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.

May 2017 - grasses along the trail were taking it over (I will come back to this in fall/winter and be wearing pants instead of shorts). Plus suspect that views would be great when the leaves are off

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.
