    Ed Bitsy and the Trail Hound said: We hiked this trail on November 28, 2017. Trail starts inside the park and it is well marked and easy to moderate walking. The section along side the creek is beautiful and offers several places to stop and take pictures. It actually has some benches for resting and enjoying the views! IMO, start at the north (upper) entrance and you will experience the steeper section "downhill" through the woods before you get to the creek.

    Robert Singleton said: This trail is a delightful hike along the lovely Spring Creek, whose clear waters cascade over dramatic rock formations. The trail follows the creek for about a mile and provides high views from the ridge as well as dropping to the creek in several places. The trail itself is well tended but has some rough footage in places. The creek is at a considerably lower elevation than the trailhead, so the ascent/descent is fairly strenous. The convenience of the picnic area makes for a perfect combination.
