We've been out here 3 times since thanksgiving. The lower trail around the water fall is great to go with kids, especially the limestone caves. The upper trail, behind the decrepit grain silo, is very steep, and hard for little legs. Take plenty of water.
Gene B. on Mill Knob Trail
Nice hike, somewhat steep, no view with leaves on trees, interesting falls, caves and kiln in addition to quiet forest
This was a good hike. Nice for a day out of the house. The falls are at the beginning of the hike on Bradley Trail which loops into the Chamberlain Trail. Chamberlain is mostly a walk through the woods but great for some exercise. The falls are not as beautiful as the Cascades but still nice to look at and should be appreciated for what they are. The Cascades are way too nice for comparison anyway.
This is a really nice trail but it is definitely not easy. There are 2 trails - the longer one called the Chamberlin trial is about 4 miles round trip and at points it's darn near straight up the side of the mountain. The shorter one is closer to the falls/stream and the beginning is pretty steep as well. It was a great way to spend a few hours and it's very well maintained. However, despite the notes on here that it is dog friendly, dogs are not supposed to be in the preserve/on the trail.
