The trail passes through the pine/hardwood forest of the park to the top of Dam Mountain. Spring and fall offer a variety of wildflowers, plants, and animal life. Streams and cascades are great for providing solitude and attracting the keen eye of the photographer.

Loved this trail!!!! It was a good trail with 0 people around when I went on a Saturday! The views were awesome, but there were bugs galore! Definitely take bug spray and a walking stick.

Great trail with great vantage points. Overgrowth was a bit worse than expected, but well worth the view!

The wife and I had a great hike. There are 3 trails to chose from and we took the one leading to the falls. The trail head map indicated it was a 2 mile trek that takes about 1 1/2 hrs. We completed it in 45 minutes starting around noon on a Saturday. It was hot, but there is a stream that you can find some relief from along the path. The falls were just a trickle... could have been the time of year and the heat wave we are in the middle of. We will be back. The other 2 trails are said to be more difficult and steeper. Wear good shoes.

Was a great hike! Definitely one I'll do again. The trail makes a loop... Follow the signs and take path to the right for little easier hike.

This is a pretty nice trail and not too hard except for a pretty steep uphill on the backside. Combine this one with the other trails at Lake Catherine.

It is really 4 1/2 miles from start to where 3 trails break at waterfalls. This was not easy but moderate to difficult because of strep areas and climbing across rock at end. Some wet crossings. Beautiful waterfall.

Awesome trail. Marked well, easily to traverse and beautiful. There's a couple of steep sections but for the most part, it's pretty easy.
