Great trails to follow! You will get your hike on.

I took the Mountain Bridge Passageway trail, it was a decent workout-it’s mostly uphill. The waterfall is not easily seen from the trail, but if you go off to the side and adventure down, you get better views. One of the bridges is where one of the waterfalls descends, and on the side was an awesome view-but definitely be careful as it was slippery. I only saw two other people who were really friendly. Tried to take the oil camp creek trail-but it was extremely overgrown and kind of spooky. My dog loved this trail!

Really pretty trail. The autumn leaves truly made this hike seem yellow. A few easy stream crossings, I was glad to have a hiking pole though. The waterfall at the end is beautiful. About a 200 foot elevation gain on the way back from the falls. The hike from the falls back to the car took us 35 minutes.

Great hike with awesome payoff at the end. My one quibble is the difficulty rating for the hike. This is definitely not a "moderate" hike though a physically fit person shouldn't have too much trouble completing it.

Beautiful and easy walk to beach. Plan trip according to tide flow.

Hiked today. Great weather. Not much wildlife just some birds, squirrels, and one little frog. Trail needs a lot of work. It is very poorly marked and the bridge before the last stretch was wrecked by a fallen tree. I had fun but I wouldn’t do it again.

Great Hike! A bit tough, but well worth it!

nice easy paved walk. Lots of birds.

This was an awesome scenic hike to check out the fall leaves and put in a great workout! Pinnacle side was very lightly trekked while the table rock side was busy. The actual ridge trail itself was fantastic and clearly marked. We tracked is at 10.3 total.

Nice trails but the blue trail has considerable downed trees and the boardwalk is still closed. The other trails lead to a nice lake but watch out for the gators. Best hardwood hiking in the area.

nice well marked trails

Nice open trail. Trail (road) winds thru an old rice field. Road was in good condition with some mud but easy to get around. Quiet space, with some views of the N Santee River. If you go, take the fourth right to take you back to beginning. Otherwise, you will have to navigate about 500 yards of highway 17N with hardly any shoulder. Good exercise. Would do it again.

There may be better alternatives to hike, aside from the River Trail. The trail was quite buggy and very poorly marked. Trees were down left and right and the trail took 5+ hours to complete...in mild darkness.

Decent hike! Far away view from the falls, but nice overlook spot to picnic

Your workout for the week. Not a casual hike. We hiked the shortest, steepest trail up to the Mount LeConte summit in TN. That was a walk in the park compared to this. I gave it 4 stars, though, be cause it challenges you and there are great views.

First - this is NOT a loop trail - It's an out & back between the Walhalla State Fish Hatchery and the Chattooga River. The incline is not the reported. 1,263ft by any means. Relatively straight trail with few obstacles - you can keep a very nice pace. Small waterfalls along the way with a few chances to get close to the water and climb on some rocks. Fall colors are PEAK right now.

this trail has great diversity of plant life and landscape...a quiet hike through tall trees along a creek.

Great trail - really well marked and maintained. The views were absolutely beautiful and I loved hiking with the sound of the creek and waterfalls nearly the whole way up. I had to wait about an hour to get into the park, but it was well worth it. If you're going on the weekend, I would advise getting there before 9.

Great 1.5-2 hr hike, foliage had a lot of variations and we didn’t see a single person on the trail with us.

Beautiful fall views along the trail. Great places to take pictures. Trail was marked and very easy run.

This is now simply called the Paradise Trail which meets up with other trails along the way. we hiked it with our dog and encountered many bikers and only one other hiker. I'm reluctant to call this anything but a biking trail given that we had to constantly yield which detracted from the enjoyment. all wooded, no views. I'll come back on my mountain bike next time. great hard clay for biking.

My 15 year old son and I hiked the Pinnacle Trail to the Ridge Trail, and connected back to the Table Rock Trail all the way to the overlook. We did this Saturday, November 2, 2018. The weather was perfect, but everybody and their brother was there making it pretty crowded at the overlook and on the way down (we took the Table Rock Trail back down). We started at 10:30am and arrived back to the parking lot at 4:40pm. We spent about 15 minutes enjoying the overlook. We hiked this same route when my son was 11. We just can’t work up the nerve to take the Table Rock Trail up, because it is very steep ALL THE WAY. We plan to come back many more times, but will probably come on a weekday from now on, due to the crowds. I would advise taking some good snacks and plenty of water. My only complaint is there are no places to pee if you’re a female, but I do believe porta potties here and there would ruin the experience! LOL

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

Park closes at 5pm on Sunday so we had about 10 minutes. No time to do the trail but it seemed cool

Left at 7:21 on a beautiful fall day. will do it again.

Super fun! Pretty easy hike and we saw a few people camping
