Good trails.

The directions on this app are awful, just use Google maps to get to your destination. It had me driving an extra 30+ mins. I was furious because I've been to hidden falls hike before and would rate it at a 5, but not this apps direction guide.

This is a hidden gem. So beautiful and very well maintained. Family friendly. It's definitely on the top of the list for a must hike.

Moderate hike with shaded parts and following the river which makes it interesting. The falls and the lake are a beautiful place and destination to reach and admire.

Definitely a moderate hike that is uphill most of the way. I recommend getting to the trail early as it was already crowded with limited parking around 9 a.m. This was a good trail to hike, that led to a beautiful view of the dam, but won't do it again. There were simply too many people. Very dog friendly. We did find a side trail near the start that led down to the river and it was quiet.

Great hike, bit the trails aren't marked very well. Ended up making one major with turn that had all directions going back to the trail which was confusing.

Excellent hike but gets crowded with people and bikes so my advice is to go early.

Great moderate trail lots of up and down. Beautiful clean trail. A few water features. Bridges and river views.

Con: pet friendly trail do there was a lot of horse manure and dog poop on trail.

Will be going again.

Beautiful place around this time of year because everything is so green! There's water to potentially get in. The rangers do walk around suggesting to stay on trails. We also saw a family of wild pigs!!!

Beautiful Hike, about 7.5 miles long if you go South side all the way up to the bridge and back by North side. Expect to walk 4 hours. Few beautiful benches along the way to have a picnic! When parking lot is full, ranger gives a map to alternative parks, but if only one or two cars in line, it makes sense to wait for parking spot to become available. Beware of TICKS! Ticks BITE. Cell phone reception is mostly unavailable, so make sure app has complete map downloaded before you go out. Battery should drain by the end of the hike :) Don't regret the Great Egret trail! :)
