Our family hiked this one today, very scenic and the kids (daughter 9, son 12 and golden retriever) had a blast! The car ride over from Columbia was scenic too. Start with the blue trail and had down to the R/R tracks, then cross the small R/R bridge and had back up the yellow trail - keeping the creek to your right. We stopped for lunch and every now and then for the dog to play in the creek.

What can I say what a Amazing trail! My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our first hike on this trail. We stopped for pictures a lot and met quite a few nice people and their dogs even on this cold late fall day. The Hike was fairly easy, a lot of blown down trees altered the trail in spots but nothing that drastic. We will have to come back during the Spring/Summer to enjoy this trail and all it has to offer.

My wife and I brought our beagle on our first hike at Tucquan Glen. This quickly became our favorite hike. We followed the blue trail down the left, or south side. There are a few places where the trail gets a little tough but those spots are short. We saw a lot of other dogs enjoying the beautiful day but too bad some owners are not very responsible in cleaning up after their dog. At the railroad bridge at the river the trail loops back up the north side of the creek. The trail becomes yellow/blue. Our GPS measured the loop at 2.34 miles and two hours. We did stop for pictures frequently and chatted for awhile with other hikers. We will absolutely return to this beautiful trail.

Awesome trail, a lot of fun and contains varied conditions. **BEWARE** copperhead snakes found on this trail. We found encountered them in the brush, leafy areas. Just a tip. Be safe!

This place was AMAZING. With so many great visuals in terms of scenery (rock formations, waterfalls, forest foliage), this hike has clearly been a new favorite. Very photographic and physically challenging…. LOVE it!!

One of our favorite hikes. The stream keeps the kids interested and it's a perfect length for our 6 and 8 yo's. They wear bathing suits and water shoes and "hike the stream."

I love this trail. The markings were questionable in some spots, but backtracking was enjoyable. I have 12 year old twin girls and a 5 year old lab that loved this trail as well. They loved walking through the stream. We went on a holiday weekend and the small parking area was overly full. So pretty and very shady. A perfect family hike for those that are physically capable. It's not a rail trail and definitely not flat. No special gear is needed though, just shoes that have traction.
