Features Fall Colors · River/Creek · Spring · Views

Family Friendly Easy and short.

Fee to enter. The park is gated and closes at sundown.

Description

The trail starts from the Delaware Lake parking lot and follows Fall Creek for about 1.1 miles. A portion of the trail is on an elevated boardwalk overlooking the river. Halfway through, is a small hill with a staircase to climb. There is a picnic table at the top where you can stop and enjoy the view of the creek and the forest.

The trail runs parallel to the paved Harrison Trace Trail, but it is not visible for most of the hike. The trail ends near the eastern portion of the park where it joins the Harrison Trace Trail. Here you have the option of hiking on the paved Harrison Trace Trail or continuing through the woods along the Camp Creek Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Occasionally, you'll spot a deer.
