Easy to follow trails, nice hike to the waterfalls. Worth the trip.

It's a good hike but sometimes the trail can be really overgrown so keep that in mind before you go. I've actually lost the trail before when going closer to the river. But it's a pretty area and doesn't get that crowded.

Such a great hiking park within Fayette county. So many trails to choose from great for all skill levels and it's so pretty and peaceful. I'm sad it has regular business hours so the trails can get crowded pretty quickly but if you go early it's fine. I've seen a lot of deer on the trail earlier in the morning.

The whole trail is actually a lot longer, I think about 11 miles. Not shaded and not very scenic but a good paved trail if you need to bike or run longer.

Nice scenic paved path.

I liked it. I will be back

Trail was steep walking stick was beneficial on this trail. Lots of tree roots that could trip u up. The trail itself is beautiful and the waterfall was nice to cool down under. Benches were a welcome sight too.

Great views, would be great for sunsets since it is such a short trail. I bring all friends and family visiting to this trail because it is good for even novices. Busy though, saw about 6 people on a Thursday morning. . .

Really great trail! We did majority Otter Creek Trail (OCT) and cut back on the Red Cedar Trail (RCT). $3/person. They gave us a really good trail map at the entrance, and I thought all the trails were marked pretty well. First half of the hike was easy, second half moderate. Walked through LOTS of spider webs, which was a little annoying. You are never too far from roads/camping. Nice views. We did 3.84 miles in all, took almost 2 hours. Dogs loved it. A few horses on the RCT trail, so if you're just hiking, it's probably best to stay on the No Horses trails to avoid mud and poop.

Love this park because it is never busy! The start/end is a bit steep, but you can drive down to the parking lot if that's an issue for you. Most people have their (well-behaved) dogs off leash.

Nicely maintained, beautiful scenery, easy walk. My dogs love it.

The trail head is located at the welcoming center. Saw lots of animals hanging around. Good short hike if you want to stretch your legs.

I like that this trail is not heavily trafficked and that it's a great workout. I usually only see deer and no people.
