Easy walk up to a pretty waterfall. We went off to the left to look for the mine. That made it even better for us.

Nice and mostly shaded trail around the lake. Not too crowded on weekdays.

Very nice trail. Dog friendly, bike friendly, good scenery and well maintained. Great Job Fayetteville.

So much history here! What a fantastic place! Highly recommend this place.

Sort of boring except for the part that goes up the hill and through the woods. And the parking lot is easy to miss. but it's nearby for me and can be done in an hour plus.

Had a blast on this trail, it is very diverse in the different biomes that you experience. The northern half is very beautiful running along the beach for a few miles, it also has a good amount of elevation change. The southern half is a little easier however if you go after there has been rain be careful of mile 5-4 or 4-5, depending on the direction you are going, it is extremely wet and muddy. The camps are well spaced apart and are great spots to set up for the night.

Good track to ride only during light traffic times. Sunday’s have heavy walking traffic.

A nice quick hike!

I Love this trail.It's a nice walk to get some fresh air and see nature right here in the city

A nice path that's relatively close to my house. If I have an hour to spare, this is a go-to. Paved trail, loop, and welcoming community.

Very easy and great for kids and families and fun to swim in! Bring some shoes with traction and clothes you don’t mind getting wet in! Young’s e to take a dip!

It's nice. Went with the dogs. Unfortunately the whole trail isn't open to dogs.

The views are absolutely beautiful. Very peaceful hike. Did not find it to be too challenging but just the right amount of a work out. Well worth the visit even if you don't do the whole trail.

on the water and with some forest/ trees but completely paved and over built.

Love to walk this trail along with fan branch to get about 5 miles. It is beautiful and not heavily populated. It is great to do with kids as there are 2 parks of off fan branch trail so the kids can play.

These are very nice falls! I would recommend going right after a good rain to watch them roar. The steps down may be slippery. Please keep children off the rocks and away from the water when it is roaring from the rain!

Bird Sanctuary located on Merrimon Rd. on the south end of Beaver Lake. easy trail, great for bird viewing as well as soulful reflection. Beautiful all four seasons.

A beautiful waterfall that is a must see if driving through Pisgah. The falls are easily viewable from the road, but you can also walk down a few sets of stairs to the river at the base of the falls.

It’s just too cool to wander this place.

We did this Hike last June and loved it- beautiful area outside of Fayetteville NC

Clingman's dome winter hike has been a long awaited bucket list hike and it was certainly a challenge. The trail resembled a frozen creek bed. Ice was extensive and thick through nearly every step. I brought poles but did not bring crampons. The path gives way to the ridge line and the inclines are steep and are all the more slow and treacherous covered in ice. There are no views on the AT until you reach the dome which was surprising since the bare trees didn't reveal more of the surrounding area. However, having the dome all to myself made it completely worth the trouble. I shouted into the wind in triumph on the highest point in the park with blissful solitude. Taking Dome Rd back to NFG due to time constraints, I was treated to more views of the North Carolina mountains.

If you are interested in this unique winter hike poles and crampons are highly recommended. Be sure to call park services for information regarding road closures. There was no information on the website that NFG rd was closed and fortunately opened late at 11:00am. This is a long hike and daylight was a concern because of the late start.

Our troop did the entire 22 mile trail on Jan 13-14. We camped halfway along the trail around Dogwood Shelter as the shelter was occupied. The first half of the trail was very challenging to stay dry as there was a lot of water from the recent snow and rain prior to our arrival. Bridged walkways were very slick which provided a balancing challenge with a 45lb pack. One part of the trail was completely flooded and it was difficult to get around without your shoes getting wet. The second half was worse and it got to a point where we just gave up trying to stay dry and just trudge through the water to keep our pace. All in all it is a nice trail to hike if it’s a drought during the winter. I would like to come back when it’s not so water logged.

First time being there it was awesome! Didn’t know you had to pay to walk it though.

Not a hike, pull off with a few steps to the base of the falls. Still, sooo worth the stop!

Gorgeous water fall. The hike down to the river was steep and switch back and forth but worth the view. There is a nice bridge at the bottom crossing the river. Great place for photos. If you keep going alittle further you will come another bridge going over Corbin’s creek. Nice water fall to see there. If you keeping down the trail about 2-3 miles you will come to bad creek. From there you can also hike to the lower falls.
Very nice trail. Just remember you have to hike back a up the steep hill you started with. Nice day hike one or our favorite hikes.
