It is not every day or every weekend that Fort Mountain gets snow, but it made a nice hike into something special. Easy hike, first downhill, then uphill to finish. You will follow the path to the right away from the creek, but don't worry you are still heading toward the falls.

Quick little trail to see a pretty waterfall. Trail is pretty rocky with some incline but well marked. My pup and I enjoyed the little extra hike while in the park.

Nice Forest Hike. 1 small fallen tree. Lots of rocks and tree roots in some places. Trail is narrow in parts. Beautiful smaller cascading waterfall. Large rocky area and trail near small waterfall. Easier Hike

This should be rated easy! .5 mile with a good Vista and a very nice stream/water fall over rock. The 8 mile Gahuti trail over laps the back portion entering at a land bridge and exiting above the falls over the stream (which is the spill way for the lake). The trail is in a managed park and requires a park fee.

Beautiful waterfall! Trail seems to be uphill, both ways! Did it with my 3rd & preK girls. Great shade & well marked! Ft. Mountain has it labeled 0.75 miles and Moderately ranked.

Short trail, but a nice little challenge. In the fall and winter you have great views of the valley. Nice waterfalls.

It was a nice and short hike for me and my kids . We even found a nice spot to stop and let the boys play in the water, while the rest of us laid on e big rocks in the sun.

I started a Big Rock Nature Trail, then I turned left onto the first left to Gahuti Trail. Great hike. you have to cross a couple creeks, scramble over piles of leaves and rocks, and basically enjoy nature. I turned left onto Goldmine Creek trail which has white blazes, then I followed the red-blazed connector onto the lake trail, which has blue blazes.

Easy hike beautiful hike, especially when the waterfall is flowing. Can be a little tricky near the waterfall as the rocks are slick and covered with leaves. Nice loop trail with slight elevation change.

good quick hike! I feel more incline than 100ft though. cute waterfall. lots of leaves and a little damp out so it was a little slippery but we would do again.
