The spring is beautiful! Worth the hike down and then back up again!

I love the solitude of this trail. I run it weekly.

I loved this trail. Just make sure you give yourself enough time to complete and take your time. Would like to come back again. Very beautiful and easy to find. If you don’t want to finish all the way, there is a short cut you can take to take across the path to the finish. Not sure exactly where it’s at but after the 3rd mile maybe. I took it. Lol would have liked to go all the way around if I had enough daylight.

nice little trail. my kids and dog enjoyed it.

Well marked trail with great valley views, steep drops and lovely creek access. It was a wonderful spring hike. I would not think the view would not be as great with all the leaves on the trees.

Love coming to this place! Beautiful all year round!

Great hike. Didn’t not do the full 7 because I left my cord to charge my phone but when I got back to my vehicle I seen a tower and walked in that direction and found a cave and bridge which led to the HA HA castle which was awesome and I would highly recommend it and I actually ended up doing 7 miles anyway lol

Trail heads and trail could have been better marked. The rocky awnings were pretty and overall, the trail was a fun, moderate hike.

One of my favorites at Ha Ha Tonka, for the variety --cool boulders and climbs, then rushing water when you hike down to the confluence.

I connected to this trail from the Colosseum Trail and did not do the full wooden staircase trail on this trip. I always marvel at the beautiful, clear water and the turquoise blue of the spring at its origin.

Very cool features, esp the Devil's Kitchen cave and Promenade features. I wish the blazing had been better--I wasn't sure I was going the right way when crossing the Post Office Road and moving farther from the parking lot. The trail seemed longer than the posted 1.3 miles (but maybe I was just tired since this was my last trail of the day, after 4 hours!). I cut it short and ended up retracing my steps back to the parking lot. I'll definitely return and do the full loop.

Did a light overnight trip here. Walked about 4 miles into the loop and set up a hammock camp near the bypass. Good views, well maintained trails, and enough variance to keep it interesting. Saw deer galore both at camp and while hiking. There were some coyotes in the area but they stayed clear. I'd visit again if I were in the area.

You can see the castle on the cliff from this trail. The spring water is really blue and clear. There's a cave that's difficult to get to, off the trail, but well worth it if you can make the very steep climb up and down.

Really cool short trail. Awesome rock formations, tall bluffa, and a small cave. Would definitely do it again.

Great moderate trail. It was raining and windy when we walked it, but it was still beautiful. Beware that it does get very slippery when wet. Would like to go back in the spring to see the glade flowers bloom. There is a marked shortcut for cutting it down to five miles instead of seven.
