One of my favorites. Bring waterproof shoes or extra socks. My four year old did great on this trail, there’s lots to climb. Fairly busy but we went on a Saturday afternoon.

Beautiful, short, shaded, clean beach and less crowded

easy path with some excitement stomping through the creek.

I go here regularly for the bird watching. There are also turtles, otters, and wonderful wildflowers.

Trail was about 0.3 miles. Waterfall spot was nice but nothing too exciting. Most of the upper area has been blocked off because people used to jump and injure themselves.

my favorite trail. I live in the area and always love going to this trail. its busy but worth it. wish people would stay off the waterfall (as there is a sign that says u can't go on it) so it can be there years from now

The trail itself was pretty mild and easy. I was able to complete it with two dogs. The steps down to the beach were a little steep but the dogs managed it well. Definitely worth the trip!

Nice hiking trail, beautiful lake. Has some nice lake outlooks but does not follow close to the lake. My 60 some year old parents were able to walk it easily. Not very busy, went on a weekday and did not see anyone else on the trail.

Arrived early and had the place to ourselves. Trail starts out easy and then you encounter rocks to get to the waterfall. Still easy going climbing around the rocks and worth it to get to the waterfall. Great place to photograph..

Short but interesting

Very easy and quick walk 40 minutes round trip. Go early. The beach gets packed with boaters.

About a 20 min hike, one way. Actually got a jogging stroller about 95% of the way down trail. Last 500 feet are down steep set of stone steps. Reward is worth it. Go early. We had the place to ourselves for awhile until a pontoon boat pulled onto shore and ruined the view. Small, labeled parking lot off river road. In the morning the beach is shaded. We waded in the river for a bit. Water seemed clean. Nice sand beach with fine sand and few rocks. Entry into river is not rocky and smooth.

Very short hike with a nice swim at the end in some chilly water.

Wear water shoes and walk in the water back to the falls. Nice wide and paved trailhead. Short hike, but very fun and pretty.

Easy and short hike! The beach is pretty and the water appears to be very clean so swimming is good! Would go back.

Two nice trail loops. Saw more owls than other people.

My absolute favorite. So beautiful, so serene.

It’s worth it, not sure why it’s rated moderate, it’s easy and a 2 year old was able to finish 0.9 mi

First of all we were one group of many we saw this day looking for the trail head. It's ridiculous to find. We started up this hill that was definitely not the trail but it's a small trail of some kind. Your signs are screwed up here and you seriously need to fix them! Other than that it's a nice trail. Beautiful in some parts

Really nice--really long easy trail head for hikers with limitations. Once beyond this point, be prepared to rock hop through the actual glen.

Beautiful trail!

I love this trail, but the area has been recently closed due to young people jumping off the rocks into the water. If DNR catches you out there, be prepared for a $200 fine for trespassing.

I really adore this trail, it is beyond what I expect,we went with the hike it baby group and enjoyed the wild flowers, butterfly and the waterfalls was gorgeous, the trail is moderate for new beginners,wear sandals or water proof hiking boots , bring hiking poles as you will need them to climb the boulders, parking gets fully pretty quick try to be there before 10am during the week, I was disappointed to see the bathing in that bed condition. But everything looked amazing in that trail

Nice trail - not a loop. Lots of trees, well marked.

Amazing! One of the best hikes I have done. We went after a rain storm and had to do a bit of jumping on rocks to get to the end. If you look up at the end you will see a way to go from the creek to the ridge above it. You can then walk on a trail above the waterfall on your way back for a different angle.

Underrated, definitely worth checking out.
