I really liked this park and how easy it was to go through the whole area. It's nice to walk your dog through; just remember they must be on a leash at all times. It's also nice to just sit down and eat at.

This place was nice since it had a few different trails. My partner was supposed to meet me out here but the rains cut it short sadly. However before they rolled in I was able to go through 90%of the trails and it was nice to jog through and it is very well traveled but not crowded in the least which is nice. I would recommend for those who just want an afternoon or morning jog with the pup or partner.

Beautiful trail run.

Great hike, beautiful river went up to husky gap. Plenty of fishing holes. It loops if you take Jacobs trail back but it's the next parking area over.

Steep trail. Paved with plenty of rest spots. The views from the top and the AT is well worth the climb!

Short hike but the views are very nice!

Beautiful falls. Not well marked. Easy hike and well worth the stairs!!

Absolutely stunning views. Not suited for all ages/levels in my opinion. My dog hated the suspension bridge so be aware if that will be an issue for you. Worth it though for the great falls and rock faces

Always a nice and easy hike. Great for kids with the nature center and play area.

great trail for little ones ... not too strenuous.......

Very nice hike. Trails are usually pretty wet being near a dam, so bring some good boots. The sights and the swimming hole are epic.

nice hike, not too easy, but not too hard. I went on a Saturday morning and by the time I was done the park was packed.

Took only the "To Base of Falls" trail. Very short but very technical. Especially slippery when the rocks are wet. So if you're not confident in climbing/descending technical terrain with sure footing, then I wouldn't take this way.
Seriously beautiful little spot. Unfortunately I packed out lots of trash and there are cigarette butts EVERYWHERE. Please show some respect people. Don't ruin and trash these beautiful places that we are all trying to enjoy together!

At the beginning, the trail is wide and easy. Some people come back without completing the loop. The second half of the loop has a couple of challenging creek crossings an the path becomes narrower. At some points, it is wide for just one person. The creek views and sounds are very nice. At the end of the loop there are very old houses where just the fireplaces stand. We enjoyed this easy to moderate trail.

Beautiful trail, easy to moderate. Lots of stream crossings and slick rocks though. Went after a night of thunderstorms. Probably easier to step stone across during dryer times of year. Good parking area too

Enjoyed the short hike. As a beginner hiker this was perfect exercise w a little cardio, but beautiful at the falls.

Great trail! Abundance of wildlife. I saw deer, turkey and some incredible birds. I would definitely consider this a moderate trail due to the elevation changes.

Nice short trail. Well maintained. Some old growth trees and nice birds.

Great hike and some mother daughter time. We live nearby so will go again.

The hike is short and paved, too steep for wheelchairs (posted on a sign there). This trail is more for the view, which is excellent.

NOT a great place to go if you have kids, or do not want to be around copious amounts of drugs and alcohol.

Took our dog with us for a walk, and almost instantly realized how much better our local parks are for this.

If you are into drugs, underage drinking, and young trashy girls in skimpy bikinis; then this is the place for you.

Nice easy trail. Good view.

great views and very nice trail... love it

Nice trail. Loved the large footbridge. Made one mistake and kept hiking 1.5 after the waterfall. 6.88 total a bit much for an older guy.

It can be very difficult if you are out of shape for the sharp elevation climbs but very traveled and clean

Great, easy trail with beautiful lookouts!

Nice hike. Went early before it got to hot. Haven’t done this trail in 20 year. Nice sights.

Very nicely designed, maintained and it has lots of parking and bathrooms. The red hike is legit when it says difficult. short and sweet. The trails connect in different areas so you can really customize it to fit what you want. Will definitely be going back.

Loop? Not really. Tangled up with a horse trail that leaves you 2kil from your car. Ankle breaking loose stones the size of softballs. Muddy track very very poorly marked.
