One of my favorite hikes

best views of the boston skyline at the top of north drumlin! great little hike. love the harbor islands so much!

A nice easy day hike around a pretty lake. Some muddy/wet spots. A few spots on the trail have benches where one can stop and enjoy a nice view of the lake. Keep an eye out for snakes,and mountain bikes on the trail. I wasn’t intentionally putting mountain bikes and snakes in the same category, lol. Have fun,hike more and worry less.

This park and especially the trails,is a hidden gem! I’ve been day hiking at Fort Pillow for many years. Trails marked well but make sure you check in at the ranger office in the museum and get the paper map as trees fall across the trails and might leave you wondering which way to go. This park is a creepy place and can offer strange occurrences from time to time. I have talked to other hikers over the years who felt they were followed or unwanted by the “dead” who fell at the battle of this fort. Just google Fort Pillow Ghosts and you’ll see what I mean. Moderate hills, hiking shoes best and a pair of hiking poles. Enjoy!

Nice little hike. Did it with a 4 and 7 year old and had a great time for being close to home.

Awesome property and super awesome history. Love this place, will be back next time I'm down. It took awhile to find the falls, I guess we were a bit sleepy or something as they can almost be seen from the main entrance. Lots of rocks and roots so keep your toes up! I stubbed a toe and almost crashed. This is a must hike or trail run for everyone in Atlanta. Come on, get out there, do it!

Great relaxing kayaking. Water is pristine. Saw several manatees.

Fantastic views. Very heavily trafficked, but to be expected for the area.

Good hike that leads to a small waterfall, but a little crowded. Still worth the experience.

(1) you only hear traffic if you don’t go in far
(2) this is more of a moderate than easy hike
(3) always have to watch where you are stepping
(4) great for dogs
(5) during the week you can walk the trail without running into anybody else

Enjoyable on a beautiful day! Definitely worth checking out for yourself.

As another reviewer noted only the first 3 miles of this are on the river. The remaining 6 miles are on dirt roads, gravel roads and bush hogged clear cuts. Unless you just have to complete the trail, do an out and back turning around at about 3 miles under the beautiful junipers.

The hike itself isn't noteworthy, short and generally lacking views. But the areas of the trail that weave past Burney Falls are wonderful. If you're looking for a true "hike," this probably isn't a great trail for you. But if you want an easy stroll around the perimeter of the waterfall, this is an easy way to stretch the legs. (Hiked in September 2017)

had a great time with my lady on the trail definitely will go back!

If you follow all the outer trails, this is an almost exactly 30 minute hike/walk. Wonderful area, lots of areas to bring kids (walking or just play). Currently the "beach" area is being rebuilt. The White Lower Yellow to Upper Yellow connector is a solid aerobic workout (short but nice). Absolutely a great trail for all ages.

Breathtaking !!! My fave place soo far.

Hiked almost 2miles of this trail on 4/17/18. Beautiful trail! Great views (and spots for pictures)! Easy to find with the directions provided. It really is like being on another planet - walking on all the lava rocks! Make sure to wear proper footwear; there can be sharp rocks at times. Take extra water and sunscreen (even if there are a few clouds out, the sun WILL burn you!)

I wish we would’ve had more time to finish the hike. I will definitely return to finish!

Fairly flat. Probably half of the trail is wooded, but some nice lake views are here too. Pretty busy carriage road!

DONT TAKE IOWA HILL RD FROM COLFAX TO GET THERE!!!
Great loop, but the back side of the trail from the dam to the day use area has alot of fallen trees and debris on alot of the trail. about 1/4 mile in from the dam a huge fallen tree has taken out almost all of the trail. After that though pretty smooth sailing. Park at the boat launch and take trail to the right all paved for about a mile and a half good out and back if you dont want to do the whole loop.
Over all great trail, would recommend and do it again.

the bf and i jogged our way there and it was pretty fast hike. Views breathtaking!

Easy trail that everyone in the family can enjoy. Will have to navigate over or around some of the down trees along the trail. Play by the water and collect some of the rocks.

Great hike

Great facility! A beautiful and easy 2 mile walk around the lake. Lots of turtles sunbathing. So scenic and serine.

Only problem was the dog poop other than that love this trail!

Great easy hike. I only did 5 miles but it was pleasant and the paved trail is well maintained and wide. Great way to spend time out doors.

I hiked the trail towards the back. And was totally deserted. Wonderful. When you walk 1 mile down a ancient cabbage palm lined Road, you come to the Florida Trail. Maybe not like the real Florida trail, but I believe it’s a side shoot that they volunteer and maintain. You can go to the left and it says it’s a 3 mile loop back to the trailhead. I did not do that. I went to the right. And you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Next time I’ll walk even further there is a Bee island it sounded interesting. It was not super hot. And they’re actually no bugs. Yay

Beautiful hike. I did not go to the mountain area due to Turkey hunting season but will definitely try next time. You can also go boating in this area. All the sailboats where a pleasure to watch.

Great to Very Great

My cousin and I did this trail, starting at Cedar Creek and headed towards the NCT side. Be warned: there is very little water on the NCT side. Theres like 1 spot to stop and thats towards the start of the trail. We ran out of water 1/2 through day 2 and it was pretty rough.

The NCT trail is really nice up and down the hills, you'll have to keep your head up as the trail is shared with mountain bikers. Unfortunately my cousin and I somehow missed the junction for the MRT and we ended up hitching a ride from a few mountain bikers back up to where the bridge is located but thats alright because hitch hiking still counts as hiking..right?
The folks at Cedar Creek couldn't have been more helpful or friendly as they let us stay the remaining night in the campground. (It was the last weekend they were open so it wasn't very busy) I will definitely return to this trail, its only a few hours drive from Chicago, so it's one of the closer places I've been. But this is a great trail for all levels of hikers from beginners who are developing their skills to experts who are just looking for a quick weekend away.
