A really cool and easy trail with lots to see. The trail did abruptly stop at one point and there were a bunch of fallen trees. We walked through some thick brush and found our way around which led us to a field of wildflowers. Totally worth getting off the beaten path.

My favorite place in Johnson Co.

Awesome view!

Amazing view

8am hike with the wife. Great to get away from everything.

Easy access to lake.

Another hidden swim hole.

Very nice and hidden jewel in county with beautiful Overlooks.

Great Secluded Spot For An Out-Country Camping Trip. Fire Pit Area & Fishing/Swimming Area.
My daughter and husband have been wanting to go camping for a while. I think I've found the spot!

Great Spot! Fishing, Swimming & Cliff Jumping!

Prefect Area For Swimming!

Beautiful place where swimming & fishing co-exist. Fishing in the left! Swimming in the right!


Yes Rose Meek it is at the end of Blanton Branch Road. There are some turns off the road near the end to a cemetery, but if you just stay straight you will drive straight into the parking area.

Andrea - how do you get to the trail head? Is it on Blanton Branch Road?

Wonder trail, plenty of parking, beautiful scenic views of the lake, rock cliffs, water fall and a creek. Easy to navigate. A couple small steep segments, but overall a very easy going trail.
