Very nice area. I got a great workout in only about an hour. Caution: Mosquitos were horrible. I received 16 bites. Wear long sleeves and use plenty of insect repellant.

Beautiful scenery and those stairs will get you. I found several carnivorous plants. The kids loved playing along the edge of the Creek.

A quick hike. Compared to most of the local trails, it feels remote: once you're a quarter of a mile in, you don't hear anything but the creek. The trail and the stairs up the bluffs are well maintained.

Considering the location (surrounded by neighborhoods) it's a very nice trail. Good variety and inclines. Great for getting out for a short hike when you only have an hour or so to spare.

Had cabin fever and this was trail was nearby, had driven past the trail head many times and had heard the bluffs were higher than at Hemlock Bluffs. Access is next to pump house on Holly Springs road, from Lochmere Birkhaven subdivision or from the cart path at Lochmere Golf Club. Trail is short but offers a lot of variety - flat along Swift Creek, and wooden steps lead up to the top of the bluff and then back down the other side. Since it was winter, you could easily see the creek way below the bluff from the top through the trees. Interesting short hike.
