Had fun on this hike. It was challenging at some points. A lot of elevation changes at the first part. Be careful of slippery rocks on decents. Very nice fews off of the bluffs overlooking the lake and surrounding mountains.

inaccurate title so giving it 3 star. Map depicts a loop combining *part* of east bluff trail and east bluff WOODS trail. check park map carefully. Be prepared, this area has paved areas and strenuous rock stair ascents.

Take it easy going up if you arent used to walking up hills. The grade is gradual. The scenery is well worth it! If you go all the way around it does get rocky and close to the edge at some areas

This is an awesome hike. Took my 3 yr. old daughter and she did pretty well on the inclines (although it was slow going). Had her in the backpack for the hike out thru the woods. Views were great. Pretty busy even during the week in the fall.

Very pretty trail. Didn't do the full course but planning on it. Went on a gorgeous day out & I loved how there was miniature waterfalls along the trails. Pure fresh cold water. Definitely going back.

Great trails with scenic views of the forest and various rock formations that dominate the area. Trail is nice because it has an intersect and plenty of maps to make navigating the landmarks easy.

Great for a trail run! Pretty quiet trail compared to the rest of the park at times.. Happy Hiking!

A beautiful hike but be prepared for navigating through some rough terrain. Lots of rocks, boulders and tree roots. All navigable and I saw plenty of young people scampering around like goats. If you start from the south you will hit a challenging climb but the rocks/boulders are nicely stacked and plenty of handholds. Beware it be slippery. Great vistas on the East branch. May take East Forest back or the RR tracks. Fun hike!

The bluff trail makes a loop with the tumble down trail. It's good for 2.4 miles. The bluff trail has decent elevation. It was a beautiful hike though.
