Not what I expected

short hike with really nice views overlooking town.

Narrow path, wear appropriate shoes. Total loop is 1 mile. “Falls” are probably more dramatic after a rain.

Easy, brief hike with great views of the town.

Scenic trail with relaxing water sounds along the way up to the falls. I walked the loop clockwise and enjoyed the falls early in the hike. A fair amount of elevation increase going this way.
Definitely one not to miss!

A huge rock with a huge chain on it... pretty neat. Good trail with some awesome scenery at the end.

Great trail especially if you’re just getting into hiking. Lot of stairs to go up and down, so be prepared. Make sure to take plenty of water especially if you hike this trail like I did in the summer. It definitely is a moderate trail as it starts off easy, but when you start heading back, you can sure feel the hilly terrain getting back at you. Offhand, I loved it and will definitely do it again soon.

The trail is moderately difficult and would be challenging at times for someone that may have difficulty keeping balance. This trail provides great exercise and a pretty view of a waterfall. For anyone wanting the fastest way to the falls I posted a picture of the entrance you should take. Happy Hiking everyone

We parked by the zip line start and did this as a 1.8 mile lollipop with three young children. It's not cardio difficult but there is a fair amount of tree roots, rocks, and little steps. There were a lot of little bridges and caves along the way, along with some platforms and benches. The falls are on the west side of the loop so counterclockwise with a lunch stop at the falls made sense. All shaded. Light traffic.

Beautiful views, shaded on the trail and nice resting benches for the climb back up. Be prepared for some stairs.

Great hike, beautiful view, pretty easy but the going back up really gets you!

It's absolutely beautiful! Very clear streams and a lot of little bridges along the way. Once we got to the water fall, we rested and turned around and went back the same way. A lot of tree piles along the way as well.

Loved this trail! Great views from the rocks, and a shaded trail with pretty views on the way there. Make sure you're ready for the climb back up

Amazing view! Such a cool spot. I'm ridiculously out of shape (no exaggeration), so the uphill climb on the way back took a while, but was graciously helped by the strategic placement of benches along the trail (which often overlook interesting rocks or other pretty bits of scenery). This was our first trail using the app, and I'm hooked!

A great trail to hike on but the water fall had very little water running over.

Easy, accessible trail. Walkable for all skill levels with some stairs on the way back. The great view out on the rock is worthy of positive ratings, however the heavy traffic of this area means plenty of noise and litter.

Not for children/inexperienced hikers. Great for a workout and solitude. Steep stonecases and charming rock footbridges lead you through forest with gorgeous old trees and wild flowers. Features an arch, a creek to cool off and turns around at a nice picnic area/amphitheater.

Awesome but strenuous.

Was quite wet and muddy due to the recent rains. Def wear hiking boots and take a stick or pole.

Loved this hike! A little hard for my daughter who had knee surgery last year and she's 13. But all in all a good workout for sure. The water was a little low but still just an awesome sight to see and very peaceful.

This is a great hike. Very strenuous going all the way to chain rock but worth it. Easy coming back down.

Decent little hike. Has stairs for most of the steep parts. There's little shade on the rock so try and go when the sun isn't at its highest and hottest. It's as exciting as you'd think a rock chained to another is.

After my hike at Chained Rock Trail. I went to HM Trail before the spring forecast for a tornado. This is a nice trail that contains lots of ups and downs along the route. Trail is welled marked and cleared of downed trees.

Just got back from hiking this fairly easy trail. The climb onto the large boulder to see the 'chained rock' was somewhat disappointing as I did not see the said chain. It was a nice hike overall.
