Hiked this in the rain, it was great seeing all the raging waters of Harris Creek intersect the Cassotot river. excellent vitsa points. whatch your step, some of the uphill trail has loose shale

great hike, beautiful water falls and overlook. pretty empty at 8am in parking lot. very full at 10am when we left

Great little trail with awesome views!

Great trail that weaves back and forth over a creek. Has tree cover, small bluffs, small waterfall, birds, and insects.

This was a great little trail! The frequent views of the lake were stunning. For me, it was just the right difficulty level- difficult enough that it didn’t feel like just a walk, but easy enough that I wasn’t completely worn out at the end.

Really liked the trail but it was poorly marked and confusing so I missed a loop.

Beautiful hike while the dogwoods were in bloom. Great overlook of the Lake. Mildly strenuous at first but gets easier once you reach the overlook. Nicely marked!

Outstanding trail! I did this one earlier this month with Memphis Outdoor Adventures. I would definitely do it again!

The trailhead sign says 4 hours. We got out in 4 minutes under that, even with the side trip to the grotto falls and a lunch break, so I would say the time estimate is spot on.

Fun but crowded. Only second half of the hike was fun once off the stone path. The cave was awesome and definitely be best part!

Had a great time, Trail could have been marked a little better, because when the OT combined there was no more markings for Brushy. Great walk tho !

Hate what they’ve done to it

Great trail.

beautiful waterfall!!!!

Expose to nature at It's finest with waterfalls, caves, underground rivers, creeks.

This was a nice, short hike with several interesting features: a natural bridge, a pretty creek, interesting bluffs, a cave, and frequent benches providing great places to sit, have a snack, and enjoy God's creation. We were early in the season and during the week, so had the place to ourselves. Definitely worth your time.

Good trail, not signed all that well. hard to know where you are. Without a doubt it is well worth it. I will be back to ride it again.

So beautiful, especially once you get along the ridge there are huge boulders that are just sitting along the edge. Awesome scenery and gorgeous overlooks!

Gorgeous hike! Very rocky, make sure to wear safe shoes. All uphill going out so be prepared to get a good workout!

Take binos to see eagles.

Make sure to add time for exploring.

My son and I hiked this trail this weekend after almost 2 inches of rain the night before. The fall creek was high and moving. There was a lot of water on the trail and a few places where we had to cross the creek. Our feet were soaked. It was worth it. Overall an easy hike with great views.

This turned out to be my favorite hike of our short trip. I'm generally a stickler for staying on the real trail, but we were in Jasper talking to a forest service ranger who told us that many people didn't know you could walk down to the stream early on and hike along it to the Glory Hole. So that's what we did. It was beautiful! There were lots of little cascades and interesting rocks along the way. Once you get to the Glory Hole itself, the stream, the bluffs, the undercut, the glory hole waterfall, and everything is just fantastic! Be sure to see it from above as well. Again, we had the place to ourselves, enjoyed our snacks, and thanked God for such a wonderful place.

Okay, you can't call a walk of under a quarter of a mile a hike, but it was still fun. There was enough water flowing over the bluff that we got the triple falls instead of the double that we hear sometimes occurs. They are small in terms of water volume, but still nice and taller than many in the area. It was a nice cozy place, the stream was beautiful, and it's worth the steep drive down to get there which is admittedly the hardest thing about this one.

I wanted to hike a nature trail on dirt. This trail is paved with art exhibits and lots of construction for more art exhibits. It took the fun out of the word hike.

This trail no longer exist.

Nice trail, well marked.

Great trail! Definitely worth the hike.

I've been wanting to hike this for a long time and, while it was decent, it's not on my list to do again. The trail itself is nice, but nothing to write home about. When you get to a short, relatively steep descent across the little creek, you can go right which will go along the bluff or left (upstream) for a short period, then it will curve around parallel to the other trail and merge just before the Hawksbill Crag if you want an easier trail for some reason. Don't get me wrong, it was pretty nice: sticking out there all by itself. Take turns taking photos of each other. Standing on the crag itself, you don't even know your sticking out over the edge. It wasn't as big or as high as we thought it would be from the pictures we've seen. Again, it's worth doing, check it off your list, but I liked other trails in the area much better.
