We went there with our dog! There are few trails where you can bring your dog (on a leash). Was really beautiful and peaceful. We even found a small piece of creek to refresh. We’ll definitely return!

Beautiful place, so quite. We took foldable chairs and sat next to the lake. We went there with our dog as well. We’ll definitely return!

Great trail that follows the creek for a good distance. We did an out&back because there were some fallen trees blocking the path

Great views. Tip: $8 parking fee and opened seasonally

Went clockwise for this hike. Took about 3.5 hours to complete. The trails are beautiful, lots of different variety of plants and trees. Most of the trail is along the river. Note: this trail is not at the main Henry C. Park., you have to drive to the other section of the park. Overall decent workout and lovely scenery.

Ideal hiking difficulty — either direction you choose on the loop is more or less ascending until about the halfway point, and then it’s a good descent. I did the loop clockwise, and luckily I ran into people who had already made a wrong turn at the 5-mike mark to put me on the correct path and prevent me from hiking an extra mile or two. Hiking along the creek was pleasant. The AllTrails map is a must have!

Awesome trail. It's actually 9 miles and if you take wrong turns like we did then it becomes 10 miles :D But don't worry it will still be very beautiful and enjoyable. The trail runs adjacent to the Fall Creek and that adds to the beauty of the trail. There are a lot of fallen trees and path going under those trees or go over them. The trail can get confusing since there are places where multiple diversions are possible, so make sure to keep a Google maps or All Trails map on so that you don't get lost. There are a few small waterfalls too on the trail.

Beautiful trail. Moderate. Closer to 9 miles than 8 miles according to my Apple Watch GPS. Took about 4.5 hours to complete including a few rest breaks. Beautiful walk in the redwoods. This trail passes by “Big Ben” giant redwood. The trail is washed away for about a 10 yard section on the eastern fall creek section of the loop but if it is passable by just making your way across the large tree and rocks that are over the creek.

Great, easy hike that puts you among the trees right out of the parking lot. The trees tower above you, it's difficult not to take pictures around every turn! You will see the Mother and Father tree (with signage and a description of their size), as well as a few trees that have been burned out in the middle, allowing people to step inside the resulting "cave." Great wide gravel path the whole way. I went with a 3 year old and a stroller and both handled it great! The parking lot gets crowded very quickly however, even in January! So, arrive early or feel free to continue driving to the picnic areas and parking there. Highly recommend this (or any) of the trails here!

Awesome spot !

Amazing views and a good workout for a beginner like me. Some steep parts but manageable. We seen deer, wild turkeys and a banana slug! Lots of places to have a picnic and good pricing for boat rentals. Definitely coming back here again.

Such a beautiful hike. We did the highland loop trail; it was very peaceful and had lots to offer with views at the top looking down on the reservoir and stops along the shoreline. The trail is dog friendly, but don’t count on letting them go for a swim, they have strict rules.

horseback riding

Great place to take the horses to take a dip. Close to Graham Hill campground where they have overnight facilities for horses. Can get crowded in the summer, but it’s a beautiful park, and all of the trails are fun. We can do a lot of it at a canter even with groups of kids.

This is one of the most beautiful Hikes I have ever hiked.With slight drizzle and cloudy skies , it was a amazing hike and I had stopped by the redwood for nearly an hour to enjoy the nature's beauty. For the most part of trail you will have the pristine creek running by beside the trail. the ascend and descend alternates itself and gives you a pleasure of a good workout. Although there is something about the trail I would like to mention. If you are taking the loop through Fall creek south fork trail and join back the Fall creek trail after hiking Big Ben Trail, then after hiking 1.3 miles in Fall creek trail from Big Ben along the creek, you will find that the path has been completely eroded and there is no way to proceed further. You would have to take a switch back to reach the Truck Trail, then hike thru Ridge Trail and S-Cape Trail to join the fall creek trail back. The switch back is not a well marked trail path and you have to figure it out moving back from the closed path say by .2 miles , this increases the trail distance to 10.3 miles and is not what that has been mentioned.
