An easy beautiful hike for dogs and small children. No trail markers, although easy to get around. Water all around, small waterfall with a foot bridge.

Great trail to bring 7-50 year old kids! If one is quiet when walking lots of woodland birds, deer, squirrels, even turkey! There are steep areas in places but with care a very enjoyable hike.

Easy. Great places to rest. Brought water shoes to cross stream for red trail. Wore bug spray. A few bug bites through my pants. Saw heron by dam crossing. Also. Oil sheen in water there.

Nice hike for hubby and I. It rained the entire day before we went so it was a little muddy in some spots but not bad. We will be sure to visit again soon with our daughter.

I'm new to hiking and was surprised by the challenges these trails presented. I'd have not rated it "easy" , but moderate. Some steep, and rooty slopes....ended up going across the kill ankle deep in water...getting to enjoy the second falls up close was a beautiful experience...was able to scale the slippery edges of the falls and actually put my hands in the flowing waters. Definitely fun and can be on the challenging side for newbies if you don't follow the trail markings turn for turn. Very lovely, woodsy setting. WEAR BUG SPRAY.

A little mud near the dam, but otherwise, a beautiful walk in the woods. Plenty of singing warblers out and about.
