So beautiful and serene. This is the absolute best time to go as it is technically closed and you will have it all to yourself, and after the recent rains the waterfalls are gushing! Closure is only due to the road being washed out. Access via the Knibb’s Knob trailhead at the back of the park off Summit Rd. You don’t necessarily need 4WD but it is certainly helpful. Not for the novice hiker or children. 1/14/18

Croy road is closed! Drove all the way there and can't get in. Called when I got home, and found out road could be closed for a year. Ugh.

Great hike for beginners, water is now beautifully flowing throughout the park, allows dogs, picnic tables around, & bathrooms next to the parking lot. Only downside is their new policy about visiting; reservations are now required to visit the park due to high volume of visitors. You have to make reservations on their online website. They won't let you in without a reservation.

Nice and shady. Beautiful, easy hike with kids (ages 5 and 12). The signage isn't the best so take a map.

Great hike on a rainy day when you don't want to trek far but want to see something. The waterfalls and not large but are pretty. Stick to the trail near the river the road isn't all that interesting. We also went up the knobcone trail but didn't find it worth the effort. Not really any vistas up there and a very steep climb. Keep it simple and enjoy all the waterfalls.

Early September and yet the spring fed creek is enough for most of the waterfalls along this trail to be active. A shady trail, dusty yes, but the sound of running water in the creek made for a very serene hike. Not crowded, easy parking in day lot. Next time we will explore the longer trails...

Discovered Alltrails.com today! A great resource!
