Beautiful trail, but the crowds ruin this one. Can't get away from the smell of others cigarettes and the smell of alcohol along the entire trail. Even in the rare moments when we weren't near anyone on the trail, you could still smell cigarette smoke. The actual Cedar Falls was over crowded with plenty of drunk people. I had my kids with me and wish they hadn't experienced that. Will not do this trail again and would not recommend it, especially on the weekend. Maybe it would be better on a weekday.
