Great paved trail. We had the little niece and nephews with us and they could easily walk it with us.

Beautiful run/hike!! I enjoyed every minute of it. I recommend starting the trail from the right entrance (not the bridge); that way you get to do the hike and experience the beautiful views towards the end!

Beautiful scenery

This trail has everything. A view of the spring with its clear turquoise water. Then a steep climb through woods to fire tower. Then great views of cliffs and benches. Then a bit along the river. It really is a trail that covers everyone

There was a prescribed burn in progress, so we had to modify our planned route. Half the loop is flat, in the bottoms below the bluff. The other half is on the bluff, up and down from one beautiful overlook to another. Lots of dogs and people. Beautiful trail for so close in to the city.

Nice paved trail along Table Rock Lake.

As of 12/18/17 trail is closed for maintenance.

Great walking path. do wish that there are Trail markers so you know how far you've gone.

I started at the trail to the dam, ended up at a fork to where you could go see the dam or take the turkey creek trail. I went towards the dam and then went down turkey creek a little ways but couldn’t find where you cross the river so I turned around. It is a little rugged but my dog and I made it just fine. I would like to go back and try and find out where the crossing is.

I have been here twice. I can not get enough of this beauty.

pretty easy hike to the natural bridge from the parking lot. Wear waterproof shoes, you will get wet. I was very aggravated by the trash in the cave. why do people do that. There is bats in the cave, I hope the trash does not disturb them

Fast, flat, and wide asphalt path that follows the edge of the lake under the canopy of shady trees. Plenty of shoot offs that lead to the lake to dip your feet or paws into afterward.

For as short as this trail is, it's packed with awesomeness. The area itself is amazing. I could sit and look at the spring all day. Great place for family pictures. So clean!

Simply put... beautiful place!

After we made it a little ways past the tracks some lunatic on an ATV came chasing after us we had to run across a creek. The signs specifically say there are no off road vehicles allowed back there and there must be a nutcase hiding out back there now or something, very scary experience. The trailer park is private property, so the best point to park would be in the subdivision next to it. I am hoping something is done about the guy staying back there though, until then I will not go back.

Beautiful trail! Plenty of camping opportunities. My gps clocked a little over 12 miles and about 1500 ft elevation .

Good brisk stretch your legs walk !

We didn't get far because you literally have to wade through the river to begin the trail. However, I did it . It was only knee deep and not slick - just be ready to take off your shoes and wade across. So, we spent the day climbing around the beautiful waterfall and up the mountain beside it. We were able to see quite the view just there! It was so worth it!

During good weather it can be rather congested with people, but great views.

Nice views as the trail stays alongside the lake.

Great paved trail. Took my five month old son and his stroller through the whole thing. The lake view is amazing too. Very easy!

We trekked this one today, the bottom running along the river was quite muddy and you found yourself doing the Fred Flintstone trying to maintain balance in several spots. Once you cross under the RR tracks and start your ascension on the staircase you find very spectacular views from the cliffs edge. Some of the trail crosses the lonewolf and white trails. Some areas rugged others moderate over all a nice trek. Only down fall was it was so busy you couldn’t find parking in some areas. You also literally had to give way to traffic in some areas on the trail due to hikers.

Nice hike with a variety of terrian. Several camping sites along the trail. Trails are marked well enough that you shouldn't find yourself backtracking or scratching your head on which way to go. I was able to find ways to cross all the creeks (staying dry) after a couple days of good rainfall but a week of heavy rain might prove otherwise.

Nice hills- loops around the water nicely

First time at this park and on this trail. I was there on a mild winter day, but the trail was so muddy that it was more strenuous than marked. It felt much longer than the 3.5 miles, but I did it in less than 2 hours.
There are very few blazes on this trail, but honestly, you can't get lost b/c you are following the exact perimeter of the lake. You see the water the entire time. I hiked it counter-clockwise, and as I entered the wooded trail after crossing the grassy levee, there was a large fallen tree exactly on the start of the trail, and that tree connected to a beaver dam. With the mud, it was difficult to even see the start of the trail and to access it. I hope they can clear that obstacle soon...I think it would be difficult for very young children or less-mobile hikers to do this trail.

A little something for everyone; Nature walk/ run/ hike/explore..

Great winter hike.

I love this area. I grew up here. This is where I developed my love of hiking.

Awesome trail that starts with a steep climb and then levels off for a great view of the river. Doubles back after descending a huge set of stairs. Just took the hike during wet weather/snow and even the river bottoms were solid enough to walk without too much mud.
