The beauty of this trail is unsurpassed. You hike through a forest with the river by your side. There are 3 river crossings. The third one was high (due to recent rains) so we removed our boots. The waterfall at the end of this hike was spectacular.

One of our favorites! A lot to see along the way; rivers, swimming holes, old dwellings. Very dog and kid friendly. Easy to spend a half day exploring.

Went with our teenage boys and two friends July 1, 2017It was a nice hike. Lots of little spots to get in the river. The water over the falls was low(which is normal in July). The pool below was about 3ft in the middle. We had a water moccasin laying on a log. And 2 babies swimming in the water. We kept our distance and Neither bothered with us.

We accidentally started hiking at the bottom of the parking lot on a trail that joined up with the AT. The hike was beautiful with lots of running water and several water crossings where your feet will get wet. It was a great hike for my dogs, including my older dog. We will definitely be back to check out the trail we intended to hike and see the waterfall.

Very fun trail that runs along a picturesque creek and has a waterfall at the end. Some slight hills. Took us about 2 hours.

Lovely easy hike. There were no directional signs or trail markers from the parking lot, but the trail is accessed by going through the gate at the top of the parking lot. You'll walk that road a little uphill and find the trail where the road ends. The parking lot was full, but the trail wasn't crowded at all. No leaves on the trees yet, so we could see the river easily, but I suspect once the trees are full, you won't see it easily. There are a couple of river crossings, (rocks slippery when wet!!) so be sure to bring shoes that can handle an accidental dip!

A great trail for an easy hike. Didn't know there was also a longer 10 mile hike off this trial, but we'll come back and give that a go another time.
