    went with the church youth group. Good for an afternoon hike. Not the most scenic trail I've hiked, but good for groups with varying experience or for a casual hike.

    This trail is not recommended for summer time hiking, which is when I went. The trail is sandy through marshy area. The bugs are abundant during the summer so bring bug spray, sunscreen and plenty of water. I am sure this trail would be pleasurable in the fall and winter months. Plenty of birds to observe on the hike. The trail begins near the picnic pavilions and ends at the campground. If starting at the pavilions, I recommend hiking 2/3 of the trail and then back track. My mother-in-law and children did this while I completed the trail at the campground. You either have to retrace the trail or walk down the side of the road back to the end of the trail you started from. I was fortunate that an elderly couple were sitting outside their RV and he offered me a ride back to the beach and pavilions.

    The distance is listed as 2.9 miles. It is actually a 5.8 mile hike. Once you reach the falls at 2.9 miles the only way out is to retrace your steps back down the trail which doubles your mileage. So make sure you have made time for a 6 mile hike.

    Great hike with very low traffic. But the directions to get there that are given are sketchy. The trailhead is off of 285 and not where Google maps directs you. I would consider it a moderate hike for older children and adults. But it gets steep in certain areas so small children might not do as well. The trail gets very muddy in some low areas if there has been much rainfall recently. All in all a good hike for someone looking for a trail that is not overly traveled since its a new addition to Fall Creek Falls State Park.
