Beautiful Nature Trails
Jul 2021 • Friends
A large nature preserve with tons of things to see, awesome waterfalls and easy hiking trails.

I definitely recommend taking the gorge trail, a very beautiful waterfall worth seeing!

Nature at its best

Enjoyed taking an afternoon hike around the boulders and to the waterfall. The trails aren't well marked. You can explore in your own. The trails are rocky and have exposed tree roots. My dog and I were able to navigate them.

Pretty good despite the challenges.

Great scenic view, however the preserve could use improvements. For example, the map at the beginning does not have a “You are here” mark, so you don’t even know where you are starting. Then, the trails are not appropriately marked and the preserve should have maps placed throughout for a quick reference for visitors. Another idea could involve placing a brochure at the beginning of the trails if they do not want to place maps throughout that visitors could use. The trails were pretty hard to follow due to the uncleared foliage thus forcing us to guess where the trail continued or ended.

Fun day

Nice hike, main parking lot was easily overlooked. It is at circle near the stores. We ended up in parking lot near the school. A longer hike which was good and nice falls. Worth the visit for us.

Different than expected

The large boulders are interesting. The hiking map at the beginning of the trail is not marked with a "You are Here" stamp so you have no idea where you are starting. The trails that I was on were not marked. And the location is even more weird. Right outside the park drive, in the middle of nowhere, is a new 'old' village. Looks like a movie set from the early 1900's. Bizarre. Apparently they are trying to make a community of houses and shopping area right here on top of the preserve. What a way to ruin nature. If you want to hike around I say go for it. If you tend to get lost I wouldn't try it. If you want to see the movie set neighborhood it might be worth the drive.

Autumn weather: Perfect hiking weather for the Moss Rock Preserve
Oct 2019
We parked at Simmons Middle School (per map instructions on the website) and managed to get sidetracked a lot on our hike, the trail blazes and the map are not the best quality. But, that being said, it really is fantastic to see the boulders and hike through the fallen leaves. This is the best time of year to visit since you can escape hiking in 95 degrees and appreciate some of the changing trees.

Nice trails

Trails are not well marked and if you go in summer the stream and falls and nil. Take when you go: water, sun screen, bug spray, hat, and towel. You can spend hours exploring.

I really enjoyed the walk. The trails were well marked heading in, but I didn’t know how to get to Tacos and Tequila. I ended up at the fire station, which was kind of funny. Got a little more walking than I had intended, but no worse off for the extended tour.

Nice trails near city
Jun 2019
I like hiking and the trails at the Preserve are just challenging enough to be fun. However some improvements are in order. Some of the trail markings are not very visible and some route finding is tricky. Plus some of the direction signposts have been vandalized. The waterfalls are usually not running very well. But because it is close to several municipalities it is easy to do in a day with time left over for other things.
