Nature tripsOff trail

So the trail is not bad and pretty flat...but when I searched it out...I was looking for MTB trails...and apparently bikes are not allowed on this trail...which I didn’t know about until I arrived...but it does have a pretty waterfall at the end.

Hiking

It's a nice, easy hike for families or people who want a nice walk without a ton of effort. The only difficulty was hiking down to the water (totally optional!) but even that had a rope tied to a few trees to make it easier to climb. As others have said, you can enter the trails from the Silver Comet Trail, or from the trialhead at Heritage Park off of Fontaine Rd. The mill ruins are pretty cool, and I had no idea they were so close to the Silver Comet! I would recommend taking the trail to its end, all the way to the covered bridge. It's a local landmark and quite pretty! There's also a historical marker for the Battle of Ruff's Mill, to give information about the area during the Civil War.

One of my favorite regular walks especially because it’s not usually too crowded.

Trail is solid. Follows a river and has a couple mills and a waterfall towards the end by the covered bridge.

Easy out and back trail. Great shallow creek for wading in warm temperatures.

Nice little trail. Absolutely not Moderate, so easy! Good for all ages and skill level. Ruins of the old mill are super cool and the creek was nice to walk next to.

More easy than moderate. Great for families with children of all ages. Good for dogs but seems to be super strict on the leash rule. Mostly wooded with plenty of shade. The end of this trail (if you’re following the AllTrails app) connects you to the Silver Comet Trail, which seems to be more of a biking trail. If you’re not interested in continuing on to this trail, I would stop at the structure. There seems to be another path you can take at the structure - no idea where that leads. There’s also a picnic area here. Overall, would do it again for an easy hike (not moderate).

I’d say it’s more of an easy trail but there are lots of roots and rocks that you might trip over if you aren’t paying attention. Over all it’s a nice trail for a stroll and visit with nature.

Nice little trail close to the city. Runs along the river and ends near some ruins and an old farmhouse.

Great simple hike. Well covered and goes along a creek with access to the water at several spots. Lots of parking.

Nice trail. Very flat. Ends at an old collapsed mill and you can continue up to a covered bridge up a small trail.

Great trail for a mid-week reset from the hustle and bustle or change of scenery from walking the dog around the block.

Awesome trail, the link to the silver comet is great, it makes it extendable to your liking. I really enjoyed this hike. Sights are limited to a creek/river and two old ruins/houses.

I liked this trail a lot. It’s scenic and really easy to walk. I’d suggest it for a family outing or if you want an easy, but longer walk by yourself or with a dog.
