A beautiful hike with gorgeous rock faces. The closer you get to the falls, the less apparent the trail becomes. Just follow the creek, the reward is worth it.

Good trails. Lots of roots. Park at the fountain.

A super quick hike to the viewpoint, terrific view of the area. Go at night to get a wondrous view of the clean night sky, bring a flashlight and pay attention on the trail though.

My favorite trail. Hiked about a dozen times, each as rewarding as the last. The views are absolutely tremendous for how little activity it takes to get there. Simply wonderful

There are many sections that are truly beautiful and tranquil, deer grazing right up next to the trails and many more spotted through the trees. Lots a nice wildlife spotted on the way to the Sal Hollow campsite and many more on the way back. There are down sides however, the horses have completed destroyed the trail in many sections. At least a solid mile of it is utterly unusable unless you were walking on the sloped sides of the trail due to the horses and mud buildup. Make sure you bring plenty of water with you, and if camping overnight be prepared for the wildlife. The campsite sits about a 1/4 mile away from the creek bed and there were many many coyotes howling nearby and some other unidentified very large animal grunting not too far away.

Love the trail. Something about this trail makes it so peaceful.

first few miles was good but it got hard with big rocks steep hills and some places I had to almost just carry my bike several down trees and creek crossings , some great rock formations along the way trail marked pretty good but one place after you get to a gravel area I lost it but if you stay to the right going from the church direction you be good got to the end and rode the road back to the church took 2 hours 45 min on trail and 57 min back on road.

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

I use this trail to train for Ultras. The western side has several steep hills with decent views. The eastern half is an easy trail with no challenging hills. Expect to run into bikers.

Gorgeous hike will plenty of ridge views and river crossings. It’s a challenging one though. Quite a few climbs and descents. It’s easy to lose the trail in a few areas. I hope to do it again when I’m in better shape. :)

Awesome change in elevation, well maintained trails. Short but strenuous

Trail is well marked and the staff at the welcome center is very nice and helpful. I only completed a small loop on the south end today but, plan on coming back very soon to see the rest of the trail and connecting spurs.
Highly recommend this area for new hikers like myself.

Nice and easy. Bit muddy after the rain but that’s to be expected. Lake views.

Easy trail to hike, interesting geology. Very pretty.

Beautiful hiking trail with lots of rock cliffs, waterfalls as well as different birds to watch. I recommend this trail :)

Nice trail for walking. Steep in places. Rather long and winding. Map is hard to follow.

Lovely scenery. Easy walking trail. My dog loved it.

Very nice, relatively easy, quick hike that can be done in about 30 minutes. It is a relaxing hike with a wide path and cool surrounding, which include benches if you just want sit and enjoy the woods. Dog friendly (on leash) and there are places that you can take off path to get to picnic areas near the creek. I do this hike upwards of 2-3 times a week. Recommend to beginners or people that just want to be outside a little bit.

Some moderate to steep climbs. A few very muddy spots. Overall was very peaceful, with some great views of Tom Wallace Lake. Enjoyed this trail and will Hike/Run on it again.

Great trail if your just getting into hiking or you want to walk your dog. It’s beautiful.

I loved it! Went with family on this one. This was my third hike with my son. We were exhausted at the end but it was beautiful. A LOT of inclines and declines throughout. It’s tough but beautiful!

Great variety of wildflowers

Possibly my favorite hike we did here. If you go past the arch on the left there is a place where the rock drops off and the view is spectacular! We were amazed! Watch your dogs and kids. Highly recommend this trail!!

View from the lookout is top notch for sure!

Absolutely breathtaking hike. The views are amazing and walking onto the sky bridge is an amazing experience. The day we went had 25-30mph gusts of wind so it was unnerving for sure. If you are afraid of heights it’s a great hike to conquer that! Highly recommend!

challenging, beautiful, peaceful
