Love this trail. Lots of different terrain, different scenery, and mostly shaded, all for a relatively short hike. Last time, brought guests, and was turned away by a ranger since parking was an issue. Be prepared for some wet/slippery sections when you choose your footwear. Some people wear flip-flops and crocs everywhere, I guess.

Tree down on rhododendron trail right before Phites Eddy trail had us bushwhacking a bit but otherwise a great trail.

Will go again and finish the loop. I took my two year old and golden doodle which was over ambitious considering the conditions. Next time I will just take my toddler and focus on her. The rocky and steel conditions can make it hard to watch a toddler and dog at once with numerous people around. Parking is scarce, so get there early or later in the day. Beautiful trail and the Tacquan creek is super stellar!! Great holes for swimming too. The views are breathtaking and serene. Go see it but be aware it’s a nature preserve so leave it as you saw it upon arrival. I’ll go again but won’t make it a usual thing as nature persevere are not meant to have high foot traffic.

Not bad has a little of everything very easy to follow

We went here just for a few hours and it was great! Just beware it’s really slippery and the water feels like ice.

Great hiking fun for the whole family. Some steep parts for my 6 year old, but she was fine throughout the hike. Plenty of great scenery and falls to pause and watch throughout the hike and a lot of swimming holes for the kids to jump in and cool off. We will definitely be back for future hikes.

The trail is not well marked and parts of it are closed. it can be confusing especially where it intersects with other trails. The title is misleading as you're actually on a handful of different trails. I had to use AllTrails quite often to make sure I was going the right way and to find ways around closed or overgrown trails. Ultimately it ended up being over a 4 mile hike. Also, it's not very visually stimulating. There are some nice, small stream crossings but that's about it.

We hiked this today! Beautiful setting, hiking one side of creek and back the other side. We had to take our time with many rocks and roots to navigate, but that just makes it all the more fun!!

Great trail with moderate inclines and declines, great for the beginner!

After breakfast, The wife and I rode into the park. This is a great little loop that features the Cascade Falls, A climb on part of the Ridge Trail and a flat easy 2 miles up and back to the Bloede Dam Project. The dam is being removed. Super nice weather and the park was once again crowded. Limited parking due to half of the park still closed due to flood damage.

My absolute favorite trail. A little of everything... a meadow, a creek gorge, a gorgeous old bridge, views of the river and a dam... and more. Will keep going back

Great for a mid-spring hike. Nice to walk by the water and watch the off-shore fishing and ponies. The campsite has a great view of the Bay and a few fire pits with plenty of fallen trees for firewood. We hiked in early morning and arrived to the campsite around mid-day and it was great to have half a day to explore the Bayside before hiking out the next morning. Great easy hike.

Had a blast on this trail with my 8 and 13 year old daughters. Was pretty muddy when we went tho but it made it more fun in a way lol. Sliding and trying not to fall lol.

Small lovely waterfalls with water holes- large enough to relax during the hot summer months. Great area to hike/take pictures any season.

Most of the trail was in the woods, but also had an open field which was really pretty. Awesome little pools of water from the creek flowing down to the river that was fun for my dogs to get in. Would hike again.

Plan to arrive early if you want less people around and prepare to get your feet wet crossing the stream to get better views of the waterfall. Cool place!

Easy hiking but beautiful trail

nice trail..great pics to come

Poorly marked. No distance information. No maps even though trail is $5 out of state. Don't veer off the marked trail....EVER...very difficult to find your way back to the main trail. Will pass coming back here.

beautiful trail, but not marked well. got lost lol.

Love this hike. Second time doing it Nd we went backwards which made it so much nicer. Great for the whole family (fur babies too) and lots of water for hot days!

Great place to hike during the hot summer!

Great day hike. Enough to work up a sweat but enjoy a nice loop and some great views of the river along the way

Cool trail, but I found it extremely heavily trafficked. I felt like I was on some kind of tour. There was always someone right in front or behind you. I did go on a Sunday during the summer, so perhaps it wouldn’t be so busy during fall. There were a lot of kids in the water, and honestly I felt like a tourist. The trail was very dog friendly for active dogs. There were a lot of spots for me to veer off trail and take tasteful nude Instagram photos.

This hike is really special. Just a beautiful walk along rocky hills, plunging (though small) waterfalls, and through lush forest and meadows. The “difficult” rating by the County Conservancy is probably accurate, but the trail is not too challenging; you probably want to be in decent shape if you expect to enjoy the entire loop, however. Lots of stream crossings and wet, slippery rocks, so bring proper footwear.

this is a great place to hike! I've gone here a couple of times with my family and had a great time every time!

This was my inaugural trail with AllTrails app, and I was so happy I had it. Is a beautiful setting, forested, lightly used trail, but the trail wasn’t marked well. There was a dried up water way that looked like the trail so we followed it. Thankfully, my map on AllTrails showed me how far off we were. We back tracked and kept going. You can hear beautiful song birds and see wildlife. I had my 3yo with me and I thought it was easy enough for him to do most of the time.
