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

amazing

Nice trail. Mostly shaded, lots of elevation changes, plus nice views.

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.

Very hot and some challenging ascents so bring plenty of water

Nice Kentucky hike

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.

I enjoy this trail very much. i have hiked there and camped there. great overlooks

Go to the right when you start the trail. Better views right away.

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.

Did the original trail this past Saturday. Good trail. Not very long and good elevation gain. Trail was very busy with hikers because of the great weather.

Hiked this past Saturday morning. Great hike. Was able to see more this time. Hiked in January 2016 and the trail was fog covered the entire time.

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.

Great trip to a special place on the lake. allow yourself 2-2.5 hours round trip. Absolutely stunning scenery along the way and several water features as well.

Very nice trail. Make sure to do the white trails as well.

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.

It was a good hike, not great. We did the entire red course and it was 4 Miles as opposed to the 5.5 listed on this app. We did spur off onto the white trail at times and if we had not, we’d have missed the waterfall (which was more like a water/rock feature with a small pool at the bottom). Easy access to cool off or take your shoes off to dip your feet! The over look was another highlight of the hike. Not too muddy, but there were spots that were along the route. I’d consider this a great place to hike with kids/family as you can take the blue or green trails back to the Nature Center at many points and shorten the length of this hike, which is the only thing I’d say might be difficult for beginners. The signage and available maps were wonderful! One of the best marked hikes we’ve been on. The drive back into Ravens Run was beautiful on our July morning!

Great little hike with our puppy. He loved splashing around in the shallow pool at the base of the falls.

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