I hike this trail with my parents and dogs and found it extremely fun although my parents were worn out by the end, do not hike this trail if you aren’t experienced or have problems with your knees or any other part of your leg.

I don't think I actually reached the trail because I had parked at Wildwood and headed toward the trail in about two and a half miles in I lost the trail. a storm had going through there earlier in the year and I don't think it's quite recovered yet. we'll try again another day.

this trail is great. It also happens to be near one of my favorite fishing spots.

I love this trail but do not like the fact that people do not have their dogs on a leash. I had two dogs growling and running up on me once there and have not been back. I am an animal lover but as someone who has been bitten by a dog I feel like everyone needs to keep their animals on a lease just out of respect to others and the fact that some people have a fear of dogs. Other than that the trail is very nice. I would be mindful of snakes this time of year as there is a lot of camouflage for them to hide in.

Nice loop trail. Pretty easy, good for conditioning.

It was nice! There are several trail choices to choose from once inside Mistletoe State Park, located in Appling, GA. My hubs, our 5 year old & I enjoyed our outing. We walked the Cliatt Creek Trail mentioned above & it was very pleasant. They had some wooden bridges to cross, sight hill with the one we followed but the kiddo kept up just fine so it was easy. Only thing I could see happening here is the trees/markings be repainted to make them more noticeable.

Really enjoyed this park. Admission $5 at the gate. Nice trails and lovely lake, though the "beach" is somewhat boggy (why I rated it only 4 stars). Mastiff enjoyed the swim, and I wished I had brought the kayak. I went on a Friday afternoon, and saw only one other person there. I would definitely go there again.

Beautiful views but we were told at the gate there is no where to hike.

Good hike! Nice views of the lake. Very easy. The bridge is out so I would double check the bridge is in working order before doing the hike again. Some very nice DNR officers gave me a ride back across the lake.

Very beautiful and wide Trail so if you have a big group this is a good Trail to go on...only downside was its near hunting ground so kinda nervous with my kids with me on that.

Alot of trails in this park. I completed the Rock Dam Trail today and had a great time. The only way to get to this trail is off of another trail. It can be somewhat confusing at first. 3 campsites on this trail. Completely went by the first one without noticing but site 2 and 3 seemed nice. Alot of water crossing. I think once you complete the Rock Dam Trail and the parts on the other trail that you have to take to get to it is roughly 9 miles all together. The beginning of the trails start at the park entrance and loop back around. A few of the marked trees had fallen but over all marked well. I will go back.

Really good trails that are well marked and maintained. From a maintenance standpoint the only negative is that there was a bridge out on the more remote area of the Rock Damn trail, but there was enough downed trees the creek could be crossed. There are hills on the trails, which sets it apart from a lot of the trails in the area, and it was more challenging than any of the sections of the Bartram Trail in the area. I will definitely hike here again.

This is a part of the CSRA Bartram Trail area, and it is primarily used by mountain bikers but I think this section of the trail is one of the better actual hiking areas around the area, however it isn't really challenging. There are some ups and downs but no elevation change greater than 100 feet and I'd probably put it closer to 60-80. It is pretty solitary and follows the section of the lake closely. While there are a few trees that are down, the course is extremely well marked and easy to follow. I will be hiking it again, along with the rest of the Bartram Trail.

Great trail. I've done this trail the past couple weekends, exploring different areas each time, and it's a good four hours or so. Nothing too horrid- my 8lb dog goes with me and has no issues. I think it's easier for him, honestly! Crossing logs and such to go over streams is a fun game for him.

Overall, the trails are really easy to hike through. That said, a few aren't clearly marked like the Rock Dam trail and it's easy to just follow the beaten path. The rest were fine and shaded perfectly.

Awesome park with a capital A. We camped at the walk in tent sites and had a 3 sides waterfront campsite. Next day we took a 11 mile hike to the backcountry sites. 2 stream crossings and about 400 ft elevation change several times. Overall, great weekend, next time I am backpacking in to the natural dam. Just to awesome to put into words.
