Well-maintained wheelchair-friendly trail through the forest which is paved with gravel, and ends with an overlook of the Cahaba River. The trail passes some interesting ravines and cliffs. If you continue onward after the first overlook, you will reach a second overlook, which is slightly more difficult to reach, due to elevation changes. If you visit in the Spring, when there is an abundance of water, you may be able to find a small 'waterfall' past the first overlook, and just across the bridge, off the trail on a side path to the East (right) about 20 meters. There is also another trail available across the river, and a scenic drive which follows the river itself.
