HikingGreat!

Nice trail that goes through a variety of hard wood forests and finished over a big rock with overlook of the river.

Peaceful and quiet throughout, especially by the water. Lightly traveled, nothing super challenging elevation wise. Watch out for the walnuts and acorns, but really open valleys after a control burn at some point.

Nice hike from the campground area to the river, mainly along the Long Loop Bridle Trail. It is a wide and well maintained trail.

Good, easy trail. Left from camp C and went down to duck cove first, then back tracked to rocks trail. Nice spot to take a swim and have lunch. Saw many deer, turtles, and birds. Only saw a couple people, very awesome.

Clearly marked trail. Seems to have been a recent controlled burn. Water not accessible and climb to viewing rocks is very hazardous. Not my favorite in the park.

First to Review

Fun hike only draw back for me personally is that it is a down and back. I prefer loops or distance hikes. But in all it is a good hike. Not really any steep areas, but a few moderate hills can be expected. The option is there to take the red loop (long loop) to extend the hike. Long loop is also a horse trail so watch your step.
