Should have read Marshal's review. Everything was peachy until we reached the waterfall rocks. What the actual hell. We finally backtracked to the road and called it a day.

Such a good trail! So shady and clean trails! I'll be going back soon!

The trail was very poorly marked and somewhat overgrown once you got to the cascade part of the trail. As a result there were several times that we got off the trail and had to backtrack two or 3 times. The biggest problem is I was following the trail on my phone but at the bottom where you start up the hill and along the rock where the water should flow, the trail indicated here is not accurate. The line follows the rocks/water flow but the trail actually only crosses the path and then heads uphill north of the path and somewhat parallel to the rocks for a while then heads north to the "bear cave" and runs in the middle of the loop.

Fun trail. We saw plenty of deer tracks and birds. There were a couple nice views of the lake and creek.

Pleasant walk in Fall. The scenery is pleasant, the trail is well worn.

Nice loop trail with easy access. Nice views of the lake, and rock structure.

Beautiful easy hike.

The park's map mileage is off, listing this as 3.1 miles. My Garmin tracked it at 4.1. It's moderately marked well, with a few turns leading to a bit of confusion. Still, this was an enjoyable hike with some elevation. My 9 year old son enjoyed it and had no problems.
