Part of the trail was closed for maintenance. And some parts of the trail are poorly marked. Otherwise a lovely trail. Will definitely come again

Beautiful water features. The trail was kind of messy but good inclines.

Best views between 2nd bridge and start of the loop. Especially nice in winter when there are not so many swimmers.

Shaded. Quiet. Hilly. Scenic. Peaceful. Great for a workout or meditative stroll.

Fun trail. Small climbs, nothing too strenuous. Nice creeks to relax at. Came across 2 deer, one of them got very startled when he saw us, screamed and ran away - sorry little guy. Beginning of the trail had moderate traffic. We just wore our masks in these more trafficked, tighter areas.

Excellent short trial with a lot of options to splash in one of the pools or slide into one. Perfect location in the begging/ end of the trial with pool, waterfall and a lot of space for sitting and eating after the trial

We did this trail and the orange loops which I’d highly suggest if you want a longer trail and want to see lots of good views. I will say to be aware that the parking lot doesn’t fit many people. We arrived pretty early and barely got a spot last weekend. So glad we got a spot and was able to see the nice waterfalls. Also, be cautious about snakes. These trails are surrounded by lush forest and water access so wonderful habit for many animals including snakes.

I combined what the park calls the Orange and Green trails. Lovely flowing stream, waterfalls, woods. A lot of incline and sometimes steep descent. Many places you are traversing large rocks and even having to cross boulders to stay on the trail. I do not recommend for children or anyone with weak knees or ankles.

These trails are for mountain bikers and hikers. I enjoyed wandering and doing several trails. Without using All Trails or some kind of gps trail mapping system it would be easy to get lost as some of the areas don’t have the clearest marking. Pretty hike with lots of shade which was nice. The creeks and small waterfalls were pretty.
