Explore the most popular trail running trails in Cloudland Canyon State Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Grew up in Trenton and Cloudland Canyon is the main reason I go back to Trenton since moving. The views are spectacular, plenty of trails, waterfalls, disc golf, a lot of area to cover, definitely worth visiting multiple times, especially in the spring and fall.

Did this trail back in March, wonderful views and long enough for a great workout.

A great hike to do and the overlook spots had beautiful views.

Very good trail. 2.6 miles and worth the effort! Watch out for a lot of roots along g the path though. I'd give it a moderate rating.

Gorgeous!! The hike would be classed MODERATE as rated. Mainly because of the roots and rocks one has to navigate on virtually the whole trail. The views are incredible and we caught the Fall foliage just at the right time!! November 3rd was a perfect day for our hike. I recommend this to all my hiking friends.

Beautiful and a good hike with some challenging parts! Crowded at the beginning/end. Do the waterfalls trail while you’re there!

Great overlooks. Beautiful fall colors Nov 4th. We got there about 1030 and not awful crowded but on the way out near the beginning of the trail lots of hikers just arriving. Glad we came on the earlier side! Took us a little over 2 hours. This trail has some ups/downs but a good deal of fairly level walking too. Definitely lots of roots and rocks.

Wow! Beauty all around but it was definitely a Moderate hike. So many rocks and roots to navigate along the way but worth it. Just have to take your time. The water, rock formations and multiple lookouts were spectacular. Leaves were peak so lots of people. Go early and you might get some peaceful moments!

Tough to beat!

Great trail! Stayed there this past weekend (1 night) and was impressed! Really enjoyed the layout of the trail and the campsites. The sites are spread out and very spacious. Absolutely going back.

Scenery is absolutely amazing! The overlooks are breathtaking.

Nice easy trail. Well marked with nice camp sites.

Great hike with beautiful scenic views. The stairs are the only real challenge.

Very pretty overlooks . Rocks are gorgeous. Also beautiful sunsets here .

Great trail with lots of variety ie. Waterfalls, streams, big rocks, beautiful overlooks.

Awesome, the stairs to the falls was tough.

I agree with a previous reviewer. An easily moderate trail for sure and I say more than easy only because of the stairs. Only recommendation I would give is to wait until beginning to mid October whenever the leaves start to turn and the trees aren’t grown up as much for the many overlooks. Overall I loved this trail and I didn’t even trek down to the falls.

Need to plan next time to stay here and maybe stay in one of the yurts. Only got to do the loop and one of the falls - Cherokee. So need to go back and do the other trails and falls.

Nice hike! I added the waterfalls at the end of the loop. Those stairs are a workout! Definitely would return.

Nice, well marked trail. Lots of shade.
