We started at the bottom by the boat ramp. We walked a little on the road to the maple leaf sign. It starts out as one trail and you quickly meet a fork in the trail, we went to the left as it’s a more gradual ascent than starting to the right. The waterfall area is very fun to climb around!

Beautiful trail. My husband and I took our two year old daughter and 6-week old son. Our daughter hiked up most of the way until the waterfall. It is uphill with a narrow steep trail until the fall but definitely doable. Even her little legs made the trek. The falls were a perfect stop to cool off and play.

Great trail, roughly an hour average. The cluster in my recording is where the waterfall is.

Lots of fun. Downhill at the start and uphill the rest of the way. Stop and cool off at the waterfalls. Highly recommend

Steep climb. Waterfall is pretty but shortens the trail (at least the way we went). Shaded. Wear bug spray. Worth the hike.

Beautiful trail. The waterfall is super cool, don’t miss it! Be sure to look at the map of the park, as this trail is a loop.

A great trail for kids. The cave and waterfall are a perfect half way point.

Hard uphill start but the rest is sloped down. Lovely loop through hilly woods with a nice trickling waterfall and shallow sandstone cave. Very beautiful.
