This place was absolutely incredible. It has definitely made my business trip that much more enjoyable. I will be bringing my wife back here at some point. The couple the owns it does an amazing job at keeping at maintained and are extremely friendly.

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.
