So pretty. Be prepared to cross the creek.

Beautiful. Be careful in winter. I slipped on the rocks a few times.

This trail was beautiful today with the waterfalls frozen! It was a bit dangerous in places where the boulders are covered in ice and slippery.

Just did this trail and loved it! It’s not difficult from an elevation perspective but there are a few tricky spots to maneuver. This is different in that there aren’t any “overlook” areas like Garden of the Gods, but there are many beautiful rock formations along the way. Trail is really well marked.....just follow the blue markers.

Trail features the largest natural bridge in the Shawnee and a cool barren area. The ladder is probably the most efficient way to reach the top of the bridge.

The trail is difficult in some spots but for the most part it is easy walking..A few great rock formations and a natural bridge are among the highlights..Trail is marked well until it comes to a sudden. turn ..we got turned around a couple times but no big deal. Definitely worth your time to hike.

just went here, the forest service has done a lot of upgrades and remarking of trails great place

neat rock formations. definitely wear long pants as the trail has a significant amount of poison ivy along it.

Loads of trash, would be awesome if not for disgusting people.

Several different trails to choose from. Not too difficult. Enjoyable day. Don't go after a good rain, lots of slick spots with steep drop offs.

I feel like there were some difficult spots to hike through and the trails were easy to get lost from,but this trail had some awesome spots to stop and look around at the scenery.

This is a pretty difficult and, at times, treacherous hike. The trail was pretty clearly marked except where there were sudden turns. We, like many people, got lost twice. We saw a family making a risky climb up a fallen log to try to get back on the trail. The scenery was ok, but I'm not sure it was worth the risk. Jackson Hole was a MUCH nicer place to visit. I doubt we'll come back here.

Lengthy hike with unclear markings. Lost the trail a few times. Only a few high points. Definitely a trail I'll only hike once.

One of three official trails in Bell Smith. This contains the Devil's backbone feature. Shawnee forest is a great area to hike

Best hike in the park. Natural bridge and the steel ladder was the most fun.

The trail is poorly marked. It became a guessing game if I was actually on the trail.

There are some cool rock features here. Unfortunately trail markers are terrible and to see the arch and half of the cool stuff you have to ford the river as they haven't seen to build a bridge. The day I went it had rained and the river was up several feet and unfordable.
