This was a beautiful shaded trail for a Sunday afternoon summer hike. When we used the link for directions on the app it took us to the Boy Scout camp on Swimming Pool Road and there was no trail. We went back and followed the signs to the state park and went past the mountain bike trail to the next parking lot and stumbled upon the trail. Of the hikes we have done in this area, this has been our favorite. There were some hikers, but not as many as other spots in the area. We will definitely be back.

NO PETS!!!!! The trail description says dogs on leash allowed but at the head of the entrance there are signs posted everywhere saying “no pets” on this trail. I’m sure it was nice but as we hike with our hounds we didn’t get to see it. Was a little frustrated because this was one of the larger trails in the park that we wanted to see

Very beautiful hike but does get boring if you've been through it several times. Restrictive in that there are not too many options for variation in the hike. Definitely worth your time if you've never been!

This is one of my favorite places for a day hike. Be sure to stop at all the overlooks and read the information posted. They give you the history of this beautiful place.
The top of the trail is improved for those who have difficulty getting around. But once you go down the stairs to the bottom it can get pretty rough.
Bring water and bug repellent. Lol.
