Nice easy hike for families. Good shade cover and near streams. 50 or so stairs in the 1st quarter of the hike

Great trail, easy to navigate. There is one area with about 50 stairs, but it was easy enough. I walked my two dogs, didn’t see anyone else and didn’t have any issues. Of course it was the middle of the day on a Thursday! I would recommend this to anyone, it was quick and pretty easy. There are a couple of places you have to look for the trail markings to be sure you’re on the right trail, but easy to find if you’re paying attention. My dogs enjoyed it, too!

Been going to Frankfort Mineral Springs since I was a kid. My Mom and Dad got married on the original bridge in front of the waterfall in 1990. I was sad to see that they are building a new bridge there now.

Easy hike leading to a secluded natural spring. The park is a nice day trip about 40 min outside of the city

Good, easy trail with a nice waterfall at the end. Gets a little muddy, but would be great if you have small kids or a very very old dog. Not the hike for you if you want a challenge, but a relaxing little walk n falls.

A great hike. Very muddy today with all the rain, be sure to wear waterproof boots with your hike. Scenic hike along a stream! Very relaxing and easy loop!

Great trail and history. Old site of a mineral spring resort from late 1800s and early 1900s. Ppl believed the water had healing powers and came from all over to drink and bath in them.

Short but interesting hike to the mineral springs. Varied terrain, creek crossing, some elevation gain, lots to look at.

Great trail with some scenic spots. Easy hike with only 1 or 2 hills worth noting. I'd definitely recommend it!

Great, short trail. Took the dogs today. It was neat and the springs and falls are cool.

Some nettles along the trail so watch for those.

This is a great little loop trail in Raccoon State Park that leads to waterfall and a mineral spring. As of June 2017 the trail was still a little muddy in spots, had a blown down tree the park routed around, and had a few sections of overgrowth but nothing that wasn't manageable. Good hike for most people of all skill levels and younger kids alike.
