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."
