Fun place to hike with awesome rock formations! Big dog and little dog love the streams and rocks to climb on. Always pretty crowded so not as enjoyable as it could be.

The trails extend much further than what the recent posts will lead you to believe. In the far northeast section by where the highway is, there are some beautiful waterfalls. The trails have been very well taken care of by a local Boy Scout troop. The trails were easy to hike and there were plenty of huge rocks along the way to climb on if you like a challenge. I would recommend this place for hikers of all experience levels.

I love this trail system. Parts are really difficult, and parts are easy. If you loop the entire preserve, it's 5 miles. Unfortunately, the great bridge that crossed the creek near the Simmons Middle School trailhead has been washed away. But as dry as it has been lately, taking the Orange Trail is no problem and there are several places to cross over to the Blue Trail or other trails without getting wet. I've placed pictures of the waterfall which right now is not much more than your kitchen sink! It's still a beautiful area.

Love this place, but there has been more and more trash being left behind. I was take a trash bag and gather up trash from the trail. They have trash cans at the entrance and down by the creek.

Great! But as another guy below my review says, you WILL get lost easily here. Their trail color system is not clearly marked nor used frequently enough along the trail. My 3.2 jaunt turned into a 6.2 slog through the Alabama 'Outback'.
The first half I loved Got to see a very cool double waterfall and several deer along trail.
Would do again.
