Grove Creek Professional Review and Guide

"After about 1.5 miles, the trail reaches a bridge over the stream. This wonderful spot is a common turnaround point for those seeking a short day hike. It’s also a cool spot for a break—cascading water crosses bare rock here sending a mist into the air and cooling the entire area. Just below the bridge a series of short waterfalls is visible from the trail.

From here the trail switches back through the pines and up into some grassy meadows to a large, fenced spring, a little over a mile from the bridge. Avoid crossing the fence, which was erected to prevent polluting the spring. From here the trail steepens for a final 0.25-mile climb to the Timpanooke Road. Follow the road south for about 1 mile as it crosses a large, relatively flat shelf. In summer you may encounter 4WDs along this road. Before reaching the Battle Creek Trail junction the road ends, and a single track trail continues straight ahead. Follow the track about 0.5 mile to a signed trail junction in the middle of a green, grassy meadow."

The hike was fantastic, but the guide was completely useless. Almost nothing on it matched up with the actual hike. It's a bit tricky to follow the trail, but has some great views.
This is a great day hike. The hike up is beautiful. Incredible views, amazing waterfalls. I was rying to hike it quickly but had to keep stopping to take pictures to share with non hikers. It was that beautiful! The open meadow and springs at the top were very calming and mellow. The hike down was a little harder to follow and not nearly as picturesque but still a nice walk.
