Nice easy hike along bluffs. The trail is mostly flat. Two small waterfalls and a shallow stream when we were there. Will be back in June with our grandson.

A very nice hike after the first 1.5 . It was pretty muddy on the trail back but still liked the hike and the features.

Moderate trail with lush vegetation, some parts have a moderate incline. The cave is a pretty cool spectacle to see. Lots of big trees and rock cliffs, Creeks, wild life are just a few things to see. Interesting would do it again in the winter to see what frozen sculptures nature has created.

This may be one of my family’s favorite trails, yet. It’s perfect for the kiddos and the cave halfway through was awesome! We could have spent an entire day at the cave before ever coming back. We’ll definitely be back. This whole park is amazing!

Love this trail, once you figure out how to navigate it, it’s a breeze. I don’t know what it is about Fern Clyffe but it smells so good! Word of caution though, if it’s the wet season be ready to cross some water and get your feet wet!

Super peaceful atmosphere. No trash anywhere to be found. Beautiful ferns and pines.

Trail was easy to follow and an easy hike! there are starting to be some leaves on the ground so you'll want to be careful of your footing in areas with lots of roots. There are several good places where you can climb up on the rocks that makes this harder and more fun!

A very short, easy trail to a small canyon. It looks like there might be a small intermittent waterfall at the end when it isn't so dry. The stream and falls were dry when I visited. I noticed a sign indicating a rock climbing and repelling area near the trailhead if that's what you are into.

A mostly easy loop path, with several minor ups and downs and a few rocky areas to walk through. The main features are a couple shelter bluffs. One was fairly deep and the over was very high.

Pretty little trail. Very flat and easy. It is a wide path, well maintained that extends through a forested canyon to a intermittent waterfall on the far end. The waterfall was and stream was dry when I hiked it, but it was still a very pleasant walk.

Beautiful trail with several bluff-top overlooks. Hike proceeds along a cliff face and a stone bluff shelter. Some of the inclines get fairly steep and rocky for an "easy" trail. I would tend to consider it borderline moderate.

When we reached the part that it split 3 ways, we took the middle road labeled "Food Crops" and the rest of the way we followed the horse trail since that matched the trail on the app. After the first 1.5 miles, the trail becomes more fun to navigate. Near the end, it does however flatten and widen out again into a road. The creek was merely puddles here and there in the deeper sections. I bet it's gorgeous with the water!

If you google Ferne Clyffe waterfall and if the googlemaps or gps takes you to a dirt road then you are at wrong location. Instead search for FC State park and then keep following the picnic area directions (signs do not have arrows...one sign board has one arrow at the very end and other sign board has small font under picnic area stating go straigh ahead...it is easy to miss unless you stop and read it carefully). Once you enter picnic area there are tons of picnic tables...keep going all the way to the end until you reach cul de sac area and then you can park near that picnic area and there are 4 different trails.... Big Rocky Hollow Trail (waterfall) was decent hike unfortunately no water... second hike which we did was Hawks Cave Trail (caves)...this trail is loop and you have cross the caves and then there is a way which is not very clearly visible..

Great trail very easy

Beautiful, easy trail, with great payoff at the end- a beautiful waterfall (note that the falls are rain dependent, so don't count on them if it has been dry). Going slightly off the main trail is very rewarding- you quickly learn how Ferne Clyffe earned it's name.

Family friendly trail- our two year old loves this trail. Picturesque rock formations and many great photo opportunities during the walk. Well maintained and easy to follow.

Best hiked counter clockwise. First half of trail easy, then ends with hard, avg moderate. Second half has several tall staircases and is far more scenic with bluffs.
