Worth the hike once you get to the waterfalls! Lots of poison ivy, oak and sumac all over the trails but a great trail.

Great trail. Can be a bit difficult at times.

Awesome trail, great workout. Great views both in the woods and at the viewing area mid way. Don’t forget to sign notebook when you use the trail. Blazes and signs to keep you on track. Best trail I have been to in Alabama... so far.

Great trail, beautiful views. My six year old came with me and did not have any problem’s. One spot where trailed forked that was a little confusing, but the all trails map kept us on track. Will definitely return.

Park is well kept, plenty of parking, small playground, a few pavilions, and restrooms are available (yes they were clean). It rained a little the night before but this trail drains well as there were not puddles to dodge or jump in. Only draw back from this little gem is the trailhead isn't clearly marked and it takes a little wandering to get started. Otherwise, nice little adventure. There are additional turns and twist that I didn't take that would be worth exploring.

If you follow directions to the trail you will find there is no parking, go just beyond the round about and park in the back of middle school parking lot. This is a paved walking trail; don't expect to get your hikers dirty. It is very well maintained and a peaceful walk. It offers mostly shade but there are brief portions of the trail that are full sun.

Claiming FKT only because I can't find another recording or report. Counterclockwise in 4:52:14. as of 7.14.19 entire trail is super overgrown. Missed a few blazes on the big scramble/climb that starts around mile 3, but when in doubt on this trail always assume you're headed upward. Garmin read 18.98 miles with 3,800+ ft of elevation gain.

This was a great hike. I took a youth group ages 13-18 and one of my leaders is 60. Two of our guys were first time hikers and they handled it well. There is NO waterfall, but the trail is in great shape considering it’s a wilderness trail. We took a wrong turn at one point and didn’t realize it until we were about 1.5 miles down. The trail makes a complete u-turn and goes through a campsite when it turns around. There were people at the campsite when we got there and the trail appears to veer to the left... it does NOT! (We went to the left after you walk across the bridge at the beginning.... this is the opposite way most people go- if you go the opposite way we did, please consider this when you get to the campsite u-turn) Other than this spot, the trail is very easy to follow and the blowdown is very minimal considering. They have obviously been doing maintenance. The hogs were very active as we went about a half mile and every tree was rooted around from them. They also sniffed out our campsite while we were sleeping, but didn’t bother a thing. We wouldn’t have even known had a leader not woken up and seen/heard them. We also saw a copperhead on the trail and it was not happy with us, but did slither under a tree finally. All in all, great hike!

Run this flat trail all the time. Not too crowded and rather shady and quiet. Get to see the horses and sometimes deer crossing the trail.

trail is not well marked. You park in the Hurricane Park parking lot and then walk up the road to the trail head so park right when you enter the paying lot. The trail is in good shape and is easy hike. We added the South loop to make the total home about 4.5 miles and we were able to do it in about 2 hours.

A decent short trek. Really interesting geological features. Nice temperature drop in the summer months. As others mentioned, admission is pricey.

Gorgeous trail, but be prepared to scramble over rocks and around fallen trees. Very narrow and overgrown in places, and I’m sure I’m covered in poison ivy and oak, but I’ll definitely be back! Pretty bummed that camping is no longer allowed, because we passed some amazing campsites!

Great little hike. FYI there are several trees down on the trail

No waterfalls this time around. They were dried up, but there are a lot of cool rock formations on the orange trail. My 5 year old son loved climbing up and on the rocks along the trail. We had a great time despite no waterfalls.

Simple walk down from parking lot to observation area. Falls are beautiful.

Nice, pretty trail through the woods.

Great trail. There are lots of intersecting trails, so it will be almost impossible to do this loop w/o downloading the maps from the app. Well worth it.

This trail is easy, and the falls are beautiful. Cliff diving is available in some areas just make sure you know where to jump.

Easy hike that takes you to two waterfalls. The first waterfall you have to climb down to get access which is a little harder but so worth it.

Laurel Falls and Lost Falls were both dried up. The Blue Trail had 5/6 trees down across it and was somewhat overgrown in places. The Orange Trail was fine. The hike was nice and easy but the scenery is not what we'd hoped for.
