Bring your GPS! Very poorly marked and confusing. There are lots of criss crossing trails and some places where you're not sure if you're on a dry river or a trail at all.

For the first two miles my trekking pole was used as a machete to clear the unbelievable amount of spider webs at eye level. This trail used to merge with an equestrian trail, and even though it no longer does, some signage and blazes have not been updated and are very misleading. The trail features amazing rock formations and plenty of other views.

Amazing trail, great rock scrambling!

Awesome outdoor playground. the walls similar to giant city are even better here because there are more caves and passageways to explore and poke into and through.

the only issue was trail was not marked very well (well at least the '371' you have to follow).. just before and to the bluffs, the only sign of trail marking is only markings to the river to river trail.

we only made sense of our bearings only with my gps, which helped me find our way back.

other than that kids had a blast exploring and poking around the caves and slot canyons

Path is not marked very clearly and with the different turns you can take it would be very easy for someone that doesn't know the trail very good to get lost.

Beautiful! I have always enjoyed hiking here. The only issue I have is a new issue... someone is riding horses through these trails.
This is one of the few trails I have found in this area that does not allow horses. I was very disappointed when I had to start dodging horse crap and massive holes made by horses. This has never been an issue and it makes me sad that Panther Den is being ruined by someone who doesn't have any respect for others.
A year ago I would have given this trail 5 stars, no question.... but it is with a heavy heart that I have to give it 3 stars.

Had to turn around due to lack of markings. Path not clear with lots of intersections.

Good trail up to the primary rock formations. If you go clockwise, the turn off the river to river trail is hard to find. Look for the older style sign on a post. I'd recommend counter-clockwise. It would be easier.

Lots and lots of spider webs. Came home sticky with them even waving a stick.

Back half of the loop is slightly overgrown, but the foot path was clear enough. Guessing most people walk out to the rocks then turn around.

Beautiful rock formations and walk by the creek. Many trails to explore and get lost... App definitely helps (we didn't get lost)
