Beautiful well maintained trail - great workout. Downside is lots of hikers w untrained dogs let them go off leash. We were charged by dogs twice.

Probably one of my favorite trails so far... so much change in scenery. I went right after it had rained, there was no one else out there, the the creek beside me was full. The incline changes frequently so you end up getting a pretty good workout, and there is a beautiful river at the bottom.

completed in about two and a half hours. A great trail close to home, yet apparently a well kept secret! Much snow was still on the river side, making the trail very slippery. It was the first time I'd ever hiked with my shirt off while stepping on snow! you have to love southern weather! I'll be back! By the way, if you recently lost a pair of gray eyeglasses, I hung them on the bulletin board at the main entrance.

Decent hike. Wasn’t too hard. Theres a river at the end of it where you can relax a bit before heading back.

Last minute trail run with my neighbor. Not bad at all. First run in a long time so I’m looking forward to running this entire trail.

I first tried the trail for a fishing trip which turned out not as well as I wanted due to unleashed dogs jumping into the river. So I began running it and to my surprise it still continues to have unleashed dogs. I think it’s because of how remote the area is, people feel no one else will be on the trail. This is my only complaint. While running a trail it surely doesn’t sit well with some dogs...

Always a quiet trek.

Great easy hike and beautiful big wide river at the end. Perfect for a summer hike and river dip at the end! Wide flat trail. About 2 hours out and back.

Beautiful trail parts were fairly strenuous but overall I had a peaceful exhilarating hike. The woods were lush and the rick formations and river were beautiful.

Fallen tree! Happened this morning just before reaching the creek. The tree contain a huge yellow jacket nest, and they were not happy campers about their home being upset.

Not sure who to contact about the trail maintenance. The tree will need to be cut. It was a really big tree and no way around it. Had to turn back. It's about .25 miles from the creek. Beware of the bees!
