This was a nice area with the water view. My friend and i went on a morning hike and it was calm and relaxing. Well recommended for a short hike and calm setting.

Due to the topography, it can bet wet and buggy. Go in early spring or fall or in a dry period. Wet = bugs.
Has some pretty areas though.

Beautiful park with lots of wildlife.

It was sprinkling on and off when we went hiking, so there weren't any bikers on the tail (we did see two runners). This was a nice trail, I loved the signs of encouragement along the trail. Apart from the trailheads marked "Entrance" and "Exit Only" there seemed to be two other trailheads at the parking lot. Would love to explore those, as well.

Took this trail this morning. Half way you will come to an overlook of the 14 mile creek that runs off the Ohio River. Nice trail.

I really enjoyed this trail although it is tough and not for beginners. I highly recommend taking trekking poles. I did not have them and it was still doable but there are several tough areas where they would come in handy! There are a lot of elevation changes. Definitely a difficult trail and like I said before, not for beginners, but it’s beautiful! Word of advice, look for the white marks on trees if you aren’t sure where to go or if you lose the trail for a minute. Some areas can get a little confusing but the white marks on the trees helped keep me on track.

Wonderful trail, marked nicely

The falls are almost dried up at this time, down to a few trickles, still about my favorite trail, love the canyon and all the cliff views!

This is the trail that my children compare all other trails to. This trail is rugged with rock slopes and ridges to bounce off and climb up. There if a creek that runs through a good portion of the trail and admittedly it is just good fun.

Decent trails when you aren't crossing streets or walking through parking lots or shelter locations to get to the next secion of the trail. Wetlands were beautiful and walking along the lake was nice. Not very rugged at all.

Hiked in for the weekend and found a great campsite. They're not all easy to find- just look for the fire rings. Wonderful fall weather and great views. The hike in was pretty moderate but felt like it went quickly.
