Wonderful trail. Not too difficult but make sure to use the cable crossings. Creek rocks can be very slick and depending on when you go the creek may be high. CC 3 and 4 were dry while I was here. Beautiful overlook at the end, though it may be more picturesque in the winter. Overall great experience. Make sure to get here early, as this trail tends to fill up quick.

The cave area was really cool in temperature and for viewing. Loud construction going on at the lake.

Great hike. Between the view and the bridges it was a wonderful day in the wood.

Very good changes in elevation and footing. Most of hike is spent walking through the forest with trees surrounding one on all sides, as if within a tunnel of foliage. During one section, the lake is immediately adjacent, and access to the lake makes swimming or picnicking possible. In other sections, the trail leads through fields and up hills filled with wild flowers.
The previous reports of spiders is accurate. Be aware of spider webs. Of course spiders who place webs across paths like this are very unlikely to be on these strands, for it would limit their lifespan, and they aren't dangerous to humans.

A little over 5 miles in and out makes for an uncommonly pleasant walk in the woods. There are essentially three sections: The drop into/ climb out of the creek bottom made up of four switchbacks down an otherwise very steep slope; the sunny glade walk through the brushy bottom lined this time of years with goldenrod, coneflowers, and other yellow flora I can't identify; and the deeply shaded forest trail you pick up after creek crossing 5. The last of these eventually makes a relatively short climb up to the cliffs themselves. TEVA or similar supportive sandals are the right footwear - plenty for the steeper sections and essential for the creek crossings. Bring plenty of water for hot days.

A nice little city hike. Several nice overlooks too. It would be nice if the city would go in and dispose of the litter and leftovers from campsites of yester-years. I would definitely do it again though, and bring my swimming trunks!

Nice trail!
