Not bad

Quick simple trail. Fayetteville’s little gem. They’ve been constructing a mountain bike trail through but doesn’t mess up the flow of the original trail. Great daily run.

Short trail down to the bluffs and the waterfall. Another trail that is several miles down the dirt road and not heavily trafficked. We didn’t scramble down below the waterfall but we did find the spot mentioned in other reviews.

Beautiful spot away from the crowds with cascades, waterfalls and the creek carving the canyon. It’s a short hike where you can spend a lot of time scrambling on the boulders and exploring around the next bend. The gravel road is in rough shape and 4wd is recommended.

Great trail, prob closer to easy vs moderate but enjoyable terrain

beautiful hike!! not terribly difficult but I wouldn't take it if I was shaky.

Great trail!! The hike isn't too tough unless you're out of shape like me.

Great trail. Lots of areas to explore below the main trail once you get near the pedestal rocks including caves and natural springs. Will definitely be coming back

Great trail with diverse rocky terrain! We did turned into the lake loop. Enough space for heavy traffic and but you still feel secluded. Our 7 month old lab did Great on and off the leash. This lake is not swimming friendly. The trail head has a pic of what looks like large water moccasins with a sign that states “swimming in the lake is not recommended.” We did see a snake on St. Patty’s day. Thanks St. Patrick!

Fun going down, not so fun coming back up! Short round trip with some amazing scenery.

The trail was great. However, I recommend AllTrails removes fishing from the things to do. There is no place on the hike where you can get close enough to water to fish. Well, unless you scale down an incredibly steep, cliff like overhang.

Nice hike along King’s River. Waterfalls ♥️

I loved this trail. As you begin your hike don't let the dry creek bed concern you. Most of the year the creek flows underground. It remains dry until just before you reach the natural bridge. You can walk beside the creek under it. Be careful of slippery rocks. There are two small caves just above the natural bridge. They are fun to explore but are not the one with the waterfall. The trail gets steeper as you hike to Eden Falls. There is a nice overhang to explore there. The trail continues very steeply up to the cave. At one point you must crawl before it opens to a room with the waterfall. There were plenty of children and elderly people who went back successfully, but it gets so low before it opens up the you start to believe you can't go any further. Once you get to the back it is well worth the bumped knees and head. I recommend a strong flashlight the will illuminate the room well. It is always recommend to have at least three sources of light. I was in a cave once and accidentally broke two lights. I always carry plenty now. Have fun!

Great afternoon hike for the family.

Beautiful views along this quiet trail in mid-March. The marked trail includes a descent down a fairly steep pass, however there is a slightly longer, hike around the bluff that meets with a wide path that takes you down into the valley leading to Sams Throne.

Pretty, yet very short hike. Would be nice to see when there is a lot of water moving. Would not recommend making the trip down the dirt road with anything less than a 4x4.

Quick and relatively easy

Water fall was refreshing. Too bad caves are closed.

Great views, will have to come again.

We hiked this trail this past week. It has a waterfall, caves, and beautiful rock formations. The trail is not difficult and good for families. Highly recommend for those that love nature.

We hiked out to the Hawksbill Crag this past week. It was a very enjoyable hike. It was not very difficult, about 3.2 miles with about 100 ft of ascent. My 4 yr old daughter handled the hike without issue. The view from the Crag was something to behold. Highly recommend this hike.

It was a pleasant hike, well marked trail. Easy to lightly moderate.

Love the views from the Lodge, the trail was nice. Took my time and enjoyed the plants and greenery.

It’s an alright trail. Probably better when the trees aren’t all dead in the winter. It turns into a long stretch of the same thing towards the end, good views though.

LOVED this trail. The terrain was varied and interesting, walking most of the trail by the creek was perfect, and the waterfall was gorgeous. You even get to hike back on a bluff next to the lake. Perfect distance for families and dogs too. Would do this hike again for sure!

Nice scenic short hike

Short easy, enjoy the petroglyphs
