Super Trail -
Easy on the body, might even recommend it for almost anyone!

The area is quiet, and the cover is thick for the most part, and we stayed cool and comfortable!

You'll love it

Nice trail. Not too strenuous. Tracked it at 6 miles total. There were plenty of children doing this trail with no problem. There are places where I would not have a dog with no leash. The views at the end are well worth the trip.

I was speechless!
For years I thought this was a "bike only" trail!
Turns out to be one of the very best hiking trails in the area! We started out just about 1pm, and the weather was perfect!
The terrain isn't too demanding. If you are a comfortable 10mile hiker - this trail is perfect...

We wrapped up the trail(s) at just under 10 miles, and it felt good.

The Lake Loop is nice, but the Laurel Loop is so much more!

Our first hike on this trail. The waterfall is beautiful and worth the hike.

I love these trails. Been on the trails out here since the late 90s, they have grown and made constant improvements over the years. Nothing is overly technical or difficult throughout, yet a good challenge if you push your speed. For eastern NC, and as close as the trails are to Greenville, I consider myself lucky.

Big thanks to the folks on the trail management squad from ECVELO, BicyclePost, and all others who have dedicated their time/resources. In the near future, I will be volunteering to assist with trail maintenance.

Beautiful park but this trail is not “hard” difficulty level. The path is a very level and wide sand and grave path like a road; although there is a lot of elevation to traverse it does not require much thought or effort and feels rather domesticated.

We took the left fork to start the loop and really the view walking up the valley paralleling the stream...

Nice hike for everyone! Several well-marked trails with great views.

it's a nice place but the $6 parking fee is ridiculous.

When last I did it it was from spindale to the lumber mill in Gilkey, so about what this shows. very fun trail for biking. Pretty good amount of traffic but nice serene environment in some points and a small town historic feel through others. It's a good walk if you're looking for a walking trail, but if you want real hiking you might be a bit bored

Great trail to run, very technical so be ready for a challenge. Just make sure to run/hike the opposite direction of the bikers and you shouldn't have any issue seeing each other. Taking all of the black diamond bike routes should put out a distance just over 4 miles.

My mom (51) and I (24) hiked to the falls on March 4th and it was lovely. The hike is not super forested the entire way, but making it to the falls is worth it! There are tables near the falls to picnic if you’d like. There was a decent elevation gain but nothing my mom and I couldn’t handle. This trail would be perfect for mountain biking. This hike is easy to moderate (moderate only when gaining elevation). There are two lakes along the loop you can enjoy as well.

Beautiful! Easy trail a bit harder for younger kids but works out because at the end there is a place to jump into the river. If you are looking for some fitness and fun for the summer time this is perfect and if you are just looking to get some good cardio in or nature appreciation then this is perfect.

Glorious! We had the entire circuit to ourselves and only saw the occasional fisherman. We walked several of the loops.

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

fairly easy trail with not much elevation. lots of mountain bikes but of course it is built for that too. definitely see Grassy Creek Falls. do the loop for the best hike

Would not recommend at all. it took me 30 minutes to find the trailhead. probably the worst trail ive ever hiked. There was probably 10 trails plus this one all in the same area. You will get lost a lot. Barely any markings.

Did part of it years ago. Can’t wait to do again

Did it a few years ago. Loved it

love love love this whole area for hiking

Easy trail and with a sweet little falls that empties into a pool of water before it rushes out into a rather loud fast flowing river.

Ended up doing this trail by accident... but so happy we did! We went around to Little Green summit first and then down to the falls. The trail was definitely easy going for the first 3+ miles. A nice/steep climb to the top and then some AMAZING views. Got a little turned around on the summit thanks to some careless wandering but never got too far off path. The entire 4 hours we were in the area we only saw 4 other groups of people which made the experience even more perfect. Can't wait to come back for a weekend of camping/hiking.

Nice trail but needs more blazes.

Very nice trail's! They are marked well also. definitely gonna make a trip back to ride the rest. I just hit the main loop one morning.

Absolutely breath taking! Very easy and short hike to get to the falls. You can sit on the rocks at the second level and enjoy the view. Would highly recommend!

This hike was easy for the most part. There were areas that you had a little climb if you wanted to go to the top of the lager fall. There was some really pretty creek areas however alot of the trees were down and did blocked lots of the other falls. I did walk/climb around amd over a lot of the trees to get a better view of a couple of falls but you still are not able to see them well. The large fall is really pretty and worth seeing it.

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.

Great trail and view!

Love this trail!!! You forget you are in eastern North Carolina because it is so hilly! Make sure you have a good charge on your phone and know how to use Maps… It’s a little easy to get turned around

I gave this 3 stars because of the careless dog owners! And the lack of posted leash laws! We have pets and always keep them on a leash! Some people seem to think they are above the rules because it’s a national forest! The rules are posted but in only one place! Not every dog likes every human or other dogs! Two large dogs run up on my little girls with no owner in sight! Not a pretty site! This is really crazy! They could have hurt my dogs or one of us! People need to get with the program or stay home! Forestry people in N.C., you need to enforce your leash laws! Graveyard Feilds has always been one of my favorite places! As of now we will not be returning due to the lack of the lash laws! Some human or their pet is going to end up getting hurt! Remember your dogs aren’t the only pets out there!!! I’m done!
