Went today and absolutely loved this trail!!! By far one of the easiest trails I've been on. The waterfall was gorgeous!!! Did see one snake, but that is to be expected. There was a couple gorgeous horses where we parked and they let the kids pet them. Beautiful scenery!

Beautiful scenery! Trail markings were a little confusing and be prepared to see evidence of the horses that are allowed on the trail.

Mostly narrow trail. Several significant inclines. Took our dog. Good workout. Almost all of it is in the shade during the summer.

This was a very nice a pretty trail it is paved all the way. there are places that are maked by the no trepassing that are posted by the US government so do not go off the trail. but it was a very peaceful walk for me and my dog both.

The Hill was insane but wasnt bad for a person like me that is half way in shape. The fort is not much to look at if you dont know what you are looking at. The view from the fort is amazing and totally worth walking up that hill.

We accessed this one from the Echo River trail. It's a connector trail and it's easy just like all the rest.

Nice paved trail. With stream coming off the cliffs. Will definitely be coming back.

This whole area is absolutely beautiful!

Awesome little hike. Waterfall is beautiful and we even caught a fish. Do not recommend going after it has rained, and wear good hiking shoes

Easy hike...a few old bridges and a nice cave at the end.

Nice trail. Marked adequate. Overgrown in a few places but for the most part very well maintained

good trail and the markings are clear. there are a couple hills that might be a struggle for small kids.

Beautiful and serene

Follow the creek past the falls and it is beautiful, I walked the creek all the way down,and took the trail back. The trail does no justice to how beautiful this place is.

Really neat paved hike. Easy with small hill incline. The old bridges are really cool. Small waterfalls and streams along the way.

Trail is littered with trash. Downed trees and washed out portions.

My 3 and 5 year old sons loved this hike. At roughly 2 miles it was the perfect length for them. With small elevation changes and lots to see they had a blast. I enjoyed it as well!

Crazy hard hills, but gorgeous area and a well preserved historical site. Biggest downside was that the trails were not well marked and I am unable to find a map of the site that detailed how all the trails tied together or where any of the other trails were.

Easy peasy walk. It’s a big circle around the battlefield with marker plaques along the way with the history. ‘Path’ is along a wooden fences. Criss cross fence could make some beautiful pictures.

Good trail. Well cared for. Clear markings.

My friend Justin and I just completed this trek yesterday. A backcountry combination of several pieces of trails through the serene and beautiful deep Red River Gorge. We parked a car at the Sheltowee Suspension Bridge parking area, then drove another to the Martin's Fork trailhead and hiked back to the first car. It took us just over 4 hours to complete the 8 mile excursion. The start of the hike up Martin's Fork is one the nicest places in the Gorge and a pleasant hike. Then you'll quickly ascend to the top of Tunnel Ridge, which will definitely get you warmed up for the rest of the hike! After this you'll descend to a low saddle between Tunnel Ridge and Koomer Ridge before ascending the latter. From there you'll descend the remainder of the hike and follow Chimney Top Creek all the way down to the Red River. Most of the trail sections selected for this hike are very lightly trafficked and the sense of space and seclusion out in the middle of this section of the Gorge is superb. Great day hike. Bring lots of water, some good snacks and chocolate, and give yourself plenty of time!

This trail is by appointment, have to be guided in. Better make contact before you make the trip,

Great hiking for all skill levels even wheel chair accessible. Beautiful scenery waterfalls, springs, caves. You are walking on a paved trail between two knobs. In the description says no dogs, don't know why. Mine went with me.

A fun and educational hike to the Church and Col. Duffield’s cabin that visitors can enter. Outstanding!

Outstanding trail to hike in the winter with nice views of the Ohio river.

Very clean and peaceful trail. Not very busy. A little elevation gain but still an easy trail.

I would describe this as an “easy” trail rather than moderate, but a good trail-run nonetheless. Sadly, we didn’t see any bison.
