This hike is only two miles but it's very nice and good. However, it's kinda easy to get lost - the trail is not very well "marked out" so it's not always easy to choose the right way to walk.

I think the only great spot is the double arch, which is quite beautiful, besides, didn't see any very special rock formation, the water falls that we see is very very tiny, just a very thin stream of water line, didn't see any great scenery,...More

A wonderful place to hike, wade and have a wonderful outdoor experience. Nicely taken care of but on the path you feel you are in an ancient place.

We found this gem close to our timeshare at Crown Point. We pack a couple of waters, through on some good footwear, and made our way out of the parking area to the trail. Just off the parking area on the trail is the map...More

We went on a beautiful day and really enjoyed the rock formations and the trails. Its a nice, long, 2.2 mile hike that is very enjoyable.

A friend of mine once said: this is the longest 2 miles you will ever hike. And, it is because you end up climbing up and around fantastic geological gems. This is a truly unique area and hike. Well worth it!

This relatively short hike has so much going for it. Streams, rock formations, scenic overlook. Beautifully laid out hike.

A beautiful area with cool rock formations. The dogwoods and wild violets were blooming when we visited. The hike is a long enough to be worth the trip but short enough that kids don't get bored.

The Trail Through Time is fun and a nice trail. It has some rugged portions and some parts aren't really clearly marked where the exact trail is but you can't get too lost. Some nice rock formations and small waterfalls.

Hi! There are a few rocks to climb over, but nothing unusual and I saw a number of people with babies in carriers. My only suggestion is to go after it's been relatively dry -- we went the day after a pretty hard rain and... More
