This trail had some nice diversity, an old shed, two sink holes, river views off the bluff, small cave. Worth the hike when at the park. But, the last one I would do if I have time for the others.

I did this early morning and the sunrise cast nice shadows, we still had fall color with the leaves, nice diversity with the hollows and small creek crossings. Overall a nice hike.

Lime Kiln Trail

Nice little trail. Trailhead is located right off the parking area, near the old stone kiln structure. This is a loop trail, so it doesn't matter which direction you start. We chose to start to the left and went clockwise around the loop. The trail is rated as difficult, but we found it to be more like "moderate". This trail is actually not bad for most people, except for maybe very little children, elderly folks who have trouble walking, or those with physical disabilities. The trail starts out flat and level and parallels a creek along the road until it comes to a wooden boardwalk and then the spring which feeds the creek. Here, you have to traverse the water using a series of stones. After that, a little further up the trail, the trail turns and starts going up the hill, and gets steep and very rocky...almost like steps. This was the toughest part of the trail as far as we were concerned. There are a few other uphill and down hill sections that will sucking a little air....but hey, its a hiking trail, not a walking path right? the terrain in the rest of the hike isn't too bad......but it is rocky in a few sections so be sure to mind your footing so you don't trip or twist an ankle. Basically, this is a nice little trail, for a walk in the woods. We also saw some decent fall colors when we went.
