Went early this October morning. Saw lots of deer and pretty views. Good hike.

This was a great trail. The uphill slope was a great workout and the falls at the end were beautiful. I think it is worth mentioning the mileage is slightly off as part of the trail is closed off and you must follow a trail detour down the road a ways.

Great hike up and down to the falls. Super crowded. Way too many people for my taste, not to mention the abundance of empty water bottles, cigarette butts, and the occasional diaper thrown in for good measure. Just a matter of time before the state shuts it down.

Went again awesome trail. Would love to go back when its changed more to fall colors.

The address on my GPS took me in a deserted gravel road close by the actual entrance. Don't give up if you have this same experience. From this wrong location turn back around and.take a left turn on the main road and you will see a clearly visible sign for the park entrance maybe 1/4 mile down the road. Well worth the extra time finding this spot. The hike is somewhat short but you leave with some gratitude of what you just experienced. The water cascades are breathtaking and the waterfalls is very unique. I highly recommend this hike.
The hike is clearly marked. We had no problem staying on course even with leaves scattered over the path.

Such a great trail system! Waterfalls, cascades, and running water around every corner! Looking to burn a few calories? Good, because most of the trail system is either up or down and is decently steep. Shoes/boots with good grip and waterproof is definitely recommended but not a total must. I will be back and will recommend it to everyone I meet! Happy explorations!

Trail wasn’t too busy, until we got close to the waterfall. Once we reached the stream, it was much more crowded. But very much worth our time!

Beautiful swimming hole. Perfect for a hot summer day.

This is a great paved walk to do with little ones. It is suitable for strollers. There are leaves on the ground and some sticks, so a jogging stroller is best so the ride would be smooth. A nice stream follows most of the path and you cross it on three old bridges. The pathway dead ends at a gate into Fort Knox. Going out is a very slightly uphill most of the way, but it's all slightly downhill going back to your car.

My 58yr old heavy set mother hiked to the overlook with no problem. I hiked to the base of the waterfall with my 2yr old niece and went swimming. The hike down was fairly easy, just watch your footing with tree roots and loose rocks. To cross the river we went up river to where it was only 2 feet to cross. You follow the river to get to the base. There are life jackets of all sizes for anyone to wear at the base. Amazing idea for people who can’t swim or have trouble. I put my niece in the children’s one and we swam for about 20min. I’d rate the hike down as a 1.5 and the hike up a 2.3 there’s some stairs and like 3 switch backs. The hike to the overlook is really easy that would be a 1. Overall an AMAZING hike! If you have bad ankles or knees it would be doable but would take you some time. If you are a moderate hiker this is a breeze.

Great little hike. The falls at the end depend on how much it rains.

Very cool short hike

Very easy to get to the overlook, but be prepared for climbing and water passes throughout to get to the base of the falls. Extremely crowded, but beautiful!

Great little hike. Fun time in the Blue hole.
Always a lot of people there.
Wear wet shoes. The Camp store sells them.
Great place on the weekdays when school is back in. Too busy for me otherwise. It is a great hike for the whole family.

A must do!!!!!

Did this a few years ago. Coming upon abandoned cabins and high bluffs along the Ohio is quite memorable.

Please take their advice and wear appropriate shoes! Flip flops aren’t going to cut it. Very short trail to the falls then about 1/4-1/2 mile back upstream to the falls and swimming. You will be scrambling over rocks and some are slippery. We were a group of 5 with varying levels of comfort but everyone enjoyed the swimming and the scenery.

The falls are truly beautiful, and the trail is clear and well marked. But it is rocky, wet, and steep in some areas - so definitely bring appropriate footwear. Unfortunately, the park is too crowded, and the heavy foot traffic made some parts of the trail (mostly the descent/ascent to/from the stream) really unsafe. Moreover, the trail leading down to the stream as well as the banks of it were full of trash. I’m fairly disappointed with the management of this natural resource. If you’re looking for a pristine hike, this is not it.

Great time. Short walk to overlook. Hike down to falls was fine, some areas slippery but water felt cool. It is worth the trip to the falls!

The way down and back up was fairly difficult because the trail was very narrow and had excessively too much foot traffic. And as soon as you reach the bottom to the river bed, walking along the river is not easy because at certain points you have to cross the river on very slippery rock, so MAKE SURE TO WEAR SHOES WITH GOOD TRACTION! After walking about half a mile you reach the falls, which are gorgeous, there’s plenty of room to sit and relax along with a deep swimming hole. Climbing to the higher rocks in the falls and jumping off was a huge rush!! So if you don’t mind the heavy population of people, large rock climbing, the view and water is 100% worth it!

took this trail today. this is actually the red cedar trail and part of the valley overlook trail. there are many other trails that are not listed in this app. Google otter creek park trail map to find a map of all of them.

This is my all time favorite place to hike and walk through the cascades. I’ve been every season of the year and it never disappoints!

Great hike with the kids. Once we were arrived to the water fall it was Amazing. I love coming here!

Took the boys 9&11 they loved playing in the creek all the way to the falls. it can get busy crowded but didn't affect our fun. seen many people from all different cultures.

We loved it!

Great hike. I will definitely do this trail again. However, it is confusing at the beginning. But once your in about 1/2 mile it’s very easy to follow the trail.
