This is a beautiful trail that begins with Horseshoe Falls. The trail continues to Musgrove Mill historic battlefield. Easy, very well maintained, and well marked. Trail has quite a few historical markers with information and facts about the site. Trail if fairly flat with a few small bridges and steps. The first 100 yards of the trail is paved with ADA access and a nice overlook of the falls.

My family and I, wife and two kids ages 6 and 3 took a couple of hours to spend here hiking and enjoying the scenery. We saw a brown water snake a little off the beaten path sitting in a bed (swam off faster than I could take a pic!) and an awesome toad. Additionally, some great nature and history lessons along the way. A good wine to do if you want to get a quick one in if you only have the morning to spare.

Super easy little hike! The signs along the trail are very informative, and we learned a lot of history while doing the loop around! The waterfall was a ton of fun; definitely a great family and kid friendly hike!

Nice easy trail. No one else on trail but a few people hanging out in the water near the waterfall which really isn't much of a waterfall

Took my wife and two young daughters on this trail a few weeks ago. We enjoyed the messages/history lesson that were posted along the trail. Definitely need more trails like this one. We only ran into one person on the trail. The little waterfall/swimming hole near the parking lot, on the other hand, was quite busy. Overall a nice hike and educational.

We stopped here in the middle of a long drive. The kids (10 and 4) had a blast. Very easy trail but the best part by far was the little waterfall and the river. Not too crowded. Beautiful scenery.

This trail winds through forest, hills and swampland. It reaches an historic battlefield of the American Revolution which is well interpreted. It is a very cool, pleasant walk. The directional signs at the loop intersection could be improved since you might find that you are going in circles before you find the way back.

Good trail. But it is 1.9 miles if you walk the loop. The elevation is not too bad. It is mostly shaded. Waterfall is beautiful and is a good place to play in the water

Easy for all, history, swimming hole and small falls. Don't forget the trail on the other side of the river where the State Park headquarters is located.

Very simple hike with historical markers along the way, explaining the battle that took place here. Horseshoe Falls is small, but scenic.
