Waterfalls, wildlife, good trail for all ages This is a great little getaway for all ages. The only thing you need is a good pair of shoes and some water. The trail starts at the Carrick Creek Nature Center, there are several different things to do here. The trail splits from a few others, check the map at the trailhead. There are several stream crossings and one area where small children could get into trouble in the river. All in all it is a great little family hike.
Beautiful short loop with a pretty little water fall area only a few paces into the hike. I love this hike and it's great to do with kids!
Very nice short hike with pretty scenery and lots of places to walk or dip your feet in the water to cool off.
Beautiful well marked trails with a waterfall at the base, bathrooms, and water bottle refill station. Highly recommend for families or those who want a scenic but short hike.
One of the shorter trails in Table Rock State Park. Dog friendly, lots of groups and kids. Lots to look at. You'll be walking on regular trail as well as several areas with stepping stones and large rocks along the water. With the changing seasons, the fall colors are beautiful.
Perfect difficulty for our family with young kids. The kids loved sliding down the water over the rocks
This is one of my favorite trails for kids. It is an easy hike that runs mostly along the stream. There are lots of beautiful scenes and cool things to stop and look at, and lots of nice places to take a break and let the kids put their feet or hands in the water to cool off (just watch them VERY carefully, as the rocks can be very slick and the water moves fast in a few places). There are a few hills to make it just challenging enough that kids will feel like they've accomplished something worthwhile
Nice easy walk..great beginners trail.
Great trial. Parents - our 4 yr old and 3 yr old made it all the way. They loved it!!!
Very good sights! Tons of waterfalls all throughout the trail. About the first .8 miles has a steep incline, then it starts to slope Down. Enjoyed it!
Had a great short hike on the trail Sunday morning with my wife and two sons (13 & 8). Trail was nice and shaded all the way through and the kids had fun! Will be heading back this weekend to take our daughter as she was not able to go with us.
surprisingly strenuous the first .5 miles.
Was not ececting much from such a short hike but oh boy was I mistaken. This Hike is beautiful!! Be sure to explore the creek along the way to get the full experience!!
Beautiful scenic hike! Perfect for my family (my husband, myself, a 2yr old and 6 month old)
Great with kids. Short 1.6 mile, but still a good workout near Table Rock. Many small waterfalls along the way.
