This is a nice hike, a gradual climb but nothing too strenuous. The trail follows Fall Creek for most of the hike. Once you get to the Lime Kilns there are some buildings and informational signs which add interest to this outing. Watch out for tree roots and rocks! The trail can be a bit treacherous.

These directions do not take you to a dog-friendly trail. Upon arrival, I was surprised to see the trail clearly marked "no dogs", and unfortunately had to pack up the gang and seek out other options.

Took 3 kids ages 11, 5, and 3 on this! Took us 2 hours with stopping to eat a light backpack lunch in the magical forest by the creek! Tons of amazing picture opportunities, beautiful easy hike. Only a slight up hill to the limn kilns. The history you can feel! Extra large mushrooms growing along the trail. It felt like there may be little fairies hiding in the forest! Pretty magical and the kids absolutely loved it! Highly recommend for those who want a decent quick easy hike!
