Not the best trail. Especially not good for kids. High grasses. Lots of bugs. The pond was pretty much a swamp. One bright spot, there are wild blueberries on the trail. Lots of them. All at the first .2 miles, so maybe worth it to hike in and out just to see those.

The scenery was lacking. The trail itself needed some upkeep. There was a little bridge that went over a stream which was nice.

Easy trail and it's not a bad walk in the woods, but the 'overlook' and beaver 'pond' are underwhelming.

Good trail, very lightly trafficked. Nobody else on the whole trail when I was there.

Flat trail, not really for views. Across the street is Lynn's Overlook, with a spectacular view of Little River Falls. Great trail for walking dogs.

Great walking trail if you want something relatively flat. Good quick walk through the woods. The trail is clean and the bridges and benches make it nicer.

went on Saturday 11/7 . Nice easy trail. High water levels due to recent rain.

Great trail if you don't want to get too far out. It has two routes, one with a round trip of 1.5 miles and the other around .75 of a mile. It has several benches to rest, three wooden bridges and a wooden overlook near the pond. Pond was extremely low, we went in October. It's really easy, no hills. I enjoyed the area even though there's not a lot there to see, the woods were really pretty. If you drive about a mile past the trail head, if it's to your right, you will see Mushroom Rock. This is a great area located in Little River Canyon National Preserve. Lots of trails to hike at all skill levels. Make sure to check out the Little River welcome center on your right, just past the falls, if falls are to your left. It's a beautiful building and they have all kinds of maps and even a short video documentary about the falls! I will definitely hike this trail again!!
