Did the north end from 1956 to I-75 exit 49. Family of 5 11 yr old and it took us about 3 hours. Lots of scenic views and fairly nice trails.

Unmarked trail for as much as I could tell. You hike down the gravel road a little farther then I would have liked then the actual dirt trail is on the left. It’s not marked so you’d miss it if you’re not using the GPS. The trail down to the look out is great. Very easy. Pretty views from on top of the arch. We struggled to see a way to the bottom of the arch. Followed what looked like a rough trail that is to the left before you walk our on top of the arch. We slid down a small rock face and that put us on the bottom. Well worth it. There could be other ways to the bottom but I didn’t have luck seeing too many. The view of the arch is very beautiful. It was challenging to get down and up from the bottom so just be prepared to go off trail or sliding on your rear a little as it was pretty steal. My very experience dog did fine. I wouldn’t take kids to the bottom or dogs not brave enough to go through the rough and do a little climbing. It is steep. Be careful.

Varied terrain with lots of pretty views. The falls were beautiful but my favorite part was crossing Cane Creek. The trail was covered with water or leaves in a couple spots because of the season but it was well maintained and easy to follow. Definitely more markers on the way back out than the hike in.

Trail was well marked. Took two of my sons, ages 13 and 12, and they did great!

If you begin on the southern portion (counterclockwise, following the river), some lengthy switchbacks make the climb up from the river a bit more laid back.

The different overlooks and points-of-interest are very well spaced across the trail. Leave room for plenty of down time to enjoy them :)
