Sulphur Springs Trail located in Paris Mountain State Park is a well worn trail that will raise your pulse rate on the uphill climb, but has many switch backs to not tire you out completely. The only negatives that I have about this trail were the $6 entry fee into the park and the bridge being out at the beginning or end (depending on the direction you hike the loop) due to flooding from excessive rainfall lately. There were also a few roots and rocks that you need to navigate but easy to get around.

Fantastic trail. I recommend (from the parking lot below), taking the trailhead to the left, this provides you with a gorgeous, lush and wooded hike along the waterfall for two miles. I hike w/ my kids regularly, and would not take kids on this one. It’s steep, rocky and challenging at points but it is a blast. Super secluded and beautiful.

Well maintained state park with $6 pp entry fee for day use. Park in shelter 5,6 lot to access trail head. If you are a bit older (like me) and have some knee issues, it is best to take the trail counter-clockwise. The is a steep root laden and rocky start with a nice smooth trail back down.

Pretty on one side, with rhododendrons and a nice stream, then you have to watch out for the bikes coming back down.

Great trail- it was so beautiful and the scenery was changing all the time. I definitely recommend parking at the very start of the trail near the large picnic areas. We started by crossing the street and it ended so beautifully! It was awesome how it seemed to save the best for last... we will definitely be back!

Pretty nice trail - there’s a really cool dam and some of the climbing can get difficult for some

Really liked this trail, several waterfalls that were running pretty good. Lots of roots and it can get a little slick in spots. Overall worth the effort and we will be doing this again.

Beautiful morning for a hike. I added the firetower spur to this hike for a little extra distance and nugget of history.

An absolutely beautiful hike! It could use a few more markings, but I will definitely do this hike again.

Nice winter views and good hills. Waterfalls were high volume with recent rain.

A very nice mix of descending, ascending, and level trail. Some nice views from elevation. We did it with an 11 and 13 y/o and three mid-sized dogs and it was a good bit of exercise without being totally exhausting.

This was a good hike. The trailhead parking was full so I parked at one .25 miles before it adding .5 miles to my round trip. I went clockwise putting the more strenuous part first. Decent amount of mountain bikers on the 2nd half but you can avoid them by doing an out and back on the hiker only section or going on Saturdays when bikers aren't allowed.
