We went on a hike here yesterday and it was wonderful. If you do the Rockefeller by itself, then it's an 8 miler. Adding the seven hollow trail is what makes it over 14 miles. During a 90° day, it's tough but well worth it, alot of shade. The sites were spectacular. If you dont wanna do a hike that long, you don't have to. This trail has 5-6 trails within it that range from 1-4 miles. Definitely a hidden gem between 2 national parks and worth the trip!

We didn’t get to see the fall which was disappointing but the trail it self was beautiful! We hike a lot and this trail was shorter than most but I would say it’s pretty moderate not easy. My dog loved the lake at the end!

Nice trail, some great views of the lake and it was relatively flat. A breeze for my 10 year old and not too challenging with my toddler strapped to my back, either. Would definitely recommend, but get out there early in summer months because it was HOT

Beautiful trail. .25 mile in we came across a doe and her fawn. Trail could be better marked at the boulders. Not much shade halfway through the trail. Bring lots of water!

On 7/15/18, I hiked both this and the Yellow Rock trails, which I suggest doing. The FF trail was nice and peaceful, and provided me with various opportunities to explore the creek bed. The YR trail was more vertical, and provided numerous spectacular vistas. To top it off, there is a knee-deep “swimming hole” near the YR trailhead.

It was a beautiful, scenic trail. We took lots of pictures of the surrounding mountainsides. Wish I could say I’d be back when the waterfall was flowing, but I came from out of state. We explored the campgrounds as well. I’d definitely recommend the park to anyone who loves camping and hiking.

Gorgeous trail and nicely shaded. Perfect for an easy outing. Probably my favorite trail of the weekend for its simplicity and beauty.

Kid friendly, great swimming place shallow rock in lake right below falls.
In summer, waterfall is not flowing, but still a nice hike with plenty to see.

Love this trail, but it really could use better signage at crossroads areas towards the end.

Today there were so many spiderwebs over the path and it was overgrown in areas, so not recommended in sandals.

Saw lots of wildlife, including a woodchuck, several deer, and some tiny frogs.

Water is really low right now so creek crossing isn't an issue.

Great view of waterfall! The walk down is easy. However, on the trip back up the last part will get your heart pumping!

Tough but doable.

A nice and easy hike along Lee Creek. We used it as a warm-up hike for our day. There are plenty of areas along the way to stop and splash around in the water too. Our dogs sure loved it!

A super nice workout!! The view is amazing. Was so much more than I expected. I’ll be coming back for sure

So I did this trail last year and to say it’s a rewarding hike is an understatement! I’m a big gal and it took me some time to get to the top (like 2 hrs) but it was such a rewarding view! It’s a bucket list hike and still so proud of myself. It’s mostly climbing btw not hiking.

Great trail! Beautiful views! Loved it!

beautiful hike! didnt see one person the entire way. bring a TON of water, sunscreen, and light clothing. i hiked this trail around 3pm and the sun and heat was almost unbearable. not a good first time hike and not for unexperienced hikers.

Great trail for a newer hiker. Took the family on this one. They got a little hot but did great. Will probably hike this one again. .

Great trails! Last time I was here in July of 2017, there was A LOT of spiders, so many I was nervous and decided to turn around. The other times I have gone, June 2015 and July 2016, not so many!

Nice hike through the woods. (I actually did the longer Little Clifty Creek trail.) Downgraded because the noise from the nearby shooting ranges was markedly audible for half the hike, as was traffic for about 3 miles of the hike; and there wasn't a nearby body of water at the end of the hike Note: There is a multi-trailhead parking about 2 miles down Townsend Ridge Rd, where one can access the Little Clifty or War Eagle trail; Townsend Ridge Rd is west on Rte 12 from the AllTrails designated trailhead.

Beautiful trail. A lot of people on the look outs who were kind of camped out made it a little less enjoyable, but if people don’t bother you, the trail is nice. Great in the spring with the dogwoods blooming and lots of flowing water.

A keeper, but with caveats. First, I suggest reversing the trail, starting at Cove Lake. (The trailhead is almost directly across from the Cove Lake entrance. If you do not want to pay the $5 fee for parking at the lake, there is room for two cars to park next to the trailhead.) Reasons to reverse the trail: its becomes up-down and you end up at the lake. The trail is 12+ miles one way. (I hiked only 4+ miles in.) Not a spectacular trail (at least the first 4 miles), but enjoyable.

Very easy hike. We went in the middle of the day in July so we weren’t expecting to see much wildlife but we saw a fawn in the grass beside the bird blind. We also saw lots of birds, frogs, lizards, and one little green snake. The trail was very well maintained with signs at the junctions.

Awesome hike! View from the top is totally worth it!!

Great trail!! A bit interesting for a 4,5,7 yr olds, but they still had a good time.

Great hike. Very scenic. Heavily trafficked on weekends. Worth it though.

My husband and I (50+) enjoyed our time on this trail. It was a good cardio/leg workout. We saw a mother deer and her two foal, and a snake. It was lying atop a mossy rock right after the overlook. It was the same color green.
The difference between the tornado ravaged area and the untouched area was varied.
This was a long hike that provided beautiful and varied scenic looks.

Loved it, very fun and exciting in the rain! Wear proper shoes!

Had my first ride at Slaughter Pen yesterday. Amazing trails, well manicured, and very challenging. Worth all the pain.

Great scenic views! Nice little hike around the lodge.
