Beautiful trail. I am NOT a hiker but this trail was a great hike.

went to find it today and did not see Gelly Rd.

Beautiful, not too difficult hike. Would definately recommend going!

Doc and I hiked all three trails that start from this trailhead, and, while this isn't a super-challenging wilderness adventure, I believe this is some of the best AR offers. The Lee Creek Reservoir is easy to find and get to, and you can't miss the trailhead. The trails are easy to follow, easy enough for kids, but still fun for someone in good shape. You'll see a waterfall (in season), neat geological features, great views of the reservoir, and get some history in as well.

As one reviewer noted (sort of), there is an abundance of ticks, even in January. Spray up, and do a thorough check of all participants when you get home!

This is a short, fairly easy trail in the Lee Creek Reservoir area. The other three trails are probably a bit more interesting, but this one definitely offers the best views.

The trail is easy to find and follow (you'll see it on the trail map at the trailhead for the Crack in the Rock and other trails). While 90% of the trail definitely warrants an "easy" rating, there's one very, very steep portion that might bump up the difficulty for some.

We followed the trail past the last, best viewpoint, but it just sort of faded.

Nice vista on Bodine Cemetery trail. Sparsely traveled. Paths were well marked for the most part.

Easy
