I would say this is more of an easy trail than moderate. One of our favorites because it’s beautiful and close to home. I recommend this trail for people of all ages.

Chalk Ridge is scenic but this is an easy hike, not moderate. The first mile or so is pretty. The falls were very underwhelming. After that its a basic forest and riverwalk. We saw no animals other than snails. It's a good kids outing but I think we will keep looking for something better.

Love this trail. Feels like you're completely taken away from the area and enter a whole new environment!

The best hiking trail in the area. Currently, the main trail is flooded near the trailhead and is inaccessible. There are some other, shorter trails that are still open and were fun enough for our family this morning.

We had a great hike. Easy. Lots of outlet trails that you can get lost on but still, good adventure.

My family and I went today. We have lived in the area for about 2 years and have never been. It’s was absolutely beautiful and for those who love the outdoors and exploring it’s a great place to start. We were able to navigate easily and enjoyed getting in the water. I do wish people who visited the area took better care to clean up after themselves.

I love this place, lots of hidden treasures if you know where to look. Follow the creek up stream at the wood bridge and continue up to the springs. You won't be disappointed. You can also travel the main trail, that passes by the main water fall, across the swinging bridge and continue down until you think the trail ends. It doesn't, though it's nearly impossible to see, just keep going. There are cascading water falls, the ruins of the first water mill in Bell county, and remains of the Chisholm trail were thousands of wagons left there wheel tracks in limestone. People are trashy here though. I've picked up over 15 grocery bags worth of trash. I once carried out 6 at a time. It is a gem regardless.

trails arnt very well marked and some can get rather steep. if you veer off from the main paths it's easy to get lost. however, the scenery along the stream is beautiful. wish there was less trash everywhere though.

Great trail loved walking in the water. Wish it went a bit farther but it’s great for kids!

I really liked this place. Kind of hard to know where the trail actually is and it’s easy to get lost in here if you veer from the main path onto one of the many more scenic trails. But me and my family had a blast none the less

There are other trails on the other side of the river! If you stop by the Stillhouse Hollow Lake office before you cross the dam you can pick up a map. Plenty of wild turkey, turtles, and birds to see.

Once you get yourself on the right trail it’s a great experience. Wasn’t able to finish the entire trail cause my phone died but was able to hit the key points, falls and bridges. Definitely will be going back in the future very well kept too esp for an unpaid park

Easy trail. Going off the wooden path leads you to some pretty sights if you follow the river.

Ok trail. If you want to go off trail name sure to wear pants. It can get a bit thorny.

Nice trail....gone really bad. Take your trash with you! There is a dumpster at the parking lot. If you can carry it in....you can carry it out. And...it will be much lighter and more compact.
