Hobo camp setup right when you go down under bridge. Garbage everywhere . Also more back alley then nature . Good for bikes I suppose

Bear Waller Gap Trail is one of my favorites. It is a challenging trail in places. I usually do a full length both ways. I suggest starting at Defeated creek entrance if you plan on a round trip. if you only want to do one way or are a beginner, I would suggest starting at the overlook and having a ride to return you to your vehicle.

Don’t use the directions attached to the app unless you want to end up at the start of somebody’s driveway and no signal to be able to get yourself out of the rocky roads and steep mountain turns

Great hike and views. Steady incline the whole way up.

Me and my friends had a lot of fun hiking this trail! I highly recommend going off the beaten path when you see the opportunity for a good view. However, be very vigilant in keeping an eye on the trail markers, it will take sharp turns and leave you lost if you aren’t careful. I wouldn’t recommend taking young children on this trail because parts of it are difficult and very steep.

Good hike with several good overlooks. The loop is the best trail here. Most the others are hard on your legs

Very steep in some places and the overlook was okay but not worth all the uphill. The river is nice and I enjoyed the bridge across a stream.

Great trail, but difficult for older and beginners. Enjoyed it!!!

Muddy, overgrown. Beautiful scenery, but be prepared to eat webs and bugs for 2.5 miles.

This is a wonderful trail. The falls are great and the water is super cold… perfect after sweating your a$$ off hiking back to the car. The overlook at Eagle Bluff is awesome as well. At only 1.1 miles each way, I just wish it was longer.

Good easy hike for family even with small kids. Watch out for snakes along river.

Nice hike!! Pretty waterfalls!

Easy. Fun. Nature-like.

We're new to the area and went here for a run. Very clean and easy trail. Busy. We'll be back as we train for different races.

Best Dog Park in the state.

This trail is perfect during the spring for wildflower spotting. It is short, but it does have an incline.

Hike was super easy and absolutely gorgeous. It is heavily trafficked and marked well. It’s about 1.0 mile to the over look and there are several drop offs. We saw a rattle snake baking in the sun and got some amazing pictures.

We found this trail slightly challenging, But beautiful and well worth the hike.

My son and I did the Collins Gulf trail on a beautiful July weekend and spent overnight at Sawmill Camp backcountry camp. Instead of the loop we did down and back on this trail with full packs. This is a great variation of rock hopping, switchbacks and slight elevation forest trail. The elevation change was almost 1100’ over approximately 5.2 miles, most of which is in the front end from the trailhead parking lot. So down was not bad but back a different story.

This is a strenuous hike as plotted. I would recommend doing the loop rather than down and back if you do as a two day. Gulf trail down and rim trail back.

Not a great trail. It is overgrown with no real views. Also, not a lot of people hike this trail, so prepare to battle some spider webs. We did see some deer though

had time for about half, fairly easy up hill, ran water off the trail pretty well considering the rain at the time. convenient to do along with other activities.

Love love love the CT!

A true hidden beauty! Absolutely beautiful!

Amazing hike. Had to wade through the river 3-4 times. Many times the trail was completely under water. Right at the start of the trail we went right and unless you do the major river crossing first it dead ends. If take a left right out of the trail you work your way up to the big crossing and gain a little confidence. The river was high due to lots of rain fall. This hike was excellent. The 10.1 mike loop is extremely accurate.

Hiked the "Baker Hollow Branch" of the East Lakeshore Trail this morning. Neither the trailhead info board or any of the trail markers list it as such, only referring to the "Mizell Trailhead" or "Mizell Bluff Trailhead". The trail itself is good and the hike would be easy for most. The trailhead parking area is somewhat secluded by surrounding trees. There are a few homes near the trailhead and I heard some barking, but didn't encounter any loose or stray animals. Overall, I'd say it rates better than good.

Perfect place for endless photos. Great place to bring the kids and enjoy the cool water.

so pretty!! not very hard at all and the view is so worth it.

It is a great 5mi hike. parking is limited but some trail magic parking just past the entrance.

amazing views and great if you are starting out.

was nothing more than walking behind businesses. very polluted with trash. once you get to the underpath with the graffiti, turn around.
