great trail. somewhat hard to stay on the right trail

We had some issues finding the orange trail and the signs are absolutely not helpful. The first half of the loop was aight, but the boulders were spectacular, and after we crossed the Natural Bridge we began to really enjoy the hike. The top of the world was a lot of fun to climb around and explore, and the hike back was lovely.

We hiked part of the blue trail up along the falls and it was busy, but beautiful.

If you take the orange trail all the way up to the 'top of the world,' you will have had a pretty good workout... the flat part of the trail up to the falls is great for dogs and kids However, the pleasant stroll turns into a hike at this point.

A lot of trees were down.

Dry waterfall and stream beds right now. Difficult to follow trails without this app. I wandered around on blue, red, and white trails.

Great hike! The online GPS tracking was a real timesaver and made our trip so much more enjoyable!

trail is overgrown in some places, definitely giving off the truth that it's one of the lighter used trails in Moss Preserve. Probably the steepest and most winding trails I've experienced there. The trail itself is fun to hike just based on the fact that it's a trail to hike but its name "high cliffs trail" (aka red trail) is misleading, and disappointing when you hike it expecting some sort of high cliff/waterfall/etc, only to discover it's named after the adjacent subdivision promptly named High Cliffs, and the once existing trail that led to the subdivision which looked to have had a decent view from atop, has been covered in by recent construction and Landscaping in the area, leaving much to be desired. But other than the fact it lacks any significant formations or features and has a misleading name, the trail itself was a good hike and is away from the main set of trails, allowing for some private and quite hike time!

Just for the fact that it feels huge and wide open when in actualitu it is surrounded by subdivisions on all sides and isn't that big, I give it a big thumbs up. Great place to take the dogs, or kiddos for a day hike, or just to get away and read a book in peace. Also is littered with climbable rock faces, for skilled climbers looking for a quick climb and beginners looking for something simple to get some practice on. For sure plan on going back very soon!

This place is very nice and an easy hike. Love the waterfalls and rocks.

Moss rock is a great trail for all ages. Keep going until you reach the falls!

Great for both the casual and semi-serious trailers!

Easy hike, cool waterfall, cool rocks to see and climb :)

Fun place to hike with awesome rock formations! Big dog and little dog love the streams and rocks to climb on. Always pretty crowded so not as enjoyable as it could be.

The trails extend much further than what the recent posts will lead you to believe. In the far northeast section by where the highway is, there are some beautiful waterfalls. The trails have been very well taken care of by a local Boy Scout troop. The trails were easy to hike and there were plenty of huge rocks along the way to climb on if you like a challenge. I would recommend this place for hikers of all experience levels.

I love this trail system. Parts are really difficult, and parts are easy. If you loop the entire preserve, it's 5 miles. Unfortunately, the great bridge that crossed the creek near the Simmons Middle School trailhead has been washed away. But as dry as it has been lately, taking the Orange Trail is no problem and there are several places to cross over to the Blue Trail or other trails without getting wet. I've placed pictures of the waterfall which right now is not much more than your kitchen sink! It's still a beautiful area.

Love this place, but there has been more and more trash being left behind. I was take a trash bag and gather up trash from the trail. They have trash cans at the entrance and down by the creek.
