I’m all the way from Texas and this trail was beautiful!! Such an amazing trail, beautiful scenery, dog friendly, etc. I will definitely be doing more hikes while I’m in beaver county! There was a strange car just parked throughout my trail so I do recommend younger ladies like myself, take a taser ! Other than that BEAUTIFUL

Went during a down poor which was perfect for this hike. The forest is majestic and the trail fairly simple. The waterfall and mineral springs combined with the fog rising after the rain ended made this place truly magical. Highly recommend getting the springs to yourself for sometime, it makes a big difference.

I rated this trail 4 stars. I believe this took about 2 hours to complete and it was fairly easy difficulty. Beautiful green trail, but very muddy due to recent rains and pretty over grown in parts. I used the alltrails app to navigate some of the turns.

This was a fairly easy trail and also fairly short. it provides a couple different side paths and a little room to go off the path at points. The mineral springs and waterfall are pretty neat as well. This isn't the greatest trail ever but it's pretty nice.

We've done this trail twice. it's great for kids and dogs. It was quite muddy today, but still fun! Just bring some back up clothes and shoes for when you're done hiking.

Great with kids! It was very muddy, we almost fell a few times. But lots of water spot to rinse your feet!

A nice walk, with just a few moderate climbs. I don't know if the recent rain is the cause, but there were a few pretty muddy spots. I was happy I was wearing ankle-high shoes. Poles could also help keep your balance, especially when going downhill on a muddy section. One of the bridges over a creek is washed out but there's a fallen tree across the water which made a great handrail. Someone else suggested walking clockwise and that advice worked out well. Got the biggest climb out of the way early, and the last part of the hike was on level ground, including a stretch along the lake. Parking by the bridge where the loop starts was full, but there was plenty of parking by the park office just across rt. 18

The trail itself starts off nice and wide and well maintained. The further you go the more muddy it gets ,Wich normally I don't mind, but at times it was whole impassable sections . The loop also got more and more narrow with the exception of the very beginning and end of the loop . The loop is dog friendly but may other hikers didn't have thier dog leashed like we did . the one bridge is also washed out but the creek is easy to walk across.

Great trail for young kids. Hiked with my two girls (ages 3.5 and 5) and they did the entire trail on their own with minimal breaks. They loved the falls, the creek, and all the sights and sounds of the surrounding woods. We went to the falls first and then up to the old spa area and then looped back to the car. Some areas were muddy but we've had so much rain recently its to be expected. One tree was down across the trail and we had to climb through but the kids enjoyed the obstacle.
