Short trail but incredibly beautiful at a convergence of two waterfalls. Don’t skip it.

Short trail. Very easy , couple water crossing ( small creeks puddles ) . A great extra trail to hit once you have completed a longer trail and still want to go a bit.

Short, easy and interesting. Follows bluffs and "caves". Some of the many interesting rock formations of Shawnee National Forrest. Put it together with Hawk's Cave and Big Rocky Hollow then have a picnic at one of the many picnic sites in the park. That will be nice day.

Easy trail. Waterfall at the end, allows for climbing and rappelling on trail. Overall, not overly exciting.

This short trail loops through a small stream’s surprisingly deep canyon, with lots of sheer cliffs and massive boulders along the way. A great short, easy hike with big payoff.

Nice easy hike along bluffs. The trail is mostly flat. Two small waterfalls and a shallow stream when we were there. Will be back in June with our grandson.

A very short, easy trail to a small canyon. It looks like there might be a small intermittent waterfall at the end when it isn't so dry. The stream and falls were dry when I visited. I noticed a sign indicating a rock climbing and repelling area near the trailhead if that's what you are into.
