Absolutely beautiful trail. Hiked most of the trail in just a few hours. There is one beautiful overlook called "The Point" and an incredible waterfall that is a stunning cliff that seems to come out of nowhere! It's massive and you can hike all the way down it and in it too! Both of these spots are near the beginning of the trail. Make sure you take the "steep trail" if you're agile! It's a lot of fun! As you hike in, you parallel a creek with some beautiful resting spots and rock formations. We didn't make it all the way to Devil's Hollow but we'll definitely be coming back soon!

*Note: the whole place is privately owned and the owners have gone above and beyond to groom the trails, provide rest areas with fresh water every mile or so and restrooms! They're are incredibly nice, professional, and hospitable.

***lastly, the All Trails map leads you to James Road. Don't turn down that road, just continue on Loop Rd about a half mile past James road and it'll be on your right! There's a sign and you can't miss it!***

Wonderful! Thank you to the Lancasters for sharing this beautiful canyon. 9 of us hiked for about 3 1/5 hours and enjoyed every minute. Truly a beautiful place! God is good!

This a great place to hike, 104 mile drive for us but worth the trip. It is private land and the couple who own it are very hospitable, providing maps, a document of key points you don't want to miss and water if needed. The trails are well maintained. It's a spectacular example of God's creation. Our trip was last minute and the hike was short, we'll be back to see what we missed.

I did not get to hike this trail because they no longer allow individual camping. My son and I drove up Friday after work, and were turned away. However, the land owners were super nice and accommodating. They got on the phone and found other places for us to camp for the night.

I am not writing this to complain. I just want to inform everyone about the camping situation. I do plan on going back one weekend, and day hiking it.

My favorite place to hike. Great trails, waterfalls, wildflowers and lovely trees, scenic bluffs and beautiful Cane Creek make this a great place to visit. The overview description needs to be updated because the Preserve now has more than 15 miles of trails and the owners are currently putting in another trail in the northern most part of the preserve. Also, some of the trails including the steep trail from the point to the canyon below, the trail to the Citadel and the new trail would more appropriately rated strenuous to difficult. None of the trails are "a walk in the park"!

We enjoyed it. Extremely easy to navigate. The folks that own it are friendly and informative. Between the Map provided, and the extremely well marked trails, you would have to be hard pressed to get lost, or not find the spot you are looking for. We made it just past the Fern Tree Caves, from the House, due to time and weather. Will be back for sure.

This was my first official hike in a very long time. I really enjoyed this hike although I did not complete it all during my visit but will definitely return. Beautiful waterfalls, trails are marked, picnic tables and portapotties. The gentlemen who owns this property has done a wonderful job and is very friendly. Cannot wait to return!!

Beautiful trail - extremely well maintained - there is a picnic shelter and even portapotties! Beautiful views, creeks, flowers, lots of fish in the creeks. Easy to moderate hike - we only covered about half the trails in 3 hours. Some places are steep and gravelled - easy to slide. Parking right by the home of the owners of the property. They provided us with map and walking sticks, and have a guest book to sign. Plan to return with backpacking gear and camp a night or two.

It was gorgeous, even for early spring with very little foliage. Lots of trails, we hiked about an hour and half and barely scratched the service. Owner was nice and very cordial. Gave us good direction and input. Is a little hard to find, the drop point from this App takes you to the loop road. From their you have to turn off what looks to be a private drive, beside a shad tree mechanic, with lots of broke down vehicles close to the road. Go past the chicken coupes through the pillars to the back of the house and their is a little welcome center on the back corner of the house.
