Nice and easy. Bit muddy after the rain but that’s to be expected. Lake views.

Beautiful hiking trail with lots of rock cliffs, waterfalls as well as different birds to watch. I recommend this trail :)

Lovely trail! Super easy stroll. The trail does get a bit muddy but is easily bypassed.

Great hike with beautiful scenery the whole way. Bridge was awesome and just as enjoyable for adults as it is for kids. My son and I both had a blast.

Nice easy trail, mostly follows an old road. Nice views of the Big South Fork River. Great for little ones too. Take your time and explore the area.

Kid friendly and a great place for lunch just past the bridge

a chance to see different terrain, from lakeside to heavy wooded area. Overall nice trail.

Beautiful! Easy walk. We hiked this with about 3 inches of snow on the ground and snow still falling. The view was amazing. The forest was very pretty too! Easy enough that kids aged 7,6 and 4 were able to enjoy too.

A great trail with great scenery

Easy trail with a few steps. Beautiful overlook and then an easy walk to under the arch. Good for a quick adventure

Took my sister back for a day of hiking while the guys golfed, we loved it. At the point where the stream crosses a solid rock , the trail goes to the left and a 4 wheeler road goes through the creek bed, go to the right, you can actually see the falls from this side. Just be sure to back track to the trail. The view is amazing.

Nice variety of terrain and views of the lake. Recent storm left a lot of debris on the trails.

Great day hike! Streams and rocks made it more adventurous but still friendly for all ages. Beautiful views and flowers would be beautiful in the spring.

A beautiful hike. We started at the end by the inn and easily followed 8 out, coming back we jumped along several trails by the falls and on the loop back. Take a trail map! The route had some ups and downs and also some rocky areas and stairs We had two dogs along, and the stairs and rocks were challenging for our one with mobility issues in one back leg. But he made it and loved it! Saw a few tiny flowers and many others getting ready to bloom.

Great hike if your a beginner, but I would go in off of Martin’s Fork. It’s about 6 total miles. The day before we took Koomers Ridge and that was about 16 miles.
For me, as my first hike, my feet were not used to it.

My girlfriend, doggo, and I did this trail yesterday. We started on the Pinch-Em then took connector trail that connected with Gray's Arch about a mile before the actual. The Arch was awesome and jumps out at you out of nowhere, its great place for a snack/lunch break. The trail includes a couple of creek crossing, two descents via wooden stairs, and a mild ascent/descent. I would suggest this trail to anybody visiting the area looking a good day hike.

Be aware that if you are starting from Pinch-Em that the Tunnel Bridge Road is closed to cars, you can still walk across the bridge, it just adds about twenty minutes to your hike.

This was a tough hike not at a easy level. I would rate it moderate level. Beautiful scenery along the lake and mountain laurels.

Nice, easy hike that’s easy for the everyone to do. Even the kiddos can master this one. The creek was closed from the flooding when I went, but when you can access the creek, it’s fun to let the kids and dogs play around.

Regular hike of ours. Plenty of beautiful spots. Although, think twice about bringing small children and pets. The last part of trail over looking the lake is very close to the edge of the cliff. Other than that, would totally suggest.

Loved this little section of Sheltowee Trace!! We walked out to the suspension bridge and back. We walked around the creek and fund some really great camping spots close by. There was a small waterfall along the way which always makes for an exciting hike. Definitely going to use this a starting point for one of our Sheltowee Trace straight through hikes! Walking out was a lot easier than I anticipated it to be. The last ridge is the KILLER and you’ll know when you get there! Happy Hiking

If you are looking for a trail with some small hills, and by water- I would recommend this trail! about 5 miles long, good for a walk/run. after a rainy period, be aware that it does flood in some places.

Probably one of the prettiest hikes I’ve been on in a while. The suspension bridge is great, but there is so much more to see!

I would highly recommend this trail early spring or fall, the lack of foliage allows peak visibility of lake views. Better chance of water fall in the spring season. The trail was clearly marked with orange blaze, trees had been recently cut out of the path and we thought it was very well maintained. As novice hikers it was a perfect trail for us!

Nice hike. Water was raging so we didn't get to Lick creek falls. The recent rainfall had the water running over the rock houses which was extremely photo worthy!

This was a great hike with great rock formations and the water fall

Great trail. Simple and well maintained. Very easy, the trail it’s self wasn’t spectacular but there were several pretty views. Would and probably will do again.

8 is a great trail with lots of views of the gorge below. Clifty creek (trail 2) was running high and swift. I crossed it and did trails 3/4/5/6/7 to see all the falls and make a 9.5 mile loop.

Easy. Well marked & maintained. About 4.2 mi with spurs to Needle Arch & Slave Falls. Really nice hike with superb geology & water. Needle Arch very cool. Slave Falls is spectacular. Recommend going after a recent rain.
