Very beautiful and full of surprises. Be very careful on the ladders if wet. Quite slippery. Good hiking shoes will help on the ladders. Loved this hike.

This trail was very surprising. To be right off of the campground it was probably one of the prettiest trails in the park. The two ladders at the water crossings were very unexpected and a lot of fun.

Says it’s a loop but at the end you’re next to the road and have to turn around. Loved this trail though. Super easy and the ladders was huge so my toddler loved it!

one of my favorite short hikes with fun obstacles, beautiful rock formations and endangered plant life. Cumberland sandwort I think it is.

Beautiful short hike. The creek mysteriously disappears into the sandstone canyon covered in groves of rhododendrons and towering White Pines and Hemlock. It's one of our favorite late day hikes just before sunset.
