This is a complex series of trails, with access from several parking lots, and from turn-outs along two roads. These trails are used by hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders alike. None are overused. The main parking lot has restroom facilities and water. The trails can be used in a number of different combinations resulting in hikes that can vary from a few miles to over 16. Little Clifty Creek is the central feature of the trail system, with foot bridges over to both the north and the south. The War Eagle loop, approximately six miles, has great views of War Eagle Creek, with several benches for sitting on a nice day. There is even a side trail that takes you to the Hobbs Visitor Center. The trails are very well maintained, with significant elevation changes from the parking lot to Clifty Creek. There are sign-in's at the trailheads, and maps available at the sign-in stations. The parking lots are gated, and closed during night hours. There is also a parking lot for parking horse trailers.
