The trail was extremely muddy today . The suck your shoes off type of mud. Otherwise very nice day.

Great trail-kid friendly. We were the only ones on the trail and enjoyed walking along the creek and river, then exploring the bath houses and grand staircase (make sure to go to the top for a view). Needs a bit of cleanup for trash closer down to the waterline.

Very nice all paved trail. Parking is close to playground and trail access. I wish it was longer but still very nice walk. If I come back again I will plan to do the loop at least twice.

Today was a super nice day! The trails had a decent amount of people including kids and animals, but that was okay with me.

It’s the perfect place to go with your family. It’s safe and co clean. You can get your coffee or ice cream then you can stop by there to spend valuable time. It’s also amazing place to walk/hiking/jogging and so on.

I took my dog with me who was very startled by sounds that I believe may have been gun shots- I’m assuming there’s a range nearby. This may not be a good fit for dogs with anxiety. Scenic and challenging! But currently very muddy

We did a great morning hike with the dogs today. The trail was rather icy, but we survived, and we will definitely do it again. Beware of cardiac hill. It is definitely a heart pumper.

Simple paved walking trail around a park with some workout stations along the way.

A little icy and muddy today but not terrible. Nice hike overall.

Didn't finish because the little dog got tired. had to cut through. But as always beautiful trail

Beautiful trail ! A little wet but doable with appropriate shoes.

paved trail. can get crowded at times. they are making it longer though. I ran the part from Orlando's to where it ended (at the recycling plant).

not a bad trail. some muddy parts. some hills. but it is paved.

there are 2 trails at Cliff Cave, I think this is the newer one? which isn't flooded. it is a great trail. there are hills, but it is paved and when I ran it in December 2019 I saw maybe 10-12 deer so close!! it is a new, beautiful trail. there is an overlook of the river you can stop at over the bluffs. one of my favorite trails!!

when not flooded this is a great flat, looped paved, mostly shady trail. boring views. went in December 2019 and still closed though.

flat, mostly shaded. paved but forks off into unpaved if you want. quiet. nice views of the river.

Still pretty muddy, but a favorite trail of mine.

A herd of deer, gaggles of geese, 3 eagles, 2 hornet nests, & 1 train.

One of our favorite local hikes. We frequent this trail because our kids loves the little “landmarks” along the way. This trail makes it easy to encourage kids to hike.

Well you know, the average for such a beautiful day, over packed with people but hey it's 57 degrees on New Year's Day! A little muddy here and there but nothing terrible whatsoever. Ended up completing the Lone Wolf after finishing this one. Grotpeter is a perfect Trail for any hiker but definitely more on the easy, outside of one good-sized hill. Only slightly rocky, you could easily hike this in regular old sneaks if you wanted to. Combine Grotpeter and Lone Wolf to put the hike closer to 6 miles and over 500 feet of elevation gain. HH
