Awesome trail! It was great terrain and the view was beautiful! The sign recommends for hikers to do the 2 mile loop. However, we did the 6 mile and enjoyed it very much! Nice to hike because of the variations of trails, we didn’t run into anyone until the end. Come prepared with good shoes, water and plenty of bug spray!

Was expecting to see more of the marsh/seashore. The kids did enjoy seeing the wildlife.

Nice trail. Taking the advice of other reviews, I started at the bottom and hiked up to the lookout instead of driving up to the trail head. Not having exercised in a good while it was more moderate than easy but still doable.

great little nature walk short and easy enough for kids the route I took put me around 3 miles the ccc lookout spur was hard to follow after the first sign describing the ruins so I would turn around there on future walks

Over the past two weeks I've started a hike from the north and also from the south. The trail is overgrown, in some places the grass is above the knee and it is hard to see what is around your feet. Our hike from the south ended about 0.5 miles in when my dog was bit by a copper head he/I just couldn't see because of the overgrowth. The area is otherwise beautiful, but the trail is just too overgrown for me to hike again in the summer which is a shame. If you do go, heavy pants/boots/snake gaiters are recommended.

Remote beautiful trail system. You can bike it year round due to the Gulf Coast weather. Good up and downs with tight turns. Terrain differs as you scale thru different ecosystems, but just be careful in the more warmer months for snakes, spiders, and biting flies.

Love to take my dog out here and have a nice picnic by the waterfalls. I’ve done this trail several times and it’s always fun but I would definitely give it more than a “moderate” rating. Some of the trails are very tough/steep. Some waterfalls you will have to climb over many large rocks to get to. I would not recommend this for children if you are trying to do the entire path. But this is the best spot I’ve visited thus far that’s close to Baton Rouge

Great place to camp, swim, and hike. A few snakes, chiggers and ticks but mostly just beautiful scenery

Always been the best trail to go to in Louisiana. Really wish there were trials as good as this one closer to BR. If you go before summer hits, the waterfalls should have water. If you go in the late summer a lot of them dry up. The trail markers can be hard to find sometimes...typically if you can’t find one that means you went the wrong way haha. Never had problems with wildlife (spiders, snakes) here. My dog loved it

I have a special place in my heart for Dunn's Falls since it is located just a few miles from where I grew up. This park is a wonderful place for family and friends to have a picnic after a short hike to the waterfall and Chunky River. There are also primitive campsites available, and the old water mill can be toured. However, due to lack of funding, the park is only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day for the summer months. Like all Mississippi Pat Harrison water parks, Dunn's Falls is pet friendly. Just make sure you pick up after your dog and have them on a leash or harness because the river currents can be swift and strong. Enjoy a little piece of history!

Great hike for a beginner. It is important to mind the trail markings and if you arent careful you can get off the trail without a clear way to get back. Best bet is to give yourself plenty of daylight to get back just in case. The trail is marked with green tree markers and in a couple spots have arrows to help...pay attention to them. You can see the lake for 75% of the hike, but it's the other 25% you have to be careful.

This is a nice short point to point trail through the quiet Bailey Woods right in the middle of town.

We drove to walk these trails and had a blast. well maintained and clear path markers. We enjoyed the fact that we could take our dogs on a leash. Beautiful scenery.

Started on edge of Hattiesburg and hiked west several friendly folks on trail I stopped and ate at a restaurant in one of the small towns I have hiked and road many trails across several states and I really like this one. It’s easy so just add on the miles if you like a challenge. Go in the late spring and you can travel through the middle of pretty corn fields. Also lots of pretty long leaf pines. There is also a company that you can pay for a ride from one side to other to get vehicle if need be.

You can choose a 1, 2, 3, or 5 mike hike by following the colored trail markers. On the 2 mile hike i saw a snake, a raccoon, a large frog, many butterflies and birds, and plenty of mosquitoes. Lovely trail, bring bug spray.

Boy Scout hike to Aiery lake!

Full of huge spiders, butterflies, lizards and even armadillos. Gorgeous trail! Bring plenty of water.

Beautiful and well-maintained. Will definitely return, but with a couple of garbage bags! Clearly floods on occasion and there’s a variety of lake trash washed up in places. What a beautiful resource in hernando!

Great trail, some trees were down but other than that, no complaints. Easy to follow as it’s marked well.

Short, sweet, and dirty. Lots of litter!

Very beautiful trail with some nice rock formations and next to the water.

Nice trail through the wilderness of the park.

Trails are not very clearly marked, didn't mean to do this trail in fact, but it turned out to be a great trail. Very clean, also super cool to be able to get to the natural spring. Even got to fill up a bottle.

Great trail want to do it again in fall
