So this trail is better for Mountain Biking than hiking. Although still one of the best choices if you are going to hike second to Magic Carpet Ride for the view from the top. Rock City has a small waterfall on it also.

peaceful hike and good trail to take kids on.

A beautiful,easy hike in late February. Weather was great, plenty of wildlife roaming around. Good scenery which we enjoyed. I’d recommend if your looking for a fun, easy hike.

beautiful waterfall

Peaceful hike, then the wolves began howling and made it even better!

Great hike for beginners. Beautiful views. And love the story before "lovers leap"

beautiful hike to the falls..leaves were turning.The trail was wide and in good shape..it ran along the river..nice rest area just before the falls with a picnic area and bathroom which was clean.Will for sure do this trail again in the spring.

good way to tire out the dogs, and it was very pretty!

depends on if your hiking or biking. As a hike i would rate it a 1. its all flat so its makes a great walk for a begginer and you do hrt to see the beautiful lake but the reason for a low rating is because it is right beside the highway and you can hear it very well and also you can hear the airport, planes leaving. the trail is small, just big enough for a bike. If you are goung biking then this is a great trail

Great place to take kids to play in the creek.

All I found were Forrest roads. The description says camping but there were very few places you could even use to camp. Nothing to see but a steep wall on one side and a steep drop off on the other. We drove forever and just pulled off onto one of the few places you could actually pull over and set up for the night. Left as soon as we got a break in the rain. Very disappointing after visiting Pisgah National Forrest trails in NC.

Excellent hike for kids or just an easy yet fun trek for anyone. Well manicured public park, would recommend starting about 4pm on a hot day, Shaded trail but the swimming hole is warm and refreshing as it sees sun all day!

Excellent place for easy hike with river, 2 waterfalls and many swimming possibilities. It also start with a swinging bridge. Wildlife and wildflowers are also abundant.

This is part of Big Cedar Creek Trail https://www.alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/virginia/big-cedar-creek-trail
And the Big Falls is actually Big Cedar Creek Falls.

love natural tunnel. have hiked, walked and swam there for years. nice camping area. we ha e our annual work picnic at the park.

Nice hike once you get on the trails. Beautiful waterfalls

I live locally and frequent this trail often. one of my favorite get aways!

Been there twice and enjoyed both hikes! Beautiful scenery and a nice little workout to boot! Good for beginners and experienced hikers!

Loved the scenery and the lore.

Easy, short stroll to reconstructed log cabin. Good when combined with Natural Tunnel trail.

Loved this trail. Not very difficult, but still challenging. Good for hiking and taking your dog with you.

Very pretty and quiet. Just the sounds of the river
