Gorge Overlook Professional Reviews and Guides

"The 0.8-mile Woodland Trail and the 0.7-mile Gorge Overlook Trail combine to make a 2-mile round-trip hike from the Nature Center. The route takes you over Cane Creek Cascade on a suspension bridge, around a blufftop above Cane Creek Gorge with grand views, and then to the top of Fall Creek Falls.

Behind the nature center, a sidewalk leading right takes you down to a platform where you’ll look up at 45-foot-high Cane Creek Cascade. Just downstream to the right is the top of Cane Creek Falls, which can be seen from an overlook on the north side of the nature center. To walk the Woodland Trail, marked with a yellow blaze, bear left behind the nature center to a suspension bridge that stretches across Cane Creek above the cascade."

This is the perfect family trail through a mountain hardwood forest. There are a few climbs to exercise the legs, and a lot of level, sandy walks for the kiddies. There are several short spur trails which lead to awesome overlooks! These trails were crawling with wildlife. Several times we ended up within ten yards of whitetail deer! The kids will never forget it!
