Went on our annual Thanksgiving Day Hike with the kids. They enjoyed it. Nice scenery, old hunting blinds. They climbed up one of the trees. Well marked. I would say on the tougher end of a moderate hike.

Great natural features and a steady uphill climb! A great hidden gem in Jefferson County.

A great little trail that shows off a bit of everything the LaBarque Creek Watershed has to offer. The northern half of the loop starts by showing off the creek's many beautiful structures, including a very old man-made dam before heading up the ridge towards various sandstone bluffs and pine hollows. The southern half lazily moves through dolomite creek flats and several clearings before gradually making it's way up the ridge.

It's a little easier on the ankles to take the southern half first, but make sure you are paying attention to the blue trail blazes when you approach the northern most sharp turn. The spur to the north leads to an overlook that shows off the area beautifully.

Great trail but not real long - where the trail forks go to the right, you will encounter less hills
