This trail is well worth the trip!! It has a beautiful waterfall if you follow the red blazes it isn’t far out of the way at all. The trail was very clean and well kept. It is very wide and looks as if it would be very kid friendly. Couple steep hills to climb but nothing major. The trail was very well marked with white blazes. I started on the Caluga Creek Park side and the only negative was there wasn’t a sign in the park to point you in the right direction. So if you go all the way across the dam from the parking lot then turn left you will see the blazes. This would make a perfect short day hike. OVERALL GREAT HIKE CANT WAIT TO BRING THE WHOLE FAM!!!

Nice trail, definitely take the red trail to the waterfall . The hill after the first mile or so is a good work out and calf burner, but levels out as you go on to the watershed area. Trail was in good condition, with a few branches down. Never did see Bigfoot though.

The hike starts pretty flat along the train tracks and we were wondering how it was rated "moderate". But then you cross the creek and come to a split in the trail, red or white blazes. We continued to follow the white blazes, that takes you up a +/-20% grade hill. At the end of the trail, you reach the lake and a disc golf course. There are picnic tables and a trashcan there which made for a great lunch spot. On our way back out, sad that we hadn't found a waterfall, we decided to check out the red blaze trail. That takes you maybe another 1/4 mile maximum to the water fall. Since none of this information was in any of the reviews as of our hike, I wanted to make sure others know what to expect... Its a well (atv) traveled trail so you shouldn't get lost. It has long stretches of steep hills but is relatively flat the rest of the time. Definitely take the red blaze trail to the waterfall. That was what pushed it to 4 stars for me.

Really nice hike, quiet and wide trail. Although it has been raining, Trail was still quite firm.
