I would rate this trail as moderate, not easy. There was a very large log that had to be climbed over. Also lots of roots and slippery rocks. The falls are beautiful and well worth the trip.

This was my first hiking trail, period. I chose it because it's rated Easy. I enjoyed it as my intro to hiking. Not very scenic in terms of beautiful views .. not very challenging in terms of getting a work out, but I quite enjoyed it for what it was .. pretty flat with a few "steps" .. some roots & rocky paths, but mostly dirt & sand. A couple neat water areas. Sooo, yeah. Get some.

Paved in most sections, partially compact gravel, partially dirt. Would be better with a mountain bike but my hybrid did fine. Super exposed to the sun and some areas have lackluster scenery.

While it’s a bit short and easier than I’d like, it has some nice varied foliage, beach access, good bird and alligator watching, viewing areas, and a castle. Wear bug spray!

The amount of mosquitos here was insane. The worst I’ve experienced in all SC trails I’ve done this summer. They were aggressive and swarmed, following after me. Despite bug spray and long pants, I have many bites (through my clothing). Might try again in the winter.

Beautiful string of falls. Hard to see from trail, which is part of the longer foothills trail.

If you like to hike start at the parking lot at the Oconee station. If you want the shorter version. Leave the Oconee station turn right go one tenth mile park one left side of road and hike to falls. From this location falls is .75 miles. If you start from parking lot it is 1.5 miles and trail crosses the road. Really easy hike. Great falls

TONS of downed trees. A few moments where we weren’t sure if we were going the right way (also it was overcast and thunderstorming so that that didn’t help lol). The app’s map helped a lot, so download it. Crossed water maybe four times (maybe more than you usually would, due to the rain). The waterfalls were amazing and totally worth it. Saw lots of frogs, a couple snakes, a crawfish, and a deer. First little bit of the “trail” is just walking through open fields of greens. The trail is super strenuous the last 1/4 mile. Lots of rocky uphills and trees to climb over. Would do it again simply due to the light traffic, lush greenery, and awesome falls.

A lot of beautiful things to see along the trail. Challenging hike but well worth it!

After reading the reviews I wanted to check it out for myself. Unfortunately, everyone is spot on about this trial. It's over grown, and not well maintained. The trail disappears after 0.25 in. This places has a lot of potential to be a nice place to hike, if they cared about it. Also, on the drive in, there is a lot of trash and old furniture on the side of the road. which might discourage people from wanting to continue. 9 -15 -2019

This is a bike trail. No foot traffic allowed. you will get run over by bikers. instead, take the disc golf trail. The grass is a little higher but there's no traffic.

Great trail through the forest. Very quiet and peaceful. Only the sounds of nature! Easy trail and I Loved it!

Very strenuous at the falls but worth it. Take water. Yellow jackets rampant so be careful.

Short hike but a great waterfall.

We walked the Perrin Trail, which I assume is just part of the Grissom Parkway Trail! It’s mostly shady and a pleasant walk on paved trail. As usual my problem with near civilization trails is the traffic noise! Very good for a city trail though!

It’s a good sampler platter of the trails. Not a lot of it is uphill and mostly all of it is shaded. Some cool creek and downhill views. We didn’t see a lot a wildlife, but I’m sure it was out there. We got turned around a couple times because there are a lot of intersections and merges with other trails. Be sure to grab a trail map at the office because the trail map on AllTrails isn’t exact. I would definitely recommend.

About 2/3 of this trail is a grassy road with lots of birds, butterflies, and wildflowers. The last 1/3 is through a swamp. Make sure to pack sunscreen for the first part, and bug spray for the second. Unfortunately, I was unable to make it all the way to Kingfisher pond due to lots of downed trees. The last part of the trail could use some maintenance. Saw lots of redwing blackbirds, herons, and a raccoon!

Mostly flat narrow trail w scenic views of old clay pits (now ponds) and creek. Saw deer and a heron on my hike. Overgrown in some parts but navigable. Great option near town and a local brewery if you’re planning out your day

Ran this trail hoping to get in a good 9 mile run. Overall the whole loop was about 10.5 miles. Was very impressed it was well marked, not overgrown, and in good condition. Some of the connecting trails I have been on aren’t as well marked as this one. Lots of good varying elevation but it’s not overkill. I ran from 8am-10:30am and didn’t see anyone else on the trail. Can’t wait for my next run here.

Did the Table Rock to Sassafras and back hike. About 20 miles total. Great views from Bald Knob and Sassafras. Got caught in an afternoon thunderstorm on the last 4 miles. Overall took about 8 hours and was 5,800 calories according to my hr monitor. Good training hike.
