I thoroughly enjoyed this park. I didn’t know what to expect on the paved roads but once I got off onto the trail, it was great! The Gorge is very rocky & under the falls was extremely slippery. The falls was simply amazing. So serene.

Beautiful trail. Path to the gorge is NOT marked and can be very long if you go the wrong way.

Nice park. If you want to get off the paved path, take the trail to the suspension bridge from the gorge entrance. Not for young children.

An ok trail. Not much to see and clearly made for mountain biking.

Parked by chapel and descended down by the bench just past the viewing area. Primitive “path” that is basically scaling down rocks that puts you close to the falls. Moderate climb down rocks. Go slow to maneuver down the rocks as this is not an official trail and unseasoned hikers shouldn’t try. Took the entire trail to the suspension bridge to return. Waterfall is amazing and cool legend associated with the name

Parked by the chapel and took the gravel road to the gorge hike. The main trail is connected with several smaller trails leading to various places and there’s not a lot of signage for the trail so it’s very easy to get off the main trail but as long as you follow the river you will end at the falls. The area under the falls is very muddy and slick. However, all the effort was worth the amazing view. We took our pups and they did ok but all the rocks and mud make it a little harder for them.

Wish there were more signs on ways to get out. We left after 5 so had to jump the fence to get to the car because I didn’t realize that you did not have to pay to hike the trail. If you just want to hike down go towards to falls and get down there that way instead of going to the park entrance. My 3 year old completed it with us (with 4 other children) so we went slow and played a lot, but it was lots of fun. The plants were amazing, but only wildlife we saw were .

Challenging at times but a beautiful trail to experience. Walk under Falls is slippery at times but definitely worth the effort.

Just follow the trail. They could use more signs at intersections. Be sure to go behind the falls, but very slippery so be careful!!

the trail that's suggested stays in concrete or gravel paths and takes you to the pay to enter part if the park at the start. Too easy and boring. if you go past the pavilion just a little way there is a Gorge Entrance sign pointing you down the path. You can climb down here and get to the falls quicker and the come back past that point and continue by the banks for a long while. after the suspension bridge you can turn back around and find the path back to the campground. pretty rocky so wouldn't recommend flip flops. my plotted course is actually fun and moderate difficulty.

We took the Falls Trail from behind the park to the falls. Very scenic well traveled but jagged in spots. There were some folks who were hiking in flip-flops which I definitely would not recommend. Due to jagged out crops, I would strongly suggest investing in a good pair of hiking shoes like Merrill’s. We wanted to add some extra distance so we went to the overhanging bridge trail which added 1 mile to the total. Don’t plan on doing this trail pushing a baby carriage. Fee is six dollars to enter the park. Trail starts at the gorge trail head. Beautiful scenery. Can be slippery underneath the falls.

The safest way to descend the gorge/ see the Suspension bridge: park in campgrounds parking, walk to the left of the chapel and pass the RV grounds. Go down the ramp and over the bridge leading to the Black Creek Trails. After crossing the bridge, stay on the gravel road until you hit a mile marker that says 0.6 miles. On the left, there is a sign for Suspension bridge, and the descent is well marked. At the bottom, go right for the bridge. (Left will head back to the falls, and becomes more challenging). This route to the Suspension bridge is easy and would be my recommendation for any families.

We absolutely loved this hike. We had a good time on top of the falls and an even better time behind the falls. The trek was very fun

Beautiful and lush with greenery and many wildflowers in spring. Easily accessible trails from Noccalula. The non-gorge trails are technically easy for hikers. You can add multiple trails together to make a 4-6 hour hike, but a 1 hour walk is also possible. Paths are well cleared by the city, almost no roots or stones make it great for cyclers. Hikers should head to Dog Hill and Witches Brew for a little climb and scenery change, cyclers take G Force for a straight downhill. The river paths, Jeep Hill and Family Loop get the most traffic. Tips: spring is not too hot yet, but morning is still better. Didn’t see any snakes but was careful. You need to pack out trash. Not too buggy, but I recommend bug spray. Park at the camp grounds. Restrooms closed during covid.

Great trail. Be prepared to get muddy if you climb behind the waterfall. It’s definitely worth it and not as treacherous as you’d think. My two young children had no problem navigating the rocks and we were never precariously close to the water yet we had an amazing view of the backside of the waterfall. Only disturbing part was the amount of litter and graffiti on this trail. I have done a lot of hiking during this quarantine and this was the most littered trail I’ve seen as well as the most graffiti. The trail could also use more signage!

We decided to make a 3.3 mile loop starting at the Wedding chapel (which is free). If you go to the Black creek trail and take a right to the suspension bridge and loop back around the gorge trail which takes you behind the falls. There is a trail off the gorge path that takes you down to the beachy area of the falls where you can take a swim. After this it was a quick trek out. This was a moderate hike but my bouncy 4yr old and my less bouncy 64yr old mom and dad both made the hike so it can be that bad. We did have to help both over the very slippery rocks behind the falls but it was not a big deal. My 3 kids enjoyed swimming and we went early at 9:45 so we avoided a big crowd and had lunch at the water before hiking out. We found the trails pretty easy to find and taking a picture of the trails on the big board at the start along w all trails gps was enough. Fun hike, mostly shaded and great waterfall!

Awesome trail! I was a bit sad that there were no evident indications of which path leads you where when headed down to the bottom of the waterfall.. Overall, beautiful park and I will definitely go again to explore the other trails!

Take the Gorge trail to the falls. Be sure to go behind the falls to experience something very unique. Beautiful place. The hike can be strenuous at times based on the path you choose to take. Overall, the property is amazing and a great place for any level of hiking enthusiast.
