Great hike through the woods that is very family friendly as well and a gorgeous lake at the "end" to enjoy as well. Can be a lil muddy when its rained or has been a wet season.

Very pretty hike. Wasn't too difficult to follow, there were plenty of trail markers. There were a couple spots where you had no choice but to go through the creek or the mud. The lake was a pretty view but was very buggy. Overall a good hike, especially for novice hikers.

Had a hard time following the trail even with the markers. Got to the top and had no idea where to go, I guess you are supposed to cross the damn but it's pretty washed out. Prepare to get wet shoes! Had to cross a steam a bunch of times. Would have been a better hike if we left the dogs out in this one

This was a fun and relatively easy walk. A little muddy in places but can always go round to avoid. The lake is pretty but more for a paddle than a swim. Same with the two waterfalls. Excellent family hike.

Great views of the waterfalls along Jockeybush outlet. Had to detour off the trail to find a log that crossed the outlet stream which proved to be a lot more difficult then I thought!

A real easy hike that passes by two or more waterfalls and concludes with stunning views of Jockeybush Lake.
