Trail running here again. If I lived closer to Georgetown, I'd probably run here often.

Trail runners like ups and downs, hills, creek crossings, and other obstacles. This trail has no creek crossings, no big hills and not many ups and downs. But it does have a variety of terrain and terrain obstacles- dirt, leaves, and roots; loose, solid, and sharp rock; foliage creeping in on certain parts of the trail, etc. This place is mostly a good workout for your feet. The bottoms of your feet will be pretty sore after running this if you're not prepared.

One thing that would make the trail better would be a restroom along the way somewhere. There are a few benches, but no doggie bag stations (I've seen a few dogs) and no restrooms. Also the signage is good but a bit old. Still all in all, this trail is good.

As a trail runner, I still really get into the hiking aspect. I like stopping and taking in the views. This place has marvelous views. I like lakes and wide open spaces, so running here and seeing across the lake to the parks and fields on the other side is pretty cool.

great trail for trail running. lots of Sharp rocks so forced you to be on ur tires. good spots to jump in the water too cool off.

there was no waterfall and the lake level was also kinda low so the croquet falls were disappointing

Awesome hike. I have heard there's a shorter hike for people that don't want to hike the 5.8miles.Its from the backside of the falls. I've hiked up behind the falls and there is a trail but I'm not sure where it goes. The normal 5.8 isn't bad. However once you get close to the falls you have to go through some pretty high grass wich we kind of ran through hoping there wasn't any snakes haha. I think instead of going through the grass you can probably stay along the fence on the falls side and go down the falls.

Nice views of the lake with hardly any challenging ups or downs. VERY rocky terrain so wear good durable shoes and watch your step. Probably not a great trail for small kids. The overlooks are beautiful but aren't fenced at all. Considerable boat noise. Moderately trafficked. We almost got to the falls today, but the last part of the trail was almost completely overgrown with really tall grass that we didn't feel comfortable wading through. Kind of unfortunate as we were really looking forward to it. Dog friendly for the most part, but no poop receptacles. The small stream was no obstacle at this time of year and was barely running. Overall, we'd probably do this trail again. It's free to hike and the people at the gate are very friendly. A map at the trail head would be helpful, as would trail markers.

A great trail for a quick hike. The diversity in terrain throughout the trail provokes caution as you tread over jagged and slick rock. Quaint streams become surprising rapids after most rains, be ready to get a little wet.
