The trail is in pretty good shape this year and mostly white blazed. They had a few sections where blue plastic was tied around the tree that wasn't blazed yet. It's a great up and down trail that's easy enough to follow and not get lost.

Kildoo Trail begins at the covered bridge, and the first 1/4 mile to the waterfall is easy and kid-friendly. Just beyond the footbridge over the falls the trail becomes rocky and more difficult. Crossing the Eckert Bridge, about 1 mile downstream, and joining the blue blazed NCT to return upstream to the covered bridge makes this a loop. The Slippery Rock Creek has dangerous currents and no swimming is allowed anywhere in the park. Stay on the trails for safety, and for the sake of the fragile and beautiful ferns, trees, and flowers.

Great trail for a winter afternoon hike. We stared at Alpha Falls trailhead and continued along Kildoo trail to Eckert bridge. Instead of returning on the same path, we crossed the bridge and returned on the other side of the water on the Slippery Rock Gorge Trail. This was about a 2.5 - 3 hour hike for us. We went about 4.5 miles.
