This is our "every night" trail, we see deer, beavers, Great Blue Herons, hawks, snakes, fish, turtles. Such a great place for an evening walk. Mostly shaded.

slightly challenging but fun! it was muddy and humid when we went but nothing unbearable. Wearing dri fit clothing helped with that. There were about 5 campsites along the trail before the warerfall that I think would be great to stay at.

Like previous reviewers, I want to emphasize that this route is only the rim trail, and nothing beats getting one of the 100 per day passes they issue in the visitor center to hike for the gorge floor. That is where you will find a really fun rock scramble along the river, and where you find Sliding Rock, a giant, natural water slide. SO FUN! We arrived about 9:30 on a Tuesday morning one July and had no trouble getting a pass. The climb back up out of the gorge is also a fun challenge.

Short but uphill hike to the falls. One bench about halfway up to rest. Path is well maintained. Falls are pretty but I thought they would be bigger. Lots of white rhododendrons in bloom first week in July.

great easy trail for kids :) we had out of town guests and this was a perfect trail to fit everyone's skill level.

The previous gentleman was not kidding about the ticks - I have pulled NO LESS than two dozen off my dog and me since yesterday, and that was after repeated coats of bug spray! The trail is not well trafficked and so there are spots that are a bit overgrown, which adds to the charm. I walk with a cane and there are parts that were too narrow to use my cane next to me. This is not a complaint, just be prepared for it. One tree covers the path, but it has been there for a while and is not too much of a challenge to get over. The trail follows a pretty strenuous down, and then up, hill hike in a relatively short period of time. Even my four-legged companion was wiped after this one. The lack of city noise and other hikers make this a top hike in my opinion.

An AMAZING trail if you’re a sucker for water and nice views.

Relatively easy and short hike to the overlook. Beautiful views and trail is well maintained. Dog friendly. Outhouse available in parking area.

This was an awesome hike. There are a couple of waterfalls and even tho the las third of the hike is pretty much just trees, once you get to PK the view is breath taking. I would say pack a bottle of water and a lot of energy... it’s totally worth the sore legs on the next day.

Very nice place to hiking

Took the family. We went to the falls, then a bit up the Benton-Mackey for only a total of ~2 miles. Nice little hike. The falls was the best part.

Never saw a river. We went for a trail run and I believe we walked most of the paths there. Came out once in what looked like someone's cornfield...still no river. Where did we go wrong?

This was our first trail to backpack overnight. The scenery is beautiful. It is a pretty hard trail the first 2 miles and the last 2 miles. There are 4 campsites. The campsites just have a flat spot for your tent and a fire pit. The only complaint was that campsite one was not marked and was right on the trail. The trail is a little grown over at places with tall grass and poison oat so be sure to wear appropriate clothing and bring bug spray. This is black bear country so be smart. We will definitely be returning.

Very fun and scenic trail

Worthwhile trip to see the falls. Great workout. Thankfully dogs are welcome on the hike.

difficult, but gets easier the more you do it. It starts off easy but that changes quickly. Pace yourself on the way up and down. it's like you're going straight up, so on the way down it's straight down. The view is beautiful at the top. There's an old war grave/memorial which is what the Disney Trail was named after. Once you pass it you come to almost like an outdoor church area with benches and a podium. It is beautiful! Hard but worth it! Trails are not smoothed out or anything like that. There are rocks, roots, dips etc.

Great overlook of the river.

A fun hike, but it lacks a view and a “payoff” for the climb.

Very easy hike but one of the families favorites. My 3 yr old and 6 yr old have no trouble with this hike and love climbing the rocks and playing in the water. The swimming hole at the upper falls is a great place to cool off.

Great easy trail alongside Moccasin Creek with several waterfalls!

my partner and I hiked this trail last weekend, it was cooler and breezy which made the hike very nice. Spectacular overlooks, changing terrain, waterfalls, mountains. We had a great time. We passed about 8 people in the entire 8+ miles, I think half of them asked if we had seen any bears, apparently bears are prevalent at fort mountain SP. We did not see any bears by the way...this is an excellent hike, we would do it again. It took about 4.75 hours to complete, and we stopped for lunch on the trail and at one of the overlooks. We like to hike at a pretty moderate pace.

Very easy, well-marked trail. I hiked it with my 73 yr-old father, 8 yr-old daughter and our dog. Great for this, though be careful of alligators near the water with your dog. Also, parts of the trail aren't shaded and it can get hot, so bring water. Lots of places to stop and sit. A very nice easy hike. Main trail is marked red. Short trail is yellow. Don't miss the cypress forest boardwalk just off the main trail. It's really neat. You likely won't see another hiker.

Nice views on this hike. Unfortunately, the trail has not been kept up well, so keeping on the trail got more and more difficult the further out we got. We made it to sign post 33 and decided to turn around. We were probably only a few tenths of a mile from the end, but the trail became hard to find. We followed the advice in a prior review and found the trail head across from campsite 4 in loop A. Nice spot, just needs TLC.
