Very nice. A little challenge to it but not too much. It was very slick though from all the rain. I believe the river had been high and left slick mud. I didn’t get to finish the trail bc I slipped in the mud but me and my dogs enjoyed it! Would have been nice to be able to get to the water easier though without the slippery mud! Lol overall a very nice trail

This was a good hike. I added the Dam Site Trail via the middle of the Discovery Trail to lengthen the hike. Be aware, it's doubtful you'll have cell coverage so plan accordingly.

good 3 mile walk, discovery and stream are easy. add in the damsite loop to make it more moderate. very quiet only saw 1 other person on the trail late on a saturday. will have to try the summit loop next time. very nice area.

Pretty nice hike for the area, Medoc mountain has some nice features including the bridge over Little Fishing Creek and the Old Dam Site. Interesting to see rhododendron and mountain laurel along the creek. Also the interpretive signs about the local wildlife were nice along the Discovery Trail. We combined Stream Loop, Summit Loop, Old Dam Site Loop and Discovery Loop which makes a nice day hike if you like walks in the woods.

Great place to stop and walk. I have spent a weekend camping and hiking and other times I will stop on my way home from Raleigh, just to stretch my legs and enjoy the out of doors before finishing my drive home.

I have hiked this trail probably 30-40 times. It's a great length for a short, day-hike and also is a good hike for getting your legs conditioned for a long hike with a pack --if you live nearby and can go out frequently. The hills are not a factor as you may think the name implies. This is not a mountain. It's usually a quite hike with few, if any, others on the trail.

Nice quiet hike. Went out on a Friday morning and enjoyed a peaceful morning hike. Will go back soon.

Rode over to this little known state park back in February of 2013 to meet up with a facebook pal from Indiana who was down here on business. We had a great hike. Trails are easy and follows several streams that would be great for kayaks or canoes. Would like to go back! See photo above.

Fun place to go for a nice relaxing weekend. Not many people out and about. Clean. Helpful staff. Will go back for sure.
