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.

Beautiful waterfall, bolder garden and cave. Well kept trails that are clearly marked. View from the point is amazing.

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.

Absolutely beautiful! But, Jim the one that owns it was very rude! He was speeding down the beginning of the trail andis going to end up running someone over one day. He yelled infront of our kids and scared them to the point that they wanted to leave. His rudeness was unnecessary and I will never go back as long as he is there. He ruined our whole trip because one of us didnt bring one our truck back to the main road immediately after we unpacked to camp. It was a honest mistake it was our first (and last) time there. We apologized a million times (beacause it wasnt something serious) and he continued to yell and scare the kids. All he had to do was ask us to move a truck, instead he acted like we set the forest on fire. Worst camping trip EVER.

Beautiful! Tons and tons of sites! Multiple Waterfalls. The preserve is very well maintained, trails and points of interest are clearly marked. I counted four privies that were clean, multiple areas to sit including picnic tables including drinking water in coolers at each of these sites. all this and we didn't come close to seeing everything. The creek itself is gorgeous with crystal clear water that has a blue tint in the deep spots. There are also several creek crossings. The owners are very friendly and super helpful. We definitely will be returning, hopefully for an overnight. This is simply a must see! There is a Facebook page with more info also.

This is a very nice shirt hike. I believe the loop is around 8 miles but there is lots to see here. More than one trail available to you.
