The trails here are very dangerous and slick. I fall and hurt myself. My boyfriend slid almost fall over a cliff and lost his walking stick. If you go here be extremely careful and let someone know where you are going.

Rocky trail so watch where you’re walking. Had it not been a cloudy day, the majority of this trail
would be in the sun. As all Devou parks, the signage has a lot to be desired. At least there are some on this one, though.

I was very disappointed in this trail. The signage is nonexistent (look at my photos to see the poles but no signage). Also the trail is very rocky so you have to watch every step or you’ll twist an ankle.

Definitely easy, not moderate. Gorgeous lake views and colorful foliage in the fall. A fair amount of pokestops along the way.

amazing

best mountain bike trails in Louisville

The overlook is very beautiful. Only downfall is where the little cave the trail is COVERED in poison ivy, not a lot of people while hiking either.

love this place. so peaceful and great workout for me. perfect length and test of physical fitness. Would definitely recommend as ive been going for over 10 years now. Beautiful waterfalls and great view if you hike to the top. dog friendly and low traffic. there is a easy paved walking trail at top for those who cannot complete hiking trails and there is seperate rd to this. also easier trails across rd with ponds and creek that is a peaceful quiet setting and has picnic tables.

We enjoyed this trail this morning. The blacktop path was nice but exploring the trails along the creek were the best!
Not your typical “hiking trail” but great for pictures and a cool dip in the pool below the falls.
Great parking and great starter hike for the little ones!

Really easy loop-trail, you can’t get lost. There were a ton of spider webs crossing the trail when I went. The ‘scenic lookout’ view was completely covered by trees. The view from the gravel parking lot was pretty cool

Keep an eye out for snakes. I saw about 7 babies and one large black one about 5ft. long. Other than the snakes it was a nice and peaceful trail.

Awesome trail with lots to see and do. Has a beautiful waterfall and caves to explore. We did the otc trail. Will definitely be coming back. They also have bald eagles.

Awesome trail but not well marked but every trail comes back to the place you started so you can’t get lost

Don’t go in March - April.... unless you don’t mind knee deep mud and mud skating. By the time the mid drys the white bass is running and by then the parks service is starTing to open the gates. It is then that they want to charge you 2.00 to walk about .4 mile of muddy and swampy road. Do yourself a favor, cross the low water bridge and go to the other side. The fishing is better and they consider the price of fishing and hunting license to be sufficient enough for fishing.

half way can be a bit steap and slick but the waterfall is beautiful.

Nice trail but the bridge is still closed. There is no other detour across the creek. Reversed the loop to get back to the trailhead. No big deal as the trail is easy, pleasant.

Pretty straight forward. Has 2 paths that run almost parallel and cross each other at times, so even while on the creek just look left or right and pick a path or hike it's entirety as a "loop". The waterfall isn't that great but I'm sure it has better days.

Did this trail this past Sunday morning. Easy to find once I got parked in the parking area by the bridge. No trail markers but was able to locate with no problem. I was worried the falls would not be running because the stream was dry. It was running but not much. Beautiful area to hike back to.

Mileage is incorrect. We did 4.2 and didn’t do all of it. Trails are incorrectly and confusingly marked. Be sure to take a photo of the trail map. You’ll need it because the names on the signs are wrong coming down. Not good for kids. Hike up is fairly steep. Loop trail at the top is mostly flat and lovely. I can imagine on weekends this trail is packed with bikes. I saw several on a Thursday! The trails are good but narrow. All in shade except very beginning.

This trail is a nice quick hike. Has a few slight uphill grades and crosses a creek a few times. Nothing hard. I took my 13 and 10 year old and they had no problems. The woods are really nice but a storm blew in a week or so ago and there are a lot of trees down. They have been cut off the trail but kind of take away from the beautiful scenery.

Easy hike, runs along the river with a nice little rock to sit and enjoy the water about 1/2 way through.

Great to walk, tough to bike bc of gravel

We hiked this trail over the weekend. It was very beautiful, quiet and peaceful. A very beautiful place and we will be going back again

Great 3mi loop in Grayson Lake State Park. Trail head is by the basketball court near the campground entrance. Thankfully they put up a new trailhead sign! Loop is well marked and well maintained. A nice walking stick is recommended as you'll encounter numerous spider webs across the trail, especially if you're the first one out that day. Follow the orange blaze markers to stay on the trail. The falls are really worth the hike, especially after a good rain. The first "half" of the trail(up to the falls) is a little boring. Some nice wildlife sightings occasionally, but nothing special. After passing the falls though, the trail follows the lake closely and you get some wonderful views of the lake and the rock cliffs surrounding it.

It was very tough hike getting back there. The trail is loaded with copperheads and rattlesnakes. The waterfall was a mere drip drop. It was not worth risking my life with all the poisonous snakes. No thanks.

Easy short walk and great views. You have to drive 5 miles on a bumpy gravel road to get to the trailhead. See princess arch while you’re here too.

longer than I thought. nice wildlife. not a ton of sights or views. I'd definitely go back
