This trail is also known as Buttermilk Falls. A mostly flat trail, the majority made of small gravel. A very pleasant walk along the creek with many small trails branching down to the water with a few swimming holes and a rope swing. There is a nice big parking lot, multiple benches, and some bags/cans for garbage at various points.

A truly nice, easy trail following a very pretty creek. It looks like it would be a good spot to take a dip in the hot months. You could probably get a stroller along most of it. It wasn't too bad litter wise, but my friends and I went there to do a trash pick-up so it's even cleaner now!!! Definitely a great local spot, I'll be back.
