Went with my five year old and it was good for an interesting hike in the woods. Lots of plant life to spot, overlooks, a cave made it fun for him. Ended up meeting a lot more people on the trail than I would've expected. We got a little confused on the end of the loop by the edge, could've used an extra trail marker there, but otherwise very well marked.

We did not finish this trail since it was not baby stroller friendly. Baby stroller on this trail was a BIG MISTAKE. It was hilly, bumpy, with big rocks to walk over... We ran into another couple with a baby stroller who were struggling as well. It was a pretty trail, though. We might go back when our child is older and can walk it himself.

Overall very good trail and relatively well marked. Definitely rocky..so bring your walking stick, esp if it's rained recently as it isn't super steep but it is very slippery in spots. Also..agree with reviews on the caves...never saw any! Wish they were marked.

A wonderful family trail for a couple of hours. But I have a request and I'm sure I speak for many other hikers:
Please, Dog Owners, PLEASE leash your dogs...per the rules and just to be respectful and considerate of others. This isn't your own personal property. I understand your dog may be "sweet, won't bite, love children"...etc...but it's NOT fun to have to pick up my own leashed dog or my children because your oh-so-friendly dog is chasing my kids, snipping at my dog or otherwise a trip hazard because it's running around unleashed.

It's a nice walk. Not hard at all. A good little escape into the woods if your close!

Would have better views from the bluff early spring, late fall/winter.

Great caves! There are 4 different caves and you'll need a rope to fully explore them but they are loads of fun!

Loved the cave. Only issue was we would have walked past the cave if not for another family ahead of us. Need to clearly mark where the cave is.

very enjoyable trail! The trail is wet from groundwater in places. The creeks are beautiful. We took the first path down below the bluff and were able to find the caves (another family we passed said they couldn't find them). The final cave has an entry on the river side and an exit (if you stay to the left) onto the bluff that allows you to get back on the main trail.

Took my 3 year old Grandson on this hike and it was a great location for him to start his hiking experience.
We did not make it all the way around the loop, so we missed the caves but we did get to see the Duck
River. This is a wonderful hike and we will be back to do the complete loop.

This is one of local favorites. What I call a good leg workout with a cave or two! Beautiful views, and plenty of serene places to meditate.
