Loved it! Great waterfall views.

Beautiful hike. Part of the hike is very muddy right now but there are plenty of places to keep moving. A lot of dogs take the trails as well and is a nice place to walk your dogs.

I walk this with my dog all the time. I love it.

My family and I did this trail, 3 kids (11, 5, 5 ) and really enjoyed it. There are two waterfalls, some good size hills, and the last mile to mile and a half a long the river. We saw a pretty good size black snake which the kids loved and also saw about a 1000 baby frogs, and that's no joke. They were all over the trail.

I love this trail! Be sure to make the trip after some significant rain (I have been there when the falls were dry).
Most of the trail is shaded by trees. Old shoes are good because it can get muddy. If you take the path through the marsh there is a board walkway.
Keep an eye out...tons of birds flitting about & I did see a coyote the last time I went (he was more afraid of me & ran off).
Most of the trail is level, a few ups & downs, but on the map there is one part that says "steep hill". Trust them... it's steep. But if this 50 y.o., overweight woman can make it so can you!
And the view of the falls makes it all worthwhile.
My advise is to follow the trail to Martindale Fall. When you're done there stay on the high trail, then through the marsh & you will end up at Patty Falls. Then take the trail that goes under the roadway.
This trail is full of great photo ops!

Would be 5 stars if part of the trail didn't go on a road.

Well-maintained, well-marked, and beautiful! One decent incline/decline which is nice training for more rigorous trails. The path felt remote but is still very accessible, which is ideal. Went on a Friday afternoon and only saw two others besides myself. Only disappointing part is that the trail is completely flooded by the river and attempting to press on would mean soaking your shoes and socks up to the ankle or higher. No big deal though, as you can just take the White trail back out to the trailhead. Love this park!!!

Good trail. Rooty and rocky in some areas.

This was a very nice area for a run.

This trail is lovely! It's a nice little workout at almost 4 miles and gives you lovely views of 3 different waterfalls and different scenery. Great for the dogs as well. Highly recommended.

Such an amazing park, there are things for everyone here. Young old and everyone in-between. Lots of stuff to look at and the trails themselves are so well groomed. I would recommend this park to anyone. Also you can check out my video log of this park here. https://youtu.be/Pb9wRpfHOA4

This is a very easy trail for families. I have hiked this trail several times. It's great payoff is a very cool waterfall/ gorge half way though. My 4 and 8 year kids old were able to negotiate the gorge fairly easy, making for a great family outdoor afternoon.

Was still flooded on the green trail and under water for portions of hike we could not cross. Overall a good day of hiking with my big sis.
