Five days since the last reviews. The mud really must’ve dried up because there really wasn’t much to worry about and what was there you can easily navigate around those parts. Water level was still too high up at the top and because things had a thin film of ice, it was too dangerous to cross to the other side. Very beautiful hike. Great to see the mountains through the trees without the leaves on and the waterfall was really flowing nicely. The steps are not that bad. They are spaced apart with enough time in between to recover. Got on the trail at 9:30 in the morning. Few folks on the trail at that time. Everybody was coming up when we were coming down and the cars were already lined up in the road trying to get a parking space. We’ll have to do it again when we can cross to the other side of the falls.

We only did half of the trail but it was great. Hard for a double stroller but we left it before going down to the dam.

Beautiful views of the lake.

Loved this! The road to get to the trail head is not meant for anything other than a truck, but overall amazing hike

We had a great time, only made it just past the 2.5 mile marker and too the off shoot trail that leads to the falls and turned back. We will go back and do the whole trail another day. Had a dog and my husband carried our toddler on his back. It’s a well travelled trail overall, but you’re able to feel alone as well. There were a few really mucky and slick parts you had to climb rocks on. Just take your time and you’ll be fine!

A very nice walk thru the woods. The trail follows several small streams with multiple small waterfalls. I would suggest using the App for this hike because there are many side trails and crossroads and the trail changes names many times.

bridge out

We could not make it to the island bc the bridge is not yet built or washed out. Area of the trails had debris due to former high water conditions. And one area had standing water, but we ventured toward the alternate trail formed by previous hikers in order to go around this. A really nice walk on a stupendously gorgeous day!

Your basically following the roadway on a nice wide sidewalk. But, it was a nice sunny day to be out on the bike.

Short out and back from a short distance down trail from the western trailhead. Despite all the rain recently, not too wet, except in a few places

We started out at the trailhead in Table Rock State Park and took the Pinnacle Mountain Trail to Mile Creek Falls Trail and back. It was a good hike, especially if you’re looking for something where you’re gaining a decent amount of elevation. I would say it’s a moderate to hard hike normally, today was rough because I had just shy of 50 lbs on my back (my toddler). Overall it was strenuous enough for my wife, our dog, and I. Definitely need to watch your footing especially through the creeks. Not sure if it’s because of the amount of rail we’ve gotten recently or not, but there were a lot of very loose rocks during the slippery portions of the hike.

Great walk along a dirt road. Some historical elements with the old ore mines from the civil war era. You can see Charlotte thru the trees when the leaves are down, but the views would be a lot better if there weren’t quite as many trees.

Very busy trail today, but beautiful blue skies and perfect weather. Spotted an eagle while we were at hanging out on Table Rock.

It is a great trail, and while the bridge is out, there is another bridge not as far down you can cross and make it a loop. A lot of fun!

It’s been raining for the last two weeks so it makes since to be muddy. Plenty of shade and benches to sit. The story of the battle on signs along the way to stop and breathe (and not be embarrassed “oh hey cool *deep breath* another story *deep breath* let’s stop for a long time and read *deep breath*)
