On this trail you will see bluff lines and moss-covered boulders all along the trail. You will cross a stream or two, and you will also see some small cascading waterfalls. This trail is situated in a hardwood forest where you have the ability to see some wildlife such as rabbits, foxes, or deer. About 20 minutes into the hiking trail, you come to a nice area with a waterfall, which is known as Mcwater fall.

This was my second visit, and the dog's first. We picked up zero ticks here! That's astonishing, given the record numbers of them everywhere over the last couple of months, and the forested seclusion of this trail. The trail is wide and well-maintained in almost all parts, and there's plenty to see. I love any trail that goes along the top of a dam - some of the best lake views are to be had. We saw several turtles this morning, and even a bald eagle.

Great hike with lots to offer in a short distance. We loved the small streams to cross and the bridges were in good shape. My kids 5 and 8 had no problem doing this trail.

Just don't go during a down pour. There is a small wet weather creek that is difficult to cross.

So many great features to discover on this trail. An old homestead site, bluffs, a pretty lake, and a disc golf course too!!

Lovely little trail - lots of surprises! The little waterfall, old stone structures, and rustic bridges are all great. You also get some lovely views of the lake, of course, plus bluffs, boulders, pretty creeks, an amazing view from the top of the dam... I was astonished by how much this short, easy trail offered.

This trail is a nice loop if you live in the area and want to do some hiking without driving too far into the mountains. The trail runs right along the lake and is primarily used for hiking, walking, and trail running. The trail is very kid friendly.

Fun trail can be strenuous at times. Waterfall is my favorite spot to stop at. There are a couple of bridges to cross. The lower trail is a lot easier.
