Easy little hike with plenty of views. Waterfall, arches and wildlife. We stayed at Alum Ford Camp a short distance away and drove up to this trail. Easy trail, great for trail running too. You can add more trails to turn this into a much bigger backpacking loop, even including part of the Sheltowee Trace. Spectacular views, not quick up to full spring blooming yet, but beautiful nonetheless. Bring a camera and save these memories.

Wonderful trail! I took my 5 year old with me, and she had a blast. There is a nice sandy area by the waterfall where many kids were playing, and some were swimming! We did not arrive prepared for these activities, but I think it would be worthwhile to bring sand/swim gear if you do this trail with kids. The arch is beautiful!

Very tough hike, only got to the 1/2 way point bc we started to late in the day. Was well marked, wasn't very exciting though, its just a lot of woods, no rugged terrain, cliffs, waterfalls, etc at least on the first half going clockwise. Was definitely a good workout tho & enjoyed being outside. Would recommend for somewhat fit person, got the legs burning!

This is not an Easy walk!!!! It is beautiful with an amazing arch, rhododendron, wild flowers and snakes. The trail is well marked and there are some great spots to camp or picnic. But it is not easy.

Lots of thorny overgrowth. plenty of mud. some really cool sections of moss and wildflowers. we may have come at the wrong time, may be more beautiful later in the spring. our 5 year old completed the trail. GPS claims the entire distance to be 7.1 miles.

small campground just off the main road in Somerset Ky. lovely spots for trailers or pop ups. some tent sites. electric and water. nice clean shower houses. pretty views of lake from most spots in the campground. A lot of sites are very close to the road. Come early. Nice base location to visit other lake activities. boat launching ramp conveniently located just before campground. Not space to park boat trailer and vehicle at your site though. or it looks like it would be difficult. No family activities on site when we were there but nice and tranquil
