The Alley Spring Overlook Trail begins at the NW corner of the mill and takes you up a steep climb through heavy timber to an overlook of the mill and valley below, from there it follows the ridge line and back to the valley floor where it follows the river back to the mill.

Didn’t do the overlook trail yet but there’s a smaller trail you can take just around the spring. Going back!! Stunningly beautiful place. Very well maintained and preserved.

Beautiful blue water natural running spring around 81,000,000 gallons per day flows out of that spring. There's an old red Mill which was built in 1893

We really enjoyed our trip. Fairly easy hike. It had some switchbacks at the beginning that were a little tough being out of shape. There are copperheads so be careful and stay on the trail. I would hike there again.

Easy short hike near floating, camping and other outdoor activities. Great way to spend a couple of hours.

Very easy trail, Awesome overlook. 0.3 miles of this trail is right next to the river, very pretty.

Just did a return trip. Still just as great as the first time. The mill is extremely scenic. Great views from the overlook trail. The whole surrounding area is full of recreational opportunities, canoeing, hiking galore.
