Not happy about the amount of trash that is left there. Lots of trash around water..and all over the trails, some of the trail markers were also pulled out of the ground

We checked the park out yesterday. It's a pretty place, and I love the falls, but we should have waited longer after the rain. It was quite muddy and we ended up with soaked boots. It was unfortunate to see how much trash people leave or dump there, and we didn't find the trails to be super well marked. There are red and blue (and maybe green?) posts to mark certain sections, but there were several smaller trails leading other places that weren't marked at all. All in all it was very pretty but we'd wait till it dries up before going back.

it is open, apparently it was closed for 3-4 months for repairs, wish they had put up a sign to let people know.
There are 2 marked trails, the red is better than the blue and you can do both same day. The red hugs the river. There is a suspension bridge, which is fun. very popular, parking lot was full by 10 am, but easy to park off road. Only disappointment was many discarded plastic water bottles . I am bringing a garbage bag next time I go

I just stopped at the Stillhouse office on 1670, the counter person informed me that Chalk Ridge is open as of 3/1 (yesterday) .... just an FYI

Not a bad run, the trail gets really tight after about .75 mile close to the river. Thorn bushes are pretty bad, a few downed trees that can be hopped over while running. There are sections with washed out stairs, the suspension bridge is a little odd to jog over. Overall not terrible but Dana Peak is much nicer with more area to run.

Trail is relaxing and (mostly) well maintained. Markers kind of 'disappear' towards the end. A good beginner/light trail with some 'side quests' for those that want to explore. Well worth a visit for anyone that wants to do an afternoon stroll and relax. Even if the parking lot is full....you will find some quiet time on the trails.
