My group of lady friends loved this trail! Beautiful forest views, lovely rock bridge with pool of water. Feels almost like a fairy tale walking through this landscape. Careful towards the end to not go off trail. We did and it got kinda rough and had to turn around. Look for your markers. I would do it again and I highly recommend.

Short, easy, and fun hike. The best view is climbing on top! It was amazing!

Interesting rock structures. It is a really short easy hike. The rock structures at the end are well worth the short amount of time it takes to hike to them.

We camped at Whittleton Campground so this was our first hike of the weekend. It was REALLY muddy! But nice! We had hiked to the arch from HWY 15 but never in this way. The sign to the Arch was little hidden and we actually hiked past but quickly got back on track. The Arch is gorgeous and a great place to take a break and explore.

I have done this trail at least a dozen times with elderly, obese, young children and first timers. It is the best in fall when the wind is up, as it really does whistle. It is worth going a bit past the small arch and climbing up the rock ledges to see the view from up there. Be very careful doing this.

A great trail for first timers, older folks, children and people tend who like interesting rock structures.

We did this trail with our children aged 3, 6 and 9. They did great and loved it. The waterfall is gorgeous and the splash pool and creek were very to nice to wade in. Gorgeous foliage.

It’s a 1.5 mile loop. Very family friendly. It’s pretty easy; I’m out of shape, but I survived well and would do it again. We did find that if you enter the trail and come back out from the entrances by the bathrooms, it is easier. The other entrance to the trail has a lot of steps. We started there, and looked around and did fine. But probably would have avoided the steps because of my youngest son, had we known. We had a 3 and a 4.5 year old with us, and they did amazing. Perfect kid friendly hike! All in all, great trail and beautiful scenery!

Great, short hike! Very cool to be able to stand on top of the arch and then see it from below. Loop trail with stairs. Fine for little ones if you hold their hand.

Great warm up trail with some beautiful picture locations!

If you go past the windows to the stacked rocks, (More impressive than the picture) don’t go further unless you have a backcountry camping permit. But, it’s worth going to this point.

Trail was easy to follow and very scenic. GO EARLY to beat the crowd. The rock bridge and creation falls are beautiful!

fun trail. watch the kids on the top because their aren't ant hand rails. good condition too.

short and easy, good for kids too.

Nice trail! Not too difficult even with toddlers. Great scenery. Mid on trail is possibility so wear good shoes.

Great loop with a beautiful natural bridge. Path is paved and loops. More like a roadside attraction than a trail but still a very pleasant walk to take after a long day of hiking.

I highly recommend this trail. It's a nice trail for an afternoon hike after a long day at work! The falls are gorgeous!

Lovely trail with a little bit of everything - beautiful subtropical, mountainside foliage, cardio elevation, rock walls, a cave, an arch, a river, a creek, and a the crown jewel, a waterfall. If you are a photog and want to get pics, don’t come on a weekend. My first visit was on a warm, Sunday, Spring afternoon and it was like Disneyland. If you prefer solitude or want to get pictures, then weekdays, early are good for you. Falls look great after some rain, and the splash pool is a great place to cool off. Nice picnic area and family friendly. My only complaint is the limited parking.

Nice hike with waterfall and creek that the dogs loved.

Extremely easy short trail, great for when you’re short on time. You get to pass through the arches at the end. Highly recommend doing it at least once.

Really cool rock formations

Nice quick hike. Easy to find. I really don’t get the asphalt paving. Just let people walk on earth.

Easy hike. Make sure to dip your toes in the falls.

Beautiful little hike (especially the arch!). Took our dog and he handled it just fine as well.

Great little hike. Family friendly.
Also great views.

Sky Bridge is a great family hike. There are a couple of drop offs, so be mindful.

Great evening loop very easy to jog or hike

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!!

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!

Very pretty rock formations. Trails were nice but went after it rained. Pretty muddy
