The trail offers an escape from commuters which was great. It is very clean and well maintained.

This hike is only 0.2 miles long, however, connects to a longer trail (maybe a mile long) that went along the stream. It was a pretty hike but many trees were down. At one point we had to climb down into the stream to get around the tree blocking the path.

The trail does not exist at the geo-referenced trailhead. It is all fenced off and overgrown there. Instead, you can join part of the trail below the nature center. It nice enough for that part of the trail, but a bit muddy. I did that part several times to get the mileage I wanted. There is one part that is unsafe for people without proper shoes due to vertical climb with mud. Pretty forest and nicely shaded with a few spur trails coming off it. Just don’t try to start trail at trailhead.

Grew up with this trail love it!!!

Took the doggos on these trails today. The water fall vista trail was a little muddy, but it's the woods. There will be mud. Nice hike. Easy. Dogs had a great time and so did we. They provide poop bags if you don't bring your own and a couple waste disposals. Good day.

it was a nice easy hike. The waterfalls were actually pretty cool, the main one is probably about 15 feet high. The trails aren't marked very well from the parking lot, just walk down the road and you'll see the trail behind the last cabin.

very good trail, nice view of the Ohio River. Quiet trail connects to the Purple Heart Trail in Beech Bottom, WV then connects to the Brook Trail in Wellsburgh, WV. Approx. 24 miles total from Heritage Port in downtown Wheeling.
