Awesome hike even though it rained for half is the time. lots of interesting tidbits on trees and amazing fields of Mahogany trees. The views at the Dam and the colours were well worth getting wet and muddy. All six of us (two were our grandkids 11 and 9) enjoyed the afternoon. it is everything that is advertised.

This is barely a hike and very touristy- which isn’t a bad thing- it’s more of a walk per say- it takes you along the farm lands- and is well marked. But the end is really breathtaking- the stone damn is really pretty and you can jump off into the stream from a rope swing.

Pleasant walk. Just a heads up: when there have been heavy rains likely there will be a “brown water” alert and swimming at the dam is discouraged.

This would be a good trail to do when it is overcast or rainy. There is no shade so it was hot!

This is a beautifully planned trail. A great choice for a day of rest between harder hikes. Lovely scenes, different at every turn with some fun surprises. Waterfall/dam area very cool, manicured garden, gorgeous flowers. Different than all of the other trails. Relax and enjoy. You must sign in at the mini golf. Charming guy works there, great info.

This is a long, flat well-marked hike that ends at a paradise playground. There is a swimming hole with rope swings at the end, a great way to cool down. Need good shoes as it was a little muddy in the trail. Great hike with kids (if you have time).
