Very nice this time of year. The trail can be a little hard to follow with all the leaves but overall I had a really good time. Stay on the lower trail and you will have the opportunity to see some beautiful waterfalls.

The upper trail around the field area at Old Stone Fort is an easy, nice stroll. It takes you on the INSIDE of the perimeter wall built by the Indians who lived here many, many years ago. You still get views of the waterfalls without the up and down of the other trail. Very nice outing, would be great for kids and dogs.

Please note: This is Old Stone Fort State Park. Since it is a state park, there is no private property like the first review states.

Awesome. My first real trail hiking experience. It is so relaxing anywhere, especially near the water. The Stone Fort is really neat too. Have been twice, each with a different person so the experience each time was dramatically different. I love it here!

I actually really liked this trail for how flat it was. If you camp and hike from the campground you get a little more activity in. Delve off onto the escarpment facing trails on the both the southeast and southwest sides to get decent elevation, river and water fall views, and up close encounters with lots of deer and wildlife.

This isn't private property, like the other review states. Walked it today! Very easy trail if you just walk the enclosure.
