I remembered this one being a lot of hills. I'd say it is medium level. the view is gorgeous once you get there.

Trail is nice if you like walking around in an open field. Very peaceful this time of year (December). We were lucky to see a barge coming down the river and the bluffs on the other side were cool. There are no clear signs or markers where the trails start or split off. It’s hard to know which direction you are going.

Another very well maintained TN state park. The shelters and campground restrooms were very clean. The moderate effort Eagle Point hiking trail is well marked. Nice elevation changes. Campsite #2 offers a spectacular view of the river and a very ample area for several campers. While sitting on the flat rock at the overlook at #2 a bald eagle flew by us treetop 30 yards away...WOW!! There is no water at the campsites so you need to pack it in or you can traverse down a very steep slope to the river. Overall..excellent park with friendly rangers!! Will return.

Great hike! Awesome views!

Loved the scenery and definitely gets your heart rate up

This was an awesome hike! Great scenery and a wonderful view once you get there!

I give it 5 stars for around the Memphis area. Lot of ups and downs. Went during the fall and had some pretty views of deep valleys and the wetlands. Couple of benches set up along the way to sit and rest and enjoy the view. Only down side I see is it is an inner city park and the trains go right beside the park but overall a nice little park.

Went looking for a "hiking" trail; this turned out to be more of a "dog walking/urban exercise" trail. Lots of dogs, (my pup loved it, but if your dog is the anti-social type, this is probably not the place for you), so watch your step! Lots of doggy droppings! Not very difficult, one or two minor hills. A good portion of the trail runs parallel to a busy road, lots of very "non-serene" traffic noise. This trail also seems to be prettily heavily travelled.If you just want a decent place to take a walk, this is ok. If you like more of an actual backwoods hiking experience, definitely go somewhere else.

The trail up to the AT shelter was approximately 4 miles. Our group was three relatively fit adults (20-23), but adult life has taken its toll it seems because it was one of the more grueling hikes we've done in recent memory. Another nearby hike we do regularly is Margarette Falls, but I'd question classifying that as an intermediate trail, whereas I'd rate this one more like intermediate+ to the low-end of difficult.

It was rocky in the beginning segments, and after the first bridge crossing its relatively leisurely, but after the 2nd or 3rd bridge it's straight uphill the rest of the way. At least 2 miles are straight up the side of the mountain. It's beautiful, for sure, even now in the early part of winter.

If you're an experienced hiker, or confident in your level of fitness I wholeheartedly recommend it. It's a fun and pretty trail with variable terrain and isn't *very* heavily traveled, but there were some nice older ladies who put us to shame when we went. We felt like we were dying on the final leg up to the shelter.

I guarantee I will be very sore tomorrow.
