HikingGreat!

Nice view and clear, easy trail! Lots of side trails that lead you to go see cool rocks. Come after a rain though to see the waterfall and creek in action! Fun for the whole family!

I love this trail, but people have recently trashed the camp site on the loop. If you come out do your part by bringing a trash bag and help clean the trail!

This is closer to 3.3 miles if you follow the current gravel/packed dirt path. I think the original was mapped by kayak. :) This isn’t overly difficult save a couple of water crossings. Inclined are few and far between. Great hike!

I enjoyed this trail but during the summer months the vegetation is overgrown and the trail becomes even thinner due that vegetation. Be aware that there will be thorns hanging within the walking area along with horse manure. The manure can be hard to maneuver around on such a thin trail. This is not a trail I would recommend for children.

If you are going during the pandemic you will want to wear a mask even outside on this short trail. There is a TON of traffic on this trail. Personally I would rather take a long hike and earn the views but these views are very good!

Easy hike and very manageable trails. make sure you pay attention going down the stairs to get to the outer trail, I was not and had a minor scare as my leg went through one of the stairs. Everything was excellent except that flaw.

HikingOff trailPrivate property

We were warned by other reviews: no cell reception which means no working app and no map access. That topped by no sign and barely a couple of markers. So we got lost. Not terribly but our 3.6 miles hike turned into 6. Started overshooting the first part following the cliff. Missed the Sharp left turn where one has to climb down a few big rocks to head into the canyon. Had coverage at that point so found it ok. Then you end up on a railroad track for a bit. Finding when to go back left from there is a bit of a guess. From that point on, no cell coverage, u r on your own and hv to interpret a rather overgrown trail with forks with no markers. We made it to the Jackson Fall fine eyeballing it. Things went south after that when we tried to find a way back up the cliff to the parking lot close by. Couldn’t find it! Ended up backtracking and not finding that small rocky trail past the railroad track. Again eyeballed an area which we rock climbed and got lucky that it took us back to it. Nice scenery and varied terrains. Saw lots of climbers which was cool. Would hv given that trail 4 to 5 stars if correctly marked. That’s a shame....

HikingGreat!

Much steeper than the map led us to believe. My mother with COPD could not complete the trail. Beautiful greenery, lots of insect wildlife to look at. There look to be ruins or something along the creek that the trail follows. Going to have to do some research on that. Nice and shady!

Very buggy, glad I brought bug spray. There were very few people. Dogs are allowed and there are places to fish.

A pretty decent walk, but not worth passing the extreme amounts of people. on a Thursday!! If you really enjoy hiking, you can afford to miss this one.

Good trail but be prepared with a lot of bug spray! Trails laden with many flying insects.

Great for beginners, kids, and dogs. Trail is a little overgrown in places, and a couple of washes out spots. Be careful!

Pay attention to the trail markings. There is a horse trail as some of the other hikers if this trail have mentioned, that intertwines with the hiking trail and in places, the difference between the two is hard to recognize. Excellent hike. Beautiful tree canopy cover and lovely streams throughout with bike pools in them. It finally cooled down. GET OUT THERE. :) Some poison ivy and check for ticks.

We loved it! Lots of photo opportunities! Scenery was great! Just the right amount of challenge for newbies. Can't wait to go back during fall colors!

Nice set of trails, none of which were too taxing. Incredible view of the river at the lookout on the sunset trail. Beautiful wildflowers (and butterflies) on the prairie view. The criticisms of the pine trail are legit, specifically regarding the overgrowth and proliferation of poison ivy. The rock scramble on pine trail was fun, though not as difficult as I would have expected for a trail marked as 'hard'

View are the best in the area. But unfortunately hard to enjoy with yuppie moms screaming at yuppie kids. Still worth the 30 mins though

HikingBugsGreat!

Great easy trail 17 yr old son wore nice tennis shoes instead of hiking boots (even tho we were just in the Rockies. And loved it!) and complained about going over the little rocks with not even a splash of water in it. We wore bug spray. My teen didn't and complained about the bugs. Most people wore masks. Cute dog was swimming in the pond created by the waterfall. Nice to just sit and watch. Only about 75 degrees, half sunny, no wind today. Wednesday. Main parking by visitors center at starved rock was crazy busy and full and lines at the port a potties. so we just drove a little down the road to this trail. Good decision
