Started this trail from Enee Point. It’s a nice hike, with some steeper inclines. As you climb closer to the top, it’s pretty clear why it’s named Pine Cliff trail, as dry pine needles cover the ground, which added a nice picturesque feature. To reach the peak, you will need to scale some rocks, but that just adds to the adventure! The view of the lake from the top can be a bit covered with greenery, but if you position yourself just right, you can see some very blue water down at the bottom.

Continued to Lost Canyon Trail from Stephen’s falls. There were some beautiful rock formations with regular encounters with small creeks throughout. Trail is well marked. I definitely recommend bug spray! There were some steep inclines, but worth it!

Stephen’s Falls is markedly advertised from the main road through the park. It’s a very short hike down to the waterfall, though there are some steep areas. Beautiful scenery. Who doesn’t love a waterfall? You can connect to the Lost Canyon Trail for additional hiking.

It was a nice morning for a hike.

Nice easy hike. Beautiful scenery.

Flat, easy trail with no technical or difficult sections. It’s good for walking/hiking and for easy running. Close to where I live so a nice break from asphalt trails.

Felt like more of a walk than a hike. Either super sunny or all shade and bugs. Some steep hills which is a good challenge but since it’s all graded felt more like a walk than a hike. The falls were great to see though but PACKED with people swimming and lounging. I’d suggest a weekday.

inaccurate title so giving it 3 star. Map depicts a loop combining *part* of east bluff trail and east bluff WOODS trail. check park map carefully. Be prepared, this area has paved areas and strenuous rock stair ascents.

Not a long or particularly adventurous hike, but the unique scenery makes it worth while.

The trail itself is very challenging and wonderfully rustic. From an aesthetic point, it’s great! I had a hard time finding the loop and ended up turning around because the mosquitos were absolutely awful. I even sprayed myself on the trail but nothing worked. I would love to try and explore this trail some more, but the bugs might keep me away

the park is very beautiful, but the trails are very poorly marked. if they were better marked, it would be a great hike.

Fun trail, incredibly dog friendly. Bikers, runners, and hikers are all very friendly and respectful of each other

I’m sorry jkghf

Amazing views of the lake. My 4, 6, and 9 year did the whole thing. It is harder coming down than going up.

Great for biking or walking

Pretty great views but my only complaints are that: (1) the trail becomes just impossible to follow after the caves with zero trail markers the whole time that I eventually had to turn around with fear of being lost and (2) the lack of fencing around the caves would make it extremely dangerous to bring small children. That being said, the trail was overall very easy walking, only a few spots where I had to take big step ups/step downs, moments where the trail was slippery, but overall a nice, enjoyable trial! Lots of tree coverage from the sun, cute little streams to enjoy, nice openings where you can enjoy the lake and it’s expanse, and pretty decent teaser views of the caves.

Definitely going to give a work out of some technical skills. The ride today at 5:30am was quiet and fast. It took some doing to access the trails due to the actual park gates being closed til 7am. There were numerous tree felled that block most of the trail crosses along Pike River. But with some effort, work your way up the ravine and it’s pretty good!

About a 20 min hike, one way. Actually got a jogging stroller about 95% of the way down trail. Last 500 feet are down steep set of stone steps. Reward is worth it. Go early. We had the place to ourselves for awhile until a pontoon boat pulled onto shore and ruined the view. Small, labeled parking lot off river road. In the morning the beach is shaded. We waded in the river for a bit. Water seemed clean. Nice sand beach with fine sand and few rocks. Entry into river is not rocky and smooth.

took the short trail, flies were bad. very nice for the little bit I was there

Great workout. Steep hills are challenging.

red trail backwards with detour from 3rd beach to 2nd beach.

recommend bug spray and hiking boots for full enjoyment. mostly dry creek bed lots of fun for exploration. unmaintained trail with dangerous edges - not for young children.

No doubt a bit steep (and very narrow spaces at points), but once you hit the top the view is absolutely gorgeous.

Awesome! Super steep start but worth the effort. Amazing views. We did tumbling rocks on the way back. Neat as well.
