy and fun hike! There is a picnic area at the top of the trail head with drills and picnic tables also! You could definitely make a whole day out of this area depending on how long you play around the waterfall and pool at the bottom.

Easy but interesting hike with lots of little rocks passages and foot bridges to make things interesting. Some views of the valley and Harrod's creek. Passed by two swinging benches in shaded areas. Friendly passerby.

Busy trail but good for early mornings and to connect to Swift Camp Creek

Nice paved trail. Started at Beckley Creek park and rode out to Floyd's Fork. Beautiful morning for it. First time on this trail but it won't be my last.

Beautiful hike with lots of good views. My dog really enjoyed playing in the river. We took the blue trail to the orange. Orange is a lot hotter with little shade but its short. My only caution is that there is a LOT of poison ivy so kids should be watched carefully!

Very nice trail! A great workout for our family of 5, (13 yo, 10 yo, 8 yo). All sweating and ready to take the shortcut loop on trail 2, which after a mixup on where we were supposed to start ended up being 3.5 miles. Wish we could’ve seen with full creeks but nothing trickling during our visit.

nice family hike. stairs at beginnig could be slick. paved gravel top most of the way

Easier than I was expecting with lots of benches and seating. I stopped to read by the creek about half way through and still finished in about an hour and a half.

love this place. so peaceful and great workout for me. perfect length and test of physical fitness. Would definitely recommend as ive been going for over 10 years now. Beautiful waterfalls and great view if you hike to the top. dog friendly and low traffic. there is a easy paved walking trail at top for those who cannot complete hiking trails and there is seperate rd to this. also easier trails across rd with ponds and creek that is a peaceful quiet setting and has picnic tables.

Great little hike with our puppy. He loved splashing around in the shallow pool at the base of the falls.

David and I decided to go even tho the forecast called for more rain. It turned out to be a good day for hiking with no rain. We left the parking lot at the trail head and went on the western loop. We had read that the eastern loop was more flat and dry. The whole trip of 10.8 miles was mostly level with a mild hill here and there. One thing that was relayed to us that was correct was the muddy condition. They have had a lot of rain lately and the trail showed it. There was good water in every creek crossing which is not usual. There was also three small ponds along the way. I carry a filter always and on this hike I could have left the bigger water container at the truck. On this hike I must say that the eastern part of the loop was a lot more muddy. The maintenance personnel had done a good job of keeping the trail open. The night before we hiked this area had a little wind. There was several small limbs across the trail but nothing that caused any trouble for us. The trail had been mowed within the last two or three days so for the most part the trail was in good shape. There are ticks out there. I used deet and did not have one on me. David did not use deet and had at least four. I liked the fact that we had the option of making the trip shorter if we ran out of time. Another good point for this trail is you are in an area that has several wild caves close by. On a future hike we may make this hike in one day then camp and the next day do a cave trip. Lots to do in this area.

This is a nice hiking trail its a pretty easy hike my wife and i hike it a lot. Love that you can pick from 3 miles if you take the shortcut to around 9 miles if you do trail #2 and #3 so you can get the links of hiking trail that is right for you.

This was a really great hike! My family loved it, and my 82 year old grandma was even able to make the trek because of how well maintained it is! In parts when the downhill or uphill is steep, stairs are carved out of rocks to make it more accessible to everyone. Definitely recommend!

Hiked this trail before finding this app. Trail #3 is a nice trail. It passes through some virgin timber, along several sinkholes, caves, and has plenty of ups and downs. The trail markings where it intersects with Trail #4 can be a bit confusing. Nice trail overall.

Beautiful

A MUST see trail when hiking the gorge! We took our dog with us on this easy trail. The trail takes you to this beautiful waterfall and swimming hole and our dog loved every second of it! This is the perfect place to take your kids, just make sure to pack a lunch and some swimsuits because you will want to stay and relax for a while!

Nice and easy trails. Was a beautiful hike. Will definitely be coming back.

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.

Great trail!
