Mountain bikingGreat!

Great paved trail from Garrett Road Park to Woodcroft Parkway to the Third Fork Creek Greenway and Southern Boundaries Park. Easy flat trail with hills as you approach either end. Only distraction was crossing the road to the Woodcroft Parkway. We saw three deer on the trail. Really nice short ride in southern Durham.

Not well marked, trail description is not accurate. Schoolhouse falls were pretty.

Good trip with wide area so one can socially distance. Lovely day with great views on the hike. Also gentle enough for little ones. Only drawback was that more than 50% of people we saw had NO masks.

Poor signage. Downed trees; trail in poor repair. The only positive is you get some exercise walking it. Not much to see. In a word, DON’T!

Good for a cardio hike. Popular with trail runners and mountain bikers. Nice and steady climb, nothing much to see. Good if you just need to get outside and exercise. Parking a breeze.

HikingGreat!

This is a 4.2 hike if you follow the trail as outlined here. I went up the Vertical Mile Challenge (VMC). This is the hard part, and it is not shaded. Walking up a steep rock surface; it is challenging and very doable. Hot though because of lack of any shade. This part is marked by red cones on the rock and signs on the trees. This takes you to the loop, about 2.5 miles with great views. Coming back, I took the Prison Camp trail with lots of switchbacks to the parking lot. It took me 80 minutes up, 40 min down. Trails are well kept and well marked. Good size parking lot with clean bathrooms.

this trail was really muddy and at some points ankle deep. on top of that the trail was overgrown on most of the trail. the falls were lovely and the trail was moderate.

really muddy in spots and a couple areas where there was retaining water. the falls were beautiful and so was the views. there is a section looking out to the mountains wand trail was hard to find even with tags in the tree. had to backtrack to find the trail.

Very steep going up, but the clearing makes it worth it! COWS!! We took the gravel road down. I would def recommend that way down! We got a total of 2.3 miles. App said 17 floors up. Sounds about right.

Trail needs maintenance we were unable to walk about the loop at the end because it was so overgrown... but otherwise a great little hike

I always enjoy hiking and I thought they were some nice aspects to this trail but it was rather disappointing. I wouldn’t recommend going in the middle of the summer because the trail tends to get very muddy, and it’s not very scenic. There are plenty of planks to help you cross some of the deeper areas but be prepared to hit lots of slick muddy spots. The upper Falls is quite a trek for as short as it is and the payoff isn’t reate a tthat great. The falls themselves are a little bit underwhelming. It is pretty and fun to look at but you can get a lot better pay off on the Blue Ridge Parkway for a lot less effort. I took the loop back down an ended up at the lower Falls which is the best part. The trail is poorly marked in spots and there are multiple places to go that are actually dead ends so it’s best to download a map or to at least get a close look when you’re at lower elevation and actually have a signal. This place gets extremely crowded even during the weekdays so arrive early or get there late. All in all, it’s about 4 miles to do the loop and both falls and I would rate it is easy to moderate. The only reason that it’s moderate when I took it is because it was so muddy and hard to find the trails. This is best done in the fall and it is rather easy if the trail is dry.

Very easy trail. My only complaint is you can hear the road traffic almost the whole time.

I might be confused we followed white round blazes from the folk art center. At about the 3 mile point, there was a tree with a red square blaze and the white round one. We took a short side trail to the left and found ourselves at a rocky overlook. It was moderately challenging, maybe more so since we’re a little past 65. Lots of road noise and busy trail on an August Saturday. No wildlife evident but lots of different colored mushrooms. A bit muddy but quite manageable. Pretty much uphill all the way out and downhill on the way back. Temperature was in the high 70’s. I would have wished for 10 degrees less.

Great hidden gem. The winding, mini-canyon of the creek is a highlight. Easy trail, minus some sketchy trail markings on the Reedy Creek Trail- but I personally found that fun.

The trail was pretty tight most all of the way. I am thankful for the off trail notifications because there are several side trails that can lead you astray.

Too much gravel road and not enough shady beautiful piney woods trail. They should create more woodsy trails off the gravel roads.
