    Vanessa Dupree reviewed Crabtree Falls Trail

    6 months ago

    I absolutely love and hate this trail! If you can get up the first third of the uphill you will do just fine the rest of the way. The stairs were tough for me. There are beautiful views of the falls along the way up. There is also a nice spot to rest and have a picnic at the top. The trail is busy and lots of people bring dogs. I saw some wild life on the trail, including a ring neck snake, a skink, tadpoles in some standing water, hawks flying at the top, and I may have heard a rattle snake. Good times, but grueling if you’re out of shape.

    Hiked most of the trail one way as a connection from Torrey Ridge trail back to Sherando Lake where we were camping last year. Nice trail. There are a few spots where you cross some streams, it is easy enough to walk across them if you are wearing boots.

    My family hiked this trail on our way back to White Oak campground in a circuit that included the Tobacco House Ridge trail and Blue Suck Falls Trail. In all we hiked 5 miles total. The trails in Douthat State Park are very well maintained. My only complaint is that some of the signs were a bit confusing. Be sure to take the park trails map with you. See the picture of the confusing sign we encountered on our hike.

    More of a stroll through the gardens. Nevertheless, beautiful at Christmas time with the lights, & train & dollhouse exhibits.

    Super busy on the weekends. Easy walk. Check out the visitor's center with local wildlife education & exhibits.

    Pretty easy hike. Nice wildlife views and some of the trail is elevated above the marsh.

    Busy hike, mostly from the parking lot up to the peak. Otherwise, not too bad. Great views and photo opportunities!!!

    This was the 2nd leg of a 3 part hike we did in 1 day starting and ending at Big Meadow campground. Great view of the falls, heavily trafficked and very strenuous uphill for anyone out of shape.

    I hiked this a few years back with my husband and 3 year old son. This was the first hike I had ever done and being out of shape, this hike was difficult, but I made it. My 3 year old enjoyed it too!

    I hiked this trail in conjunction with the Slacks trail connecting to Torry Ridge trail, and Sherando Lake trail to equal about 10.5 miles. My family started in Sherando Lake and hiked up to Torry Ridge over to Slacks, & then White Rock. There were multiple streams that you will cross and I had to take my shoes off for 2. My husband had waterproof boots and he was fine. The rushing water was beautiful and cold on May 30th, when we hiked.

    Great wildlife views! The deer practically walk right up to you. Easy trail. I would take this trail from Big Meadows campground to the visitor center & on to Big Meadow.

    Hiked this in the rain a few years ago. We couldn't see the falls because it was so foggy! We took the switchbacks back up to the AT and hiked back to Big Meadow that way. There were definitely signs of bears along the way.
