A great trail for a light run. Decent elevations, not too grown over, and a view of the lake during certain seasons. Only found one trail head that is sort of obscure. Not much parking. Otherwise, a great option.

Nice trail easy for the kids

I'm not sure I did this whole trail. There are a few discrepancies in the actual signs posted and the info here. We were looking for the loop trail (not Kings Chapel) and map coordinates took us to Terrell trail which landed us at the Kings Chapel grave yard. From there we took the rest of the Kings Chapel Trail loop to go back to the road. Really pretty trail. I personally would rate it more easy than moderate. We'll do this one again in the future and hopefully sort out some of my confusion.

My son and I had a great time hiking this and another trail. not to much wildlife but it was the middle of the day, however we did see deer tracks. I have to agree that the signage could have been better, also parking, we saw trailhead signs but no pulloffs, we did see where other vehicles had pulled off on the side of the road and we did the same. Overall 4stars.

I was pleasantly surprised by this trail. The path is clear and marked really well. The creek at the end is really pretty. We'll hike this one again.

Nice, long, relatively easy hike. The trail was clean and the scenery was pretty. You'll cross two wooden bridges and end at where the water flows off of the mountain, into the lake. My husky loves when we finally make it there, he starts going crazy as soon as he can hear the water flowing. It's our favorite trail in the park.

OK trail. A few good size trees have fallen over the trial at several points. The latter half of the trail was overgrown. Good change of elevation throughout.

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.

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.
