Bathroom at main entrance Heavy traffic Moderate noise pollution The trails are well maintained dirt and rock paths with bridges and stairs for the steep climbs depending on the multiple trails you can take. This large route offers the sounds of birds and thick moss covered vegetation full of thimble berroes, trailing black berries and red huckleberry bushes all of which are getting close to being ripe. A great place to get some exercise, connect with nature, and enjoy the outdoors without leaving the city.

Great trail. Getting there at 7am during summer months was a great idea. It was super spacious, enough elevation if you’re a beginner trail walker/runner. They have tons of scenic areas and a few bridges. Signs and map were accurately stated. Due to the relaxing nature of this trail, you can lose track of time and feel like you just started when almost an hour or two had past. I recommend it. NOT stroller friendly. Good for kids if they can walk on their own pretty stable, without needed help.

Great fun trail, we saw an owl and a heron and heard much more wildlife as we were walking. Lots of smaller trails that give flexibility to length of the hike.

As all trails are in Tryon Creek, this is a well maintained, easily accessible trail.

Nice family path. No stunner viewpoints, but a nice stroll.

First time doing a hike in years after gaining about 30 pounds and this was definitely a lot more challenging then it was 2 years ago

Super fun little inner-city hike. I took the pup out with me and he loved it. Lots of traffic but that didn’t bother me.

Great city park for some 'forest bathing'. The heavily wooded forest and thick brush make these trails very peaceful to stroll through. Moderately busy with mostly masked families and their dogs. Watch out for areas in the trail where rebar sticks out!

The trailhead parking lot and the street shoulder around the corner gets full fast, but people are constantly coming and going so getting there real early isn't a must. The trails were a little muddy, moderately busy with mostly masked families with dogs, shady, and well kept. Easy nature walk right in the city!

lots of dogs

Shaded nearly the whole way through. Moderately busy, even on a weekday.

The trail was really fun! It was VERY muddy when we went and there was a couple of places that had standing water on the trail. There are a ton of steep parts so make sure you wear shoes with really good traction. NOT stroller friendly. Not even a little bit. Unless you want the workout of a lifetime do not bring a stroller!

The best place for a Father’s Day hike. Tryon Creek is my favorite location to get away from the city and its less then ten miles from my house! The diversity of flora and fauna is outstanding. Fungi.”, slugs and snails are among my favorite organisms to spot and they are in abundance here. The trails see plenty of rain fall nearly all year round so general muddy conditions are normal some trails are a bit overgrown so if you’re using a child carrying system like my Osprey Poco AG Plus be extra careful of your little one or a salmon berry bush might reach out and give your little one a touch

A large part of this hike looks perfectly arranged, as if every tree is groomed by Japanese bonsai masters. I don't remember noticing that before. Every tree is interesting. Lots to see. Tons of cool benches too. And by the way, Tryon Creek State Park is no longer closed as of a few weeks ago. The governor is opening things up in stages, and that includes quite a few state parks.

Tryon Creek State Park isn't closed due to COVID anymore. This was probably my favorite of the four hikes I did after work tonight, but I had to rush through it. I ran the last part after seeing I had less than 15 minutes before they were gonna lock the gates! Made it with about 5 minutes left, huffing and puffing. I'm too old to run like that. Super interesting trees with cool shapes. Reminds me of an arranged Japanese garden in many spots.

Tryon Creek State Park is no longer closed due to COVID. Third of four short hikes I did after work. Moral of the story: an hour or two is well enough time to go out and hike somewhere, and you don't have to drive hours out of town (well, depending on where live, I suppose).

The second part of this hike toward Boones Ferry is the more interesting, surprisingly. Slightly less people venture down the trail since it's an exit trail and not part of a loop. It has some nice scenery. A bit of elevation gain, but not too bad. Tryon Creek is no longer closed due to COVID (unless the governor changes her mind again later).
