Great family friendly trail. Lots of wildlife- mostly birds as it was a cold and windy day.

This is a beautiful trail!! Nice scenery with the water right beside the trail !

Lots of roots for my hard-tail bike but it’s just the right length for a good one hour stress relief ride at least three times a week. Don’t be afraid of puddles or swamp animals and you’ll be in for a great ride/ hike... hiking it takes about 4-4.5 hrs. Love this place... beautiful trees too, especially in the “Amazon” section.

This is a very well-maintained trail. The first part is basically a concrete sidewalk that leads to a small waterfall on a tributary of Cedar Shoals, From there, the battlefield trail leads into the scene of the Battle of Musgrove Mills from the Revolutionary War. The trail features a large number of signs outlining the battle and various developments that led to the American victory. It's a short and very easy walk. We recorded 1.9 miles to and from the parking lot. The thing that struck me about this trail is the amount of holly trees along the trail. Haven't seen this many on any other trail. It also features a couple of the biggest holly trees I've ever seen.

Great for someone wanting a historic walk. Well marked and good historic signage. Good for families and dogs.

Stunning historic bridge and rushing water. Plenty of foot traffic and some police presence when we went. Truly gorgeous walk.

For local hikes, this is a five star hike. I only gave it three stars because if you are really wanting to compare it with trails all over the state, especially in the mountains, then this trail would not rate that high.

We hit this trail in mild rain, and temperature in the 40's. I hike with my dogs, so those are ideal conditions not to encounter other humans. The trail has some decent views, and decent rolling terrain. I started at the trail head and headed to the right side of the loop. After about 5 miles there was a nice Creek, with a small boat landing. So that is where we had a little picnic. There is a variety of views, marshes, Foster creek, some grassy areas...just a nice day in the woods.

Really pretty trails but many were flooded due to the rain. Hope to go back when it dries out.

Nice, easy trail through a couple different environments (swamp, highland forest, rice fields).

This is my go to for walking or running. I love it!

Beautiful trail anytime of the year. My son and I love this place. Very quite and peaceful. Birds and alligators galore.

Beautiful! Water on both sides and interesting history.

The trail is more for historical buffs than hikers, but it's a nice walk none-the-less. Plenty of benches along the trail for those not used to hiking but want to get outside. Very family friendly. The small fall is very close to the parking lot. Took my 6 year old through the trail, promising her we'd stop at the fall on the way back. The area is a nice little spot to play and splash around in. Would definitely recommend for a family with kids looking to get outside.

Cheraw State Park bike trail is actually an outstanding trail run. The trail is located outside of the park off of Hwy 1. It's fairly technical with lots of short climbs and descents. This is the only trail in the Pee Dee that I know of that is challenging. Approx 7 miles

Great if you have no sense of smell! Seriously, they are venting raw sewage around every turn.

Gorgeous, with many water views, alligators, trees, and easy walking. Partially sand, partially boardwalk and partially concrete!

The trails are all level. The views are amazing as you walk through the swamp, the tidal marshes, and the forest! Easy hike!

paved running paths, easy to take dog running. Go for walks etc.

Very enjoyable walk. Some parts of the trail have new boardwalks. We could not go through the hardwood as the trail was under water today. We saw a blue herring, a snake, baby alligator, and a couple of other birds.

Took little man out here this past week, entering the trail is a little rocky as it’s old pavement and a bit steep. The trail itself is gravely and well maintained. We followed the sign directing us towards rapids/mill ruins. Roughly three quarters of a mile in I got bad vibes so we turned around. But that wasn’t so bad as at the beginning of the trail you can access the creek which was fun for little one to splash and play. Never got to the waterfall or ruins.(((edit))) after looking through the photos others have posted just know the sign at the trail head does not have the waterfall sign any longer! So go left for the waterfall

Worth a trip! Had a really good time with my husband and our two boys (9 & 7). Bring water and bug spray! Baby alligators (it’s August right now), herons, orb spiders & found some crab claws and raccoon tracks. Will go back

This is a very nice trail for everyone but it isnt a loop. it is mostly paved along the river. There are access points at both ends of the trail.
About a mile in is access to unpaived mountain bike trails I've never been on.
As a Pokemon Go fan I appreciate the fact that there are Pokestops at the beginning and one about a mile in as well as a gym about 3/4 mile in and tons of critters as I call them

Great scenery with a little bit of history. The pavement is well taken care of.

For the most part, it’s an easy trail with a few steep incline hills

Nice urban trail. It's paved so should have worn running shoes instead of our hiking boots

Really nice part of Rock Hill

Nice location for river activities, but most of the hiking trail is private property. You get a mile loop at most.

Great Trail!
